We offer progressive solutions for companies looking to acquire laminations further processed into finished or semi-finished assemblies. As we grow, we are continuing to invest in equipment and processing capabilities. Our value-added assemblies help customers increase their productivity and reduce costs in their operations.
Distributed Gap (DG) Cores
We offer a variety of DG Core sizes and designs for the small to medium distribution transformer market. Our processing of DG cores increases efficiency while maintaining material costs due to our ability to enhance the magnetic characteristics by annealing.
We produce cut cores by winding long strips of electrical steel on a mandrel to tight specifications. Then, after a precision cutting process, the core splits into two pieces. Notably, the individual cores takes on a “C” shaped configuration with rectangular rounded corners. The two sections get polished at the interface and mated together in a process designed to minimize gaps between the two halves. To emphasize, producing cores by this process saves electrical energy due to low specific iron watt losses. This is ideal for applications such as medium transformer sizes.
Miter Cut Laminations
We produce miter cut laminations in stacks of five to seven lams. Designed to overlap when assembled and step stacked with mating pieces so that the grain orientation aligns with the direction of the magnetic flux. In general, these cores are commonly used when constructing large power transformers where electrical core loss is minimized. In fact, this is key for the transformer design. Additionally, we provide pre-assembled laminations in log form for assembly by the end-user.
Lamination Specialties welds a variety of core configurations and sizes to customer specifications. In fact, we offer processing for robotic and manual welding. In addition, we specialize in providing fabricated parts such as brackets and mountings, from our sister companies within the UPG organization.
Taped & Assembled Shunts
We are constantly producing shunts in a wide range of sizes and tolerance specifications. Materials available, slit-in house, from widths of 0.60” to 21.0” in thicknesses from 0.007” to 0.025”.
