Electrical plates are also called electronic plates or silicon plates. Compared to regular steel plates, silicon plates contain more silicon, featuring good electric and magnetic characteristics.
POSCO produces over 1 million tons of electrical steel sheets every year. The non-grain oriented electrical steel has a different, non-uniform crystal orientation. Its main applications include products containing rotating parts, such as motors and generators. Grain oriented electrical steel has a uniform crystal orientation, featuring a much higher magnetic performance. Its main applications include products that have a stationary phase, such as transformers. Demand for electrical steel is increasing as the need for clean energy sources is rising to save energy and prevent environmental pollution.
