On 26 / 27.4.2022, the first International Electrical Steel Sheet Summit – IESSS 2022 – took place in Aachen.
Almost 100 participants from industry and science were present. In the accompanying exhibition, the Gold sponsors ArcelorMittal and Waelzholz as well as the exhibitors Brockhaus and dr.schenk presented their portfolio. Supporter of the event is the association ZVEi.
Topics were : Steel grades; Processing technologies; Modelling, Simulation & Testing.
In a total of 24 lectures, developments of the entire process chain, from steel and electrical steel sheet production including insulation coatings, the further processing of the steel sheet into rotor and stator packages (punching, packaging, joining) were reported.
In addition, new developments in process-accompanying tests such as surface inspection, measurement methods for magnetic properties, coating thickness, and bonding strength.
The additive manufacturing of electrical steel sheets was shown as a new developed process.
Further aspects and developments of the lectures concerned the Live cycle assessment, the Design models for electrical machines including their Simulation as well as the Fatigue life of electrical steel components.
It was a good mix of technical and scientific lectures with intensive discussions after the lectures as well as in the exhibition / lunch area.
The location was well chosen and attractive, the organizing team was dedicated.
We would be happy if we could meet again in 2024 for the 2. IESSS.
