Minimization of eddy currents
Eddy currents may be minimized by laminating the block of metal, i.e., by making it up out of many very thin sheets or laminations. The planes to the magnetic flux, so that they cut across the eddy-current paths and thus reduces the eddy currents. Many ac machines, such as transformers and dynamos, have their magnetic parts made up of laminated sections.
