Forms & Dimensions

Aperam alloys are designed and elaborated at our Imphy melt shop, which is renowned for its metallurgy expertise and in-depth knowledge on an array of applications.
Starting from an ingot, the product first undergoes melting and re-melting before being sent to our hot and cold rolling mills, where it is perfectly transformed into the final product.
Our alloys are available in all forms, including billets, ingots, bars, plates, slabs, wire rod, and cold rolled strips.

Bar (& Semis)

  • Round: Diameter from 20mm to 400mm, ground, peeled or turned.

Magnetic core

  • We produce customised magnetic cores in a wide range of permeability (from 200 to 1000000), materials (specially Nano-crystalline) and shapes (Oval, round and rectangular). Cores can be boxed or epoxy coated.
  • We also offer cut-cores and subassemblies. Our cores find their application for filtering, current measurement and electrical safety.

Stamped part

  • We have specialised knowledge in annealing of magnetic alloys together with state of the art stamping process. Our development capabilities are further enhanced through the integrated melting and rolling facilities of Aperam Alloys Imphy.
  • Typical usage of our stamped parts are for torque sensor parts, motor stator and rotor parts, transformer E/I parts, shielding parts etc.
