Power Magnetics, Inc. Celebrates 45 Years

PMI celebrated its 45th anniversary in 2013 with a festive gathering recently. “Power Magnetics has just completed its new strategic plan and we are in the process of implementing it as we look to significant growth over the next few years as a leader among transformer manufacturers,” said Carl A. Bannwart, the company’s president.

“We are re-inventing ourselves again as we continue to adapt to a changing market in the power quality solutions industry,” said Michael Smith, Power Magnetics’ Business Development Manager.

Even with the current economic softness, PMI continues to open new markets, some of which are energy production industries and power factor correction for a broad range of industries from mining to manufacturing and electrical substations.

One of the growing applications is the use of iron core harmonic filter reactors in metal enclosed capacitor banks (MECB) or metal enclosed filter banks which are displacing large air core reactors for power factor correction and harmonic filter applications.

“We are pouring resources into additional training to improve our quality program as well as leadership and management training,” said Carl. “It is important to put some emphasis there for the future of the company,” he said.

Power Magnetics, Inc. is also converting to a new ERP system and continuing to move to automate some of its systems to enhance its customer service and responsiveness, already well respected in the industry.

Cores: Power Magnetics produces our cores using grain oriented silicon steel from grades M2 to M19. Premade cores of EI and UI laminations, C and DG cores are also available.

Windings: aluminum and copper are standard, the latter used when size and performance are the design drivers. Winding may be in sheet or wire and are produced on either semi-automatic or manual winding machines depending on the volume.

Enclosures: Power Magnetics has a line of custom designed NEMA 1 and NEMA 3R (outdoor) enclosures with ANSI 61 gray power coat paint finish. Stainless steel enclosures can be custom ordered.

Finishing: Operations include varnish, using our atmospheric dip tank, a large VPI chamber and curing in gas fired bake out ovens.

Testing: Complete electrical testing lab for high power testing. C of C (Certificates of Compliance) and test results can be requested at the time the order is placed.
