As a specialty manufacturer, we address the permanent magnet needs of the traveling wave tube (TWT), accelerometer, gyro, high speed (30,000 to 100,000 rpm) permanent magnet generator and motor, medical device, telecom, electric spacecraft propulsion and other industries that require high quality, high performance permanent magnets and/or systems.
Our accomplishments include technology leadership in the early commercial production of samarium cobalt 1:5 magnets, and later commercialized SmCo 2:17, followed by a new series of SmCo 2:17 magnets patented in 2002 from DOD SBIRs, which can operate at temperatures up to 550°C.
EEC offers the only temperature compensated magnets that have near-zero change in magnetic field over temperature.
For applications that require very low reversible temperature coefficient, such as inertial devices, we provide magnets with αT determined to parts-per-million accuracy where the change in Br per degree C is less than 0.001%.
We design many different types of magnetic subsystems for our customers, including traveling wave tube (TWT) stacks, rotors/motors, magnetic holding devices, permanent magnet field sources, and Hall Effect sensing subsystems.
We recently developed magnetic coupling systems for various applications, including the pharmaceutical industry.
As a fully integrated US supplier, we develop, produce, design and market custom samarium cobalt sintered permanent magnets, materials and magnet assemblies; as well as neodymium iron boron sintered and bonded permanent magnets, materials and magnet assemblies.
EEC has received 25 SBIRs and STTRs since 1996, including nine Phase II awards from NASA, DOE, NSF, EPA and DOD sponsors and one Phase III SBIR award.
We are designing and building through a NASA Phase II SBIR, a unique permanent magnetic bearing system that can operate at up to 1000 degrees F (523 C) with 500 pounds radial load capacity and 750 pounds axial load capacity while weighing only 50 pounds. These ultra-high temperature high-performance magnetic bearings can potentially be used in space-based power generators, jet engines, and turbomachinery.
EEC’s Finite Element Analysis (FEA) capabilities, based on our strong magnetic materials understanding as a magnet producer, are second to none. We understand how magnets perform and how they behave in real environments. This expertise allows us to make adjustments and changes so models are much more accurate.
We comply with specialty metals domestic sourcing preferences located in DFARS 252.225-7003, DFARS 252.225-7008 and DFARS 252.225-7009.
Our quality procedures and processes are certified to ISO 9001:2008 standards and ISO 9001:2008 and EN/JISQ/AS9100:2009.
