Welding the E and I lams together at the edges proves not to cause
unacceptable losses. The welds have rather a small cross-section and a
high resistivity. In fact, because the welds are made with the E and I
blocks pressed tightly together, losses due to the air-gap are
minimised. Performance is comparable with that achieved with interleaved
core stacking, which is a time-consuming process, even when automated.
