Cobalt-iron material increases power density for motor applications
With its new CoFe alloy Vacoflux X1, Vacuumschmelze has succeeded in closing the existing gap between electrical steel and materials with a high cobalt content. The material can increase torque up to 12.5% compared to NO20 material, without rotor adaptation. The new material also supports increased efficiency, reducing copper losses by up to 28 %, according to a recent study cited by the manufacturer. This leads to an increase in the achievable range of the vehicle without having to increase the size of the battery.
