Differences in the cold and hot pressing processes of molded inductors.-GOTREND



1、What is an molded inductor?

Molded inductor (Molding Choke) consists of a base and a winding body. The base embeds the winding body in metal magnetic powder through pressure casting. SMD pins are directly formed on the surface of the base as leads for the winding body (as shown in Figure 1).

2、Features and advantages of molded inductor 

Molded inductors, due to their superior stability, possess the following characteristics: miniaturization, high quality, high energy storage, and low resistance.

 

2.1 Performance and stability 
Compared with conventional chip inductors, molded inductor have excellent resistance to large currents and high temperatures, and their stability in circuits is also outstanding. Compared with ordinary traditional assembled chip inductors, it has better reliability and stability, and is widely used in security, automotive, medical, aerospace and other high-tech fields.



2.2  Structural construction 
Molded inductor is made of metal powder pressing, and the structure is simple, suitable for automated production. The coil is fully enclosed and closed-circuit design, which can meet the diverse needs of customers.



2.3 Technology and price 
The workmanship of molded inductor is much more complex than that of traditional chip inductors, so the product yield rate is lower than that of traditional chip inductors, so its price is higher than that of traditional chip inductors. 
However, with the continuous improvement of molded inductor production and R&D technology and the continuous upgrading of automation equipment, the price of molded inductor will become lower and lower, and it has gradually become the first choice of mainstream customers.




3、Process description of molded inductor  

At present, there are two mainstream process processes for molded inductor : cold pressing process and hot pressing process.



3.1 Cold pressing process : 
The early mainstream process as an molded inductor currently mainly appears on large-size molded inductors, which have the advantages of mature process, stable equipment and high production efficiency.

3.2 Hot pressing process : 
With the increasing demand for inductor miniaturization in the market, the molded inductor process is also developing in the direction of small size, but the traditional cold process has certain limitations in the small size process, and the introduction of hot pressing process solves the problem of integral miniaturization.
