In the group Soft Magnetic Materials, innovative powder technologies are used to manufacture soft magnetic components with reduced losses or special property profiles. Different concepts are pursued depending on the requirements especially the frequency range. Common to all is the powder metallurgical manufacturing which enables the near-net-shape processing from a broad variety of materials. Mostly, iron-based alloy systems are analyzed. Depending on the concept, the components can be manufactured using a wide variety of processes. An important focus is the development of soft magnetic composites with inorganic coating for high frequency ranges.
