Arnold Magnetic Technologies Launches Record-Breaking RECOMA 35E Samarium Cobalt Material
Arnold Magnetic Technologies Posted 03/11/2016
Arnold Magnetic Technologies introduced today their premier samarium cobalt (SmCo) magnet material, RECOMA® 35E, the strongest magnetic material available in the world.
RECOMA 35E is Arnold’s latest market-leading permanent magnet material in both coercivity and maximum flux density. Not only does it deliver an even higher field than RECOMA 33E samarium cobalt, but it does so with no sacrifice in stability. This superior performance can enable greater power density in motors and generators in all applications, enabling reduction in size and weight while improving efficiency. For example:
- Electric rotors in aerospace applications can considerably reduce weight without impacting power.
- In motorsports, peak torque optimizes engine performance, enabling improved overall powertrain performance.
- Miniaturization of electric motors enables the next generation of electrified commercial vehicles.
SmCo materials from Arnold also allow manufacturers to reduce supply chain risk by designing out reliance on rare dysprosium (Dy) materials.
“Our customers already expect the best performance in the market from our RECOMA 33E material, and the 35E takes it up another notch,” Arnold CEO Tim Wilson said. “We’re thrilled to be able to offer this record-breaking, high performance material, which can make a world of difference in demanding applications.”
