Inductor Core Solutions For Today's Applications


Company Overview

Micrometals is a global industry leader in the design and manufacture of soft magnetic iron and alloy powder cores used in inductors, coils and transformers for power applications in industrial, communications, transportation, consumer, medical, and defense products. Our customers are driving advances in electric vehicles, EV chargers, renewable energy, medical imaging, efficient power conversion and smart devices.

Founded in 1951 and headquartered in California, USA, Micrometals is the largest manufacturer of distributed gap powder cores in a variety of standard materials, shapes and sizes. Our materials are optimized for excelling in either power conversion or signal filtering applications, while we also provide materials that work in both applications.

Micrometals is operating 3 global production sites and is ISO and AITF certified.

Off-the-Shelf Alloy and Iron Powder Cores   Custom Inductor Cores

Broadest Selection of Standard and Custom Materials

We formulate our own metal powders to assure they meet the highest quality and performance standards and provide unmatched consistency to our customers.  Ongoing refinement in our material composition and processing capabilities have resulted in materials with state-of-the-art performance at competitive price points.

While we offer thousands of off-the-shelf products, Micrometals has unmatched capabilities to provide quick-turn modified products, custom geometries and customized materials to solve challenging application requirements.

Advanced Inductor Design Tools

As an engineering focused organization, we offer a free, on-line software design tool that helps customers come up with the optimal inductor solution for their applications -

In addition, a variety of advanced design capabilities are made available to our customer by working closely with our Application Engineers. These calculation intensive tools model the inductor's performance and provide design trade-offs between the part's electrical performance, size, weight and cost, so as to arrive at the optimal component for the application. Finite element analysis can also show the magnetic fields around the component, to assure that the impact on adjacent electronic components is taken into consideration.
