Soft Magnetic Composites in Electric motors
Electric motors impact almost every aspect of modern society. They are used in most industrial processes and at some point in the manufacturing of nearly every conceivable product that is produced in a modern factory. Hair dryers, fans, air conditioners, refrigerators and freezers, vacuum cleaners and food blenders, and a multitude of other appliances we use in our daily lives all use electric motors to convert electrical energy to mechanical energy.
The electric motor is now also rapidly being established as the foundation of future transportation in hybrid and battery electric cars, and furthermore as electric drive source of former mechanical auxiliary systems such as pumps and A/C compressors.
