ArcelorMittal at CWIEME 2015: responding to market trends in energy efficiency

Berlin, 23 April 2015 – ArcelorMittal will participate in CWIEME 2015, the world’s leading exhibition for coil winding, insulation and electrical manufacturing held from 5 to 7 May in Berlin, to present its broad range of electrical steels and R&D capabilities in developing the electrical steels of the future.


New European energy efficiency targets coming into force in 2015 are pushing towards greater efficiency in electrical machines and transformers. In response to this evolution, ArcelorMittal provides the best low-loss [1] non-oriented [2] electrical steels on the market, a range of innovative electrical steels for the automotive market, and specific grades of grain-oriented [3] electrical steels for transformer manufacturers.

At CWIEME 2015, ArcelorMittal will present its broad range of steel grades with specific magnetic properties, used in domestic appliances, building industry, mechanical engineering, electrical equipment, motors and generators, as well as the automotive industry. These include:

  • Fully processed and semi-processed non-oriented (NO) electrical steels
  • iCARe®, a range of innovative electrical steels for the automotive market, designed to help automakers create environmentally friendly mobility solutions
  • Grain-oriented (GO) electrical steels
  • Cores of magnetic circuits

Developing the electrical steels of the future

ArcelorMittal’s research and development teams have been applying their expertise in high performance electrical steels for the last 30 years to better anticipate market needs, with specialists dedicated to the different aspects of electrical steel such as texture, structure, coatings, magnetism, mechanical behaviour including fatigue, punching and machine assembly techniques.

As a result of these R&D initiatives, ArcelorMittal is perfectly positioned to develop the next generation of low loss, high permeability electrical steels and optimize the performance of its production lines, such as its new annealing line at Saint-Chély in France, inaugurated in September 2013.

Our advanced technical support using specific software and in-house testing tools allows ArcelorMittal to help its customers to optimize the design and manufacture of their machines.

Today, ArcelorMittal is running 10 major co-engineering and co-design programmes with major producers of high efficiency electrical machines.

ArcelorMittal will be present at stand 41A11 in hall 4.1.

[1] Low level of energy dissipation

[2] Electrical steel made with a special processing to make the steel as isotropic as possible, meaning when the steel is used in motors, these will have a smooth torque. Used for motors and generators (rotating machines)

[3] Electrical steel processed in such a way that its properties and crystal orientation are developed in the rolling direction. Used in power and distribution transformers.

From 17 till 19 October 2017, ArcelorMittal will be present at EuroCarBody to showcase our most innovative products and solutions to support carmakers in optimising weight and cost, while reducing carbon emissions and, crucially, ensuring that stringent safety standards are met.

Located near Rennes in France, the Madiba residence is recognisable from afar thanks to its long shiny steel balconies running along the façades. They were entirely built with Littoral® and ST Lumiere Kristal®* steel sheets provided by ArcelorMittal Construction, giving the building a luminous modern look.

Galeria Polnocna, a modern and functional new shopping centre opens its doors in Warsaw (Poland). It was built using 6,000 tonnes of rebars produced by ArcelorMittal Europe – Long Products.

ArcelorMittal is launching the extended version of its Orange book, an essential aid for engineers in the design of steel buildings and structures.

ArcelorMittal Engineering Products Ostrava, a subsidiary of ArcelorMittal Ostrava recently signed a contract extension to supply tram axles to Škoda Transportation for three more years.

The Metal Structures Centre (MSC) in Ghent houses part of ArcelorMittal’s Global R&D division. In order to showcase new ArcelorMittal steels and solutions, the site has stepped-up a project to use ArcelorMittal’s innovative products in a more eye-catching way.
