Seminar on magnetic materials for the optimisation of motors, generators and other advanced applications

July 26, 2017

The UK Magnetics Society will hold ‘MagMatApp’17: Magnetic Materials for the Optimisation of Motors, Generators and Other Advanced Applications’ in Hanau, Germany, October 4-5, 2017. Sponsored and hosted by Germany’s Vacuumschmelze GmbH & Co KG (VAC), the two-day seminar will include papers on new permanent magnets, new soft magnetic alloys, cut core technology for power electronics, magnetic refrigeration, commercial recycling of rare earth magnets and a look at alternative elements, amongst others.

The two-day magnetic materials seminar, which was last hosted by VAC in 2012, will look at new products for a variety of markets in conjunction with ideas for design optimisation. During the seminar, a selection of speakers from academia and industry will present their experience in magnetic materials, as well as their preferences for different machine topologies to cope with increasing power demands as electrification spreads to more diverse market sectors.

Presentations will include:

  • New Grades of SmCo for High Power Density Motors
    Dr Kaan Uestuener, VACUUMSCHMELZE GmbH & Co KG
  • An Update on CALORIVAC
    Dr Alexander Barcza, VACUUMSCHMELZE GmbH & Co KG
  • VACOFLUX® 27 – A New High Saturation Fe-27%Co Alloy
    Dr Frederik Fohr, VACUUMSCHMELZE GmbH & Co KG
  • Recent in advances in Cut Core Technology for High Power Electronics
    Dr Gabriela Saage, VACUUMSCHMELZE GmbH & Co KG
  • Motor Topology
    Prof Geraint Jewell, University of Sheffield
  • High Performance Drivetrain for Formula Student Electric racing
    Tobias Zumsteg, AMZ Racing Team
  • High Performance Drivetrain for Acrobatic Aeroplane
    Steven Duenki & Patrick Walti, Evolaris Aviation
  • Optimisation of Magnets for Motor Design Using Field Shaping
    Dr-Ing Jörn Steinbrink, Hannover University
  • Substitution of Critical Elements in Magnetic Materials
    Prof Dr Oliver Gutfliesch, TU Darmstadt
  • RE Permanent Magnets For Motors & Generators – Applications & Requirements
    Dr Michael Krispen, Siemens AG
  • Recycling of Magnets on an Industrial Scale
    Dr Badrinath Veluri, Grundfos A/S
  • 3D Printed Magnets
    Dr Christian Huber, Technical University Vienna
  • Recent Advances in Isotropic Melt-Spun Nd-Fe-B Magnetic Powders for Automotive Applications
    Dr Zhongmin Chen, Magnequench

The event is expected to offer attendees the opportunity to network with other seminar delegates throughout the daily programme, as well as during social events. VAC will once again provide a tour of its manufacturing facility in Hanau, which previously included a general description of PM production from raw materials to finished magnets.
