At Höganäs, our vision is to “Inspire industry to make more with less”.

We believe that our metal powders technology provides opportunities that enable our customers not only to reduce their material and energy consumption, but also deliver more efficient and less expensive products.

We are also convinced that with metal powder solutions we can contribute to solving many of the world’s greatest challenges, such as resource scarcity, shortage of clean water and the need for renewable energy.

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.
