The automotive industry is experiencing significant technological advancements in energy efficiency. Driving this transformation are the CAFE 2020 standards, which require automotive vehicles to achieve remarkable efficiency gains from today.
As design efforts continue to move toward more energy-efficient systems, new technologies are emerging. Innovations such as Thermal Energy Recovery Systems and electrically assisted turbochargers use permanent magnet motors and generators in order to improve vehicle efficiencies.
High-performance magnetic materials from Arnold, such as RECOMA 35E samarium cobalt, support motor systems that are smaller, lighter and more efficient while operating in high-speed, high-heat environments.
These capabilities enable vehicles to meet stricter fuel efficiency and emissions regulations. Products include RECOMA® samarium cobalt, Arnon® silicon steel, shaped field magnets and Wraptite carbon fibre sleeving, as well as system integration of these materials.
