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.

ArcelorMittal and ZF are pleased to announce the signing of a memorandum of understanding that will contribute to moving the automotive industry towards a more sustainable future, thanks to the combination of ArcelorMittal’s XCarb® recycled and renewably produced steel and ZF's manufacturing expertise. #XCarb #automotive #decarbonisation #lowcarbon

Tankeros, a leader in the manufacture of modular water storage tanks, has found in ArcelorMittal Distribution Iberia a key partner to enhance its processes and products. Thanks to Magnelis®’ outstanding corrosion resistance, the company was able to eliminate the post-galvanising process, thus reducing operating costs while improving the durability of their tanks. #Magnelis #corrosionresistance #XCarb #lowcarbonsteel

WTH Corp (Grupo LaChapelle), Wyndham, SUALSA and ArcelorMittal join forces to build the world’s first hotel containing low carbon-emissions steel structures. The TRYP by Wyndham Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, is being built with wide-flange beams made with XCarb® recycled and renewably produced steel, contributing to reduce the carbon footprint of the project. #XCarb #steelstructures #EAF #lowcarbonsteel

ArcelorMittal has been awarded the contract to supply tracks for the Purple Line section of the Bangkok Metro, operated by MRTA (Mass Rapid Transit Authority), a Thai state enterprise under the Ministry of Transport and responsible for the operation of rapid transit systems in the Bangkok Metropolitan Region. #steelfortransport #rails #tracks #Bangkokmetro

ArcelorMittal’s XCarb® recycled and renewably produced steel fibres have won the “green award” at the Italian Concrete Technology Awards (ICTA). #XCarb #steelfibres #ICTA

ArcelorMittal will be present at Intersolar from 19-21 June 2024, in Munich (Germany), the world's leading exhibition for the solar industry. #Magnelis #solarenergy #steelforsolar #intersolar2024 #XCarb #decarbonisation
