Title Spherical particles of Fe base metallic glass alloy, Fe base sintered alloy soft magnetic material in bulk form produced by sintering the same, and method for their production
Abstract (US7622011)
Disclosed is a Fe-Ga-P-C-B-Si based metallic glass alloy particle prepared by a gas atomizing process, which has an approximately complete spherical shape, a relatively large particle size and a high crystallization temperature (Tx).
The plurality of particles may be subjected to a spark plasma sintering process at the crystallization temperature or less under a compression pressure of 200 MPa or more, to provide a bulk Fe-based sintered metal soft magnetic material of metallic glass, which has a high density, a single phase structure of metallic glass in an as-sintered state, excellent soft magnetic characteristics applicable to a core of a magnetic head, a transformer or a motor, and a high specific resistance.
Scope of claims [claim1]
