About ESSIAL: ESSIAL is a research project funded by the European Commission “Factory of the Future” programme. The ambition of the project is to use laser surface texturizing (laser scribing, irradiation, texturizing, …) on soft ferromagnetic materials, such as usual electrical steels and special alloys, in order to improve the performance and functionalities of laminated magnetic circuits.
