Toshiba’s New Magnetic Material Improves Motor Energy Conversion Efficiency

Researchers at Toshiba Corporation have developed a new magnetic material that delivers major improvements in motor efficiency at minimum cost, and with the potential to win significant reductions in power consumption. It has been found to greatly boost motor energy conversion efficiency when it is used as the wedges in the motor, particularly in medium to large induction motors. The material can be installed at minimal cost with no need for design changes. […]
