Berlin, we are there!
At CWIEME, the venue for transformer, electric motor and power generation industries in Europe, the Business Unit Electrical Steel and the Automotive sales unit of thyssenkrupp Steel are of course, not fail to be present.
The importance of electrical steel for the energy transition is huge. Our grain-oriented electrical steel produced in Gelsenkirchen (DE), Isbergues (FR) and Nashik (IND) remains an indispensable core material for energy-efficient and sustainable generation, transmission, distribution and use of electricity. Especially in the CO2-reduced bluemint® powercore® variant, we make a valuable contribution to effectively combating climate change and positively shaping the energy transition.
- Top grades: Technologically sophisticated top powercore® grades, which are characterized by particularly low core losses and thus achieve high efficiencies in current conversion. The ultra-thin electrical steel, no thicker than 0.23 mm, is used primarily in modern high-efficiency and low-noise transformers.
- inTrafo software: New software solution for designing and optimizing transformer cores according to IEC standards and global efficiency regulations. The software enables the calculation of the transformer core using different grain-oriented electrical steel grades in the same core. The result: best and most cost-effective core material combination to minimize no-load losses.
- Innovative powercore® Rotate grades: Grain-oriented electrical steel for high-efficiency electric motors and generators. New drive concepts for e-vehicles, such as axial flux motors made from powercore® Rotate material, can increase power density and thus achieve greater vehicle range.
- powercore® Traction: grades specially developed and optimized to meet the requirements of highly efficient and powerful e-drives for long ranges and maximum driving dynamics. Here thyssenkrupp Steel Europe, as one of the leading suppliers of non-grain-oriented electrical steel, is getting e-mobility rolling.
Furthermore, we presented our CO2-reduced electrical steel bluemint® Steel powercore® at the Coil Winding Expo in Berlin and showed where the material is already being used. As a pioneer in the energy transition, thyssenkrupp Steel aims to produce 3 million metric tons of CO2-reduced steel per year from 2030 on. We plan to make steel production completely climate-neutral by 2045. bluemint® Steel was launched in October 2021 and is the first CO2-reduced product.
