Today's power electronics applications demand smaller, lighter and more efficient magnetic cores
CorePower Magnetics produces metal amorphous nanocrystalline magnetic cores with scalable, in-line manufacturing processes. The patented materials and processes address three key challenges: thermal management, power density and efficiency. Our processes provide the ability to spatially engineer magnetic core properties to optimize performance across these dimensions.
We have developed a new class of metal amorphous nanocrystalline FeCo and FeNi alloys, capable of withstanding tension annealing. The unique material properties of these alloys provide flexibility and control in engineering the magnetic core properties in our products.
Our in-line processes apply time-varying mechanical, magnetic or other applied fields to engineer for ultimate magnetic core performance. This process transforms amorphous metal ribbon into spatially tuned, high performance magnetic cores for power electronics components.
