ESSIAL Project

ESSIAL is a research project funded by the European Commission “European Union´s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme”. The ambition of the project is to use laser surface texturizing (laser scribing, irradiation, texturizing, …) on soft ferromagnetic materials, such as usual electrical steels and special alloys, in order to improve the performance and functionalities of laminated magnetic circuits.

These soft magnetic circuits, made from stack of steel sheets separated by an insulating layer, are becoming crucial in almost all industrial sectors, as they are key elements of industrial electrical machines (such as transformers, sensors, actuators, motors, generators …). Experts estimate that the market growth rate of soft magnetic materials will increase by 7.8% annually in the coming years!
