Burgess-Norton’s SMC application team is a recognized leader in the industry. We have activated our expertise in more than 30 development projects with nearly 20 customers worldwide.
oft magnetic composites (SMC) are insulation coated ferrous powder metal (PM) materials that are molded into a net—or near net—shape component. A high-pressure compaction process is applied to mold SMC components into a variety of complex shapes capable of producing three dimensional magnetic flux patterns. Both shape capability and unique magnetic properties make components produced from SMC a superior alternative to lamination stack technology.
Our specialization in the compaction of complex components, and ability to define magnetic fields in three dimensions, enable customers to create improved or entirely new machine concepts from the parts we design. Additional benefits include enhanced performance technology and reduced costs, making Burgess-Norton the logical partner for SMC products.
