lamination thickness versus eddy currents

Hi!
I could not find a formula to directly calculate the losses there. I found this pdf with a formula on page 7. Unfortunately in german, and with a pitfall for noninsiders: The losses are in Power per Weight. And of course the formula only fits to thin laminations compared to their width. http://neu.bucherhandel.de/media/bi... und Blech.pdf servus, Martin 





Not a half but a quarter of the original losses when halving the thickness.

So if I made stator plates out of some really thin shim stock, say .002" (.05mm, I think...), would the thinness make up for the lack of silicon (resistance)?
Good Luck!

Maybe I'm blind...but I can not find his email on the www.powercroco.de. Could the google translator have eaten it?!!
