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 Europe will participate in Architect@work, taking place between 30 and 31 January in London.

From November 13 to 16, ArcelorMittal Temirtau, ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih, ArcelorMittal Downstream Solutions and ArcelorMittal International joined Metal-Expo in Moscow, one of the biggest international industrial exhibitions in Russia and CIS.

Between 28 and 30 November, ArcelorMittal participated in the World Architecture Festival, in Amsterdam, Netherlands. A great opportunity for our company to showcase our products and solutions dedicated to construction and to promote our Steligence® concept.

ArcelorMittal took part in SIMI, the professional real estate trade fair, organised from 5 to 7 December 2018 in Paris. For the first time in France, ArcelorMittal presented its innovative concept Steligence® during a conference that took place on 5 December, within the Connected Buildings & Territories Forum.

The London Underground, nicknamed "the Tube", is a great way to travel and discover London and its hot spots. Londoners and London lovers, you will soon be able to explore parts of the city on ArcelorMittal rails as ArcelorMittal Europe – Long Products Rails & Special sections just secured the contract to supply rails for the Northern Line Extension (NLE).

ArcelorMittal Europe – Long Products Sheet Piling participated in the 7th National Congress and the 4th Mediterranean Days celebrated by the Spanish Technical Association of Ports and Coasts (ATPyC). The key topic this year was Working with Nature, focusing on the sustainable development of maritime infrastructures.

An ultra-modern furnace in ArcelorMittal Gent's Sidgal 3 hot dip galvanizing line was officially inaugurated on 8 November 2018 in the presence of Honorary Governor Jan Briers. The new furnace represents an investment of 65 million euros. With the arrival of the new furnace, ArcelorMittal Gent is able to galvanize the latest generation of advanced high-strength steels, including Fortiform®. On the same day, a 'Customer Day' took place, during which we introduced our customers to this groundbreaking line.
