ArcelorMittal electrical steel data now available in the state-of-the art machine calculation tool JMAG

JMAG and ArcelorMittal announce the availability of ArcelorMittal electrical steel data in the JMAG leading simulation software suite for electrical machines design. This offers a unique opportunity for electrical machines manufacturers to shorten the lead time of their new designs, reduce the number of prototypes, decrease their overall development costs as well as to get deep insights of physics in a machine for innovative designs.

“High quality material data is essential for our customers to make successful simulations. Obtaining genuine material information from leading steel manufacturers is one of the key-drivers of our strategy”, comments Dr Takashi Yamada, Product Leader, JMAG. “ArcelorMittal’s leading range of electrical steels, its geographical presence and its advanced engineering skills including material modelling for finite element analysis made it key for us to integrate them into our software.”

The two companies established their cooperation 2015. The new simulation data, integrated since then, allows a more efficient design of electric motors, generators and transformers.

“Among other applications, electrical vehicles development is going fast in Europe. Our electromagnetic steel data into the tool allows faster and more accurate simulations for applications such as hybrid cars or 100% electrical vehicles”, explains Sigrid Jacobs, portfolio director for electrical steels at ArcelorMittal Global R&D.

Furthermore, using JMAG fosters communication between manufacturer’s engineers and ArcelorMittal R&D specialists, who can assist them with advanced material characterization data, an in-house loss model and a number of expertise in areas such as mechanical behaviour, punching or machine assembly techniques.
