MK Magnetics, Inc. has been providing high-quality tape-wound magnetic cores for the military industry since June 2003. Founded in April of that same year to meet the industry’s need for high-quality cores, MK Magnetics continues to fill that need to this day.

Our magnetic cores are built to last with superior durability and reliability. As such, they can be found at the heart of navigation systems, remote-sensing applications, and defense networks, dependent on robust life-cycle cost performance.

We sell our tape-wound soft magnetic cores domestically and internationally and maintain a quality control system in accordance with ISO 9001:2015. With over 16 years of faithful service, MK Magnetics is your trusted source for Military industry solutions.


What is a Magnetic Core?

Magnetic cores are a type of magnetic material that is used for various electrical and electronic applications. Magnetic cores are most commonly made from the following materials:

  • Iron alloys
  • Nanocrystalline
  • Ferrites (not sold by MK Magnetics)

Magnetic cores are engineered with high permeability materials, which allows them to transfer magnetic flux effectively.

At MK Magnetics, we specialize in engineering and manufacturing high-performance tape-wound magnetic cores for military/aerospace applications. Our advanced design capabilities enable us to customize our products to meet your exact requirements and offer magnetic cores for higher efficiency and reduced losses.

Nanocrystalline Core

Nanocrystalline cores are perfect for reducing core losses while providing high permeability and saturation characteristics required in large inductor applications. These characteristics allow for more compact magnetic designs.

The nanocrystalline cores provide a cost-effective solution for military and aerospace applications that demand stringent safety and performance requirements compared to ferrite cores. 

Between a nanocrystalline core vs. a ferrite core, the nanocrystalline core material is far superior to ferrite cores, which have limited frequency and current capabilities.


Common uses of Magnetic Cores in the Military/Aerospace Industry

Magnetic cores have provided various uses, from controlling power flow through toroidal core transformers to enabling precision measurements with toroidal core instruments. 

In particular, magnetic cores can accommodate high current flows and help reduce equipment size while still providing excellent performance.

Tape wound magnetic cores are standard in many applications, including:

  • Missile guidance systems
  • Navigation systems.
  • Radar systems
  • Signal processing systems
  • High-frequency signal control

Their highly efficient low-profile design provides significant space savings while ensuring reliable operation in harsh environments. Metal magnetic cores offer a reliable and cost-effective way of delivering superior performance to such demanding applications.
