ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE MATERIALS AND THERMOELECTRIC MATERIALS
Electrical and thermal resistance materials
Isabellenhütte is one of the most important manufacturers of electrical resistance materials and thermoelectric materials for temperature measurement as well as of passive components for the automotive, electrical and electronics industries. The field of Precision Measurement Technology sets standards when it comes to measuring current, voltage and temperature in cars and trucks, but also in hybrid and electric vehicles as well as in industrial and regenerative energy production systems.
In the area of Business Development of Precision Alloys there are two major technologies currently being developed – Thermoelectrics and Powder Metallurgy. The object of this development is a thermoelectrical module, so called thermogenerator. The thermogenerator is an assembly that allows for the direct conversion of waste heat into electrical current. The main advantage of this technology compared to conventional systems is the high longevity and ease of maintenance, which results in the thermogenerator not requiring any moving components for the conversion. In addition, we are looking for methods to further refine established Isabellenhütte alloys in new ways. One possibility is the atomization of the alloys into a fine powder. Then the alloy powder can, for example, be brought into a functional form by means of metal powder injection molding (MIM) or 3D printing (additive production). Advantages of these alternative production processes can be cost savings and the implementation of complex component geometries.
