Custom Magnetic Products for Renewable Energy Applications
The exponential growth in the renewables market has allowed us at MK Magnetics, Inc. to become a major supplier of cores for transformers and low loss inverter and converter filter cores to this dynamic industry. Our products support solar and wind projects around the globe and include thermally stable, multiple-cut amorphous and nanocrystalline cores as well as large stacked and bonded assemblies. From small planar cores to cores weighing as much as 4,000 lbs. Our success in this market is built on a reputation for delivering standard and custom products that can meet the requirements of a broad range of applications. This is possible through advanced design capabilities and manufacturing processes that are at the forefront of the magnetics industry.
MK Magnetics' tape wound cores can be manufactured with multiple cuts and from various alloys such as silicon steel, amorphous, and ultra-low loss nanocrystalline. Manufacturing processes include computer-controlled annealing lines that take place in tightly controlled atmospheric conditions. We also utilize cutting edge insulative coatings and high strength, high-temperature proprietary bonding epoxies that provide superior quality bonds.
A key element in all of our manufacturing processes is quality; we operate an ISO 9001:2008 certified facility and conform to EIA standard RS 217 as a standard practice. Our comprehensive development to delivery solutions include volumes that range from a single prototype to long-term contract manufacturing. The value that we offer has allowed our products to be deployed in renewable applications that range from power generation to transportation.
