Capacitors for future-oriented applications

 Expertise Product 1

 Expertise Product 3

TDK Málaga designs and manufactures a wide range of metallized film capacitors, that means specific power capacitors for future-oriented applications such as traction, solar and wind energy, industrial drives and power transmission.

For the development of the capacitors, the engineers combine different technologies and design rules that allow the component to adapt to the different requirements to fulfill its role as DC-Link, DC filter or AC filter.

Among the main applications of metallized film capacitors, there is power distribution such as HVDC VSC (High-Voltage Direct Current, Voltage Source Converter) and Statcom and traction for subways, large industrial vehicles, trams, locomotives and Electric Multiple Units. The components are also used in wind power applications, photovoltaic systems and industrial drives.

Working with i4.0 technologies

Industry 4.0 plays an important role at the site. Among other things, the factory uses connected analytical and control mechanisms in real time for the very complex process of film metallization.

The site also works with digital mirrors as virtual images of real existing machines. This makes it possible to improve production processes or set up new production facilities. The Data Science Center at the site supports specific digitalization projects across the company’s worldwide facilities. Its focus is on systems that enable predictions to be made about the future, self-learning and self-regulating systems as well as intelligent monitoring processes.

Environmentally conscious production

 Expertise Environment

The site is continuously striving to reduce its carbon footprint. It manufactures with electricity from 100 percent renewable energy sources. In addition, its own photovoltaic system on the roof generates around 90 megawatt hours of solar power per year. Both measures together have led to a reduction in CO2 emissions of around 95 percent.
