The superior magnetic and electric properties of 6.5 wt.% high silicon steel may improve efficiency and power density of electric machines. However, the brittleness due to the formation of B2 and D03 ordered phases make it difficult for the application of high silicon steel. These ordered phases can be fully or partially suppressed by rapid cooling. However, further study is needed to understand the effect of cooling rate on magnetic and mechanical properties. By tuning the melt spinning wheel speed from 1m/s to 30m/s, varying degrees of cooling rate were achieved. The obtained ribbons with various degree of ordering were tested for mechanical, magnetic and electrical properties. The correlation between the cooling rate, ordering, and physical properties are established.
