SG Technologies launches Cobalt Iron
01 September 2014
Although Cobalt Iron has been available for many years, its price tag has often precluded it from cost sensitive automotive applications. The high raw material price combined with processing difficulties and material wastage from machining processes has prevented its use in many products, despite the obvious performance benefits.
"ultra-high density" powder metal process
SG Technologies has successfully developed a method for processing Cobalt Iron using its unique "ultra-high density" powder metal process. This means that soft magnetic components can be manufactured using the efficient, low waste (net shape) SGT process. And most importantly, engineers can finally benefit from the excellent magnetic properties of Cobalt Iron without the historic commercial disadvantages.
