Soft magnetic composites
– enabling more efficient electromagnetic designs
Somaloy – soft magnetic composite technology for the future
Somaloy® is Höganäs’ trademark for soft magnetic composite powders with unique 3D flux properties. The Somaloy materials are developed for component manufacturing of electromagnetic applications, providing high performance and low losses. They are designed for efficient volume production at low cost, by utilising state-of-the-art technology. It is the 3D magnetic properties and the net shaping capabilities of the Somaloy materials that open up new opportunities to design compact, light and cost-efficient solutions.
Examples of how Somaloy can provide lower production costs:
- Size and weight reduction of components
- Reduction of the total number of parts in the final application
- Less need for machining
- Low scrap rate in manufacturing
Metal powders contribute to sustainable development
Metal powder technology provides endless opportunities; not only does it enable our customers to reduce their material and energy consumption, but it also helps them use new and better techniques that make final products more efficient and less expensive.
We believe that the inherent power of metal powders can be utilised to a much larger extent than it is today. We are also convinced that metal powders can contribute to sustainable development. With metal powder solutions, we can contribute to solving many of society’s pressing challenges, such as resource scarcity, shortage of clean water and the need for renewable energy.
