Metglas® amorphous metal material is the earth-friendly
high-technology material for distribution transformers that
can reduce no-load loss (standby electricity) in distribution
transformers to about one-third the level compared to
those using grain-oriented electrical steel.
Hitachi Metals supplies this material in wide ribbon forms (142 mm, 170 mm, and 213 mm) suitable for distribution transformer core manufacturing. Newly developed Metglas® amorphous metal material 2605HB1M has been introduced. Distribution transformers using 2605HB1M show lower size, lower weight, and lower audible noise compared to those using 2605SA1.
