KOLEKTOR MOBILITY is one of the leading companies worldwide for the production of polymer bonded magnets.
The product portfolio of polymer bonded magnets includes SmFeN, NdFeB, hybrid magnets and complete assemblies produced by the facility in Slovenia, with an excellent track record as the primary polymer bonded magnets producer in Europe, and also as a global supplier, utilising widely spread network in Europe, USA, and in Asia. The core of the operations comprises research and development, production and marketing of permanent magnets, and the production of complex systems.
KOLEKTOR is engaged with its partners in the use of polymer bonded parts in electrical motors for various purposes including electric power tools, household appliances and automotive industry. KOLEKTOR will play a key role in making an assessment of suitability of using recycled powder for entry into manufacturing process for polymer bonded magnets. Production of sample magnets in a variety of forms for analysis of key performance indicators will also be important to enable high quality dissemination of the results to peers or of Tier 1 suppliers.
