The zero magnetostriction is an interesting property for the development of magnetic devices, such as flux gate sensor in order to produce sensors with lower noise levels. In addition, plates used in power transformers cores also require to have low magnetostriction values, to reduce noise and consequent heating, which may ultimately reduce the lifetime of the equipment. Within applications involving power supplies, transformers are strategic and more than ever, depending on the location of these, the reduction of environmental noise has become crucially important. The limited spaces of cities and strict noise control laws require extra efforts to build power transformers.The most commonly used material in applications that require low magnetostriction is based on Fe-Si alloys. The Fe-Ti has magnetostrictive behavior very similar to that of Fe-Si, as in magnitude either the change with the composition. However, the maximum values of magnetostriction, even before saturation is the responsible for the noise generated in electrical machines. Further, it is important to know both the longitudinal magnetostriction as to cross depending on the configuration of the core of such machines. In this work we will produce Fe-Ti alloys containing 3.0% and 4.0 mass% of Ti in arc furnace and then proceed to the rolling of the material. The rolling is carried out in several steps. The early rolling steps will be hot, intermediate stages warm and one or two final steps cold (room temperature) with subsequent heat treatment after the last cold rolling step. The electrical and magnetic properties will be evaluated and compared with the commercial Fe-Si. (AU)
