To produce electric vehicles and related charging stations, electric steel is indispensable. SMS group offers technologies allowing conventional integrated steelworks to produce high-quality electric strip.
Many car makers and countries have been announcing not to produce or register any vehicles equipped with combustion engines in the near future. All around the globe, sales figures of electric vehicles keep growing. Electric steel, which is also called silicon steel, is absolutely essential to be able to provide the necessary electrical drive systems and an adequate infrastructure with a closely knit network of charging stations. Studies show that the demand for electrically driven industrial motors, cooling units and further small and large electrical applications is on the rise, with the applications often being networked.
Due to its advantageous electromagnetic properties, electric strip is a key material for efficient motors, generators and transformers. Even though the production route is very complex as compared to conventional steel grades, SMS group offers technologies allowing conventional integrated steelworks to produce high-quality silicon strip. This will enable steel producers to benefit from the e-mobility trend, the growing demand for electric strip and the price rise involved.
