The words “Electrical Steel and Transformer Core Design” are overlayed on the top center of the image and Corefficient’s official logo is in the lower left corner.

Transformer core designs have been in a constant state of evolution and refinement since the inception of the first step-down transformer in 1878. Expanding upon this simple iron ring with copper wiring paved the way for an electrical apparatus which is indispensable to modern economies of today. Corefficient specializes in the modern-day transformer, working to assist its customers with designs that optimize electrical efficiency, physical space, thermal requirements, and cost. Transformer core manufacturing is tailored to customer requirements and meets a wide variety of customer end-use applications.

As times have changed, there has been a shift from developing the biggest and most capable transformer cores to focus on meeting specific customer needs. Today’s D.O.E. efficiency standards require designs meet and, often times, exceed core loss expectations. Meeting these standards challenges companies to evaluate existing designs and upgrade or reduce the electrical losses within their designs to create energy efficient cores.

The big question is: how do you achieve the mandated efficiency for a transformer that meets the power requirements, electrical standards, physical space constraints, heat rise requirements, all while providing a cost-effective product in the marketplace? For us, the answer is simple. Core design

Corefficient has electrical engineers anticipating all these variables for its customers. Once the design is settled, Corefficient has the proven experience to translate a customer’s core design through the coil cutting, lamination assembly, no-load testing, packaging, and delivery services. We pride ourselves on bringing high expectations to reality. Our experience ensures that a customer’s design requirement is obtained by utilizing the optimal grade of electrical steel. Through cutting and construction, we minimize destruction factors providing a finished transformer core design that meets and exceeds customer specifications.

Gone are the days of one size fits all. With electrical transformers at the forefront of core design, our consumers are looking for a reliable product with quality in mind. That is why we test every single transformer to confirm customer specifications of efficiency, design, and electrical standards. The testing allows the quality assurance guarantee.

Corefficient houses a wide inventory of steel grades due to the proximity of their parent company, located near their state-of-the-art facility in Monterrey, Mexico. This local proximity provides clients with some of the shortest lead times in the industry to meet their needs.

Since our inception, Corefficient has taken pride in energy innovation – committed to adding value to their transformer core products. Combining experience and success in the fields of transformer core engineering, transformer core design, magnetic core expertise, and – most importantly – customer service.
