Description

Belarus scientific institute developed new method and equipment for synthesis of metallic powder, which is then used to produce soft magnetic materials with new properties. Produced materials can be used as replacement for electromagnetic steel. In comparison to electromagnetic steel the soft magnetic materials have no eddy current losses at high frequencies due to electrical insulation of individual iron particles in the ferrite layer. The advantages for low frequency (50 Hz) applications are high linearity of magnetic characteristic and thermal stability. The manufacturing of parts using powder metallurgy means non-waste production and lower cost of finished products. Typical applications of soft magnetic materials incl. electric motors, transformers, broadband electromagnetic screens, etc. Specification of powder synthesis equipment: * Particle size: 40-150 micrometers * Average thickness of ferrite layer: 1-3 nanometers, compared to ca. 1 micrometer competitor * Working temperature: 150-200 C, compared to ca. 1000 C competitor * Productivity of single plant: 50 kg/h (scalable). Parameters of offered soft magnetic materials based on iron powder: * Magnetic saturation induction: up to 2.1 T, compared to 1.7 T competitor * Working frequency: 100 Hz - 1 MHz, compared to 50-100Hz competitor * Low electromagnetic losses. Density of components manufactured by moulding powder under 0.5-0.6 GPa pressure is 7.3-7.5 g/cm3. The institute seeks cooperation with industrial partners for license agreement, commercial agreement with technical assistance or joint venture agreement. R&D organisation interested in improving the technology and equipment for production of soft magnetic materials based on iron powder under research cooperation agreement.

Advantages and innovations

Working temperature in offered technology is 150-200 C, compared to ca. 1000 C used in existing methods to produce soft magnetic materials. This reduces the production costs of the materials in 1.5-2 times compared to existing methods. Main advantages of offered soft magnetic materials: * Magnetic saturation induction: up to 2.1 T, compared to 1.7 T competitor * Working frequency: 100 Hz - 1 MHz, compared to 50-100Hz competitor.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.

?What value does EEN add?
This is your pitch: remember to include your unique selling points (USP) and why someone would want to do business with you
