Motor designers in markets such as aerospace, motorsports, automotive, and industrial are challenged to continually improve the efficiency of their high efficiency, high switching frequency applications. These applications demand the best magnetic materials, and Arnold L Type laminated magnets maximize performance under extreme conditions.
Aaron Williams, Arnold Magnetic Technologies' Engineering Manager, will speak about magnetic material selection at the upcoming Motor & Drive Systems Conference. The conference focuses on on the latest technical advancements impacting the design and integration of motor, drive systems and motion control for manufacturing, industrial and packaging, as well as automotive/EV applications.
The entire Arnold Team would like to extend best wishes to you and your family for a Happy Thanksgiving.
Counting you among our customers is something for which we are especially grateful, and we appreciate your confidence in us.
Thank You, Veterans
Arnold Magnetic Technologies would like to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who has served our country in the armed forces. As a manufacturer of materials and components for a range of military applications, we are grateful to contribute in some small part to the ability of these brave m
Arnold Magnetic Technologies will showcase its high performance magnetic materials for the oil and gas market at next week’s SPE Artificial Lift Conference and Exhibition—North America. The conference focuses on case studies and best practices in artificial lift applications, primarily for unconventional shale developments.
Following in the slipstream of the aerospace industry, automotive OEMs are increasingly turning to new materials and technologies to reduce weight and improve energy efficiency in their products. The use of magnet-based motor designs is one approach that is translating successfully to the automotive industry.
Permanent Magnets Dominate EV
Vehicle electrification is a growing market for rare earth magnets. Consumption of rare earth magnets in transportation is estimated to rise from 7,000 tons in 2015 to 17,000 tons in 2020. Government mandates to reduce pollution, as well as high gasoline prices, are driving users to purchase more environmentally friendly vehicles. Permanent magnet machines are currently the leading choice for high performance automotive applications. The rotor’s well-balanced magnetic field and the lower stator current requirement, paired with very strong positional control, result in a higher motor efficiency. Two common choices for electric vehicle applications are neodymium magnets and samarium cobalt magnets, and each has its advantages.
We’re excited to share that Arnold Magnetic Technologies is partnering with Ames Laboratory to improve the magnetic properties of Alnico for use in energy efficient traction-drive motors.
Arnold’s Aaron Williams will give a presentation at the
(TechCon) in New Orleans in October. The presentation will discuss permanent and soft magnetic materials that improve performance in motor and generators.
