Carpenter Technology has introduced a new soft-magnetic alloy, Cartech Hypocore alloy, which can provide lower core loss when compared to Cartech Hiperco alloys.

When compared to Si steels, the alloy provides higher induction, even at a low applied magnetic field. Additionally, the alloy can be used at higher frequencies with less heat generation. Cartech Hypocore also has low coercivity, high permeability, and high electrical resistivity, which makes motors and generators operate more efficiently. This new material is suitable for next generation electrical machines and electromagnetic devices such as laminations or assembled cores for small machines.

Initial manufacturing is already underway and material is available upon request at different sheet thicknesses (from 0.005 inches to 0.025 inches) for testing and prototyping purposes.
