CWIEME Berlin: the magnet for electrical steels

From 4 to 6 June 2013, the Coil Winding, Insulation & Electrical Manufacturing Exhibition (CWIEME) in Berlin was the place-to-be for manufacturers of electricity generators, motors and transformers.

At this trade fair, ArcelorMittal representatives presented our worldwide offer for the core materials of electromagnetic applications.

This offer included:

  • Fully processed and semi-processed non-oriented (NO) electrical steels
  • Grain-oriented (GO) electrical

These magnetic materials are used in basic household appliances, as well as in high-tech micromotors, aeronautic applications and in the largest high-efficiency motors, generators and transformers. Typical application of ArcelorMittal's electrical steels are power generators, industrial motors, railway and automotive traction.

Focus on recent investments and growth markets

The focus was not only be on the numerous industry applications but also on the applications for the automotive industry. ArcelorMittal's iCARe® offer is the first electrical steel product range designed specifically to meet the requirements of the electric vehicle (EV) sector.

As part of the iCARe® project, ArcelorMittal has also completed a €90m investment in the creation of a new continuous annealing line at its production facility at St-Chély d’Apcher, France. Potentially capable of producing up to 120,000 tonnes of iCARe® steels per year, this production line will support the development of further breakthrough innovations for the automotive steel sector, helping to meet growing global demand from EV manufacturers.
