The Standard Electrical Dictionary
The building up of an armature core or other thing out of plates. The cores of dynamo armatures or of alternating current converters are often laminated. Thus a drum armature core may consist of a quantity of thin iron discs, strung upon a rod and rigidly secured, either with or without paper insulation between the discs. If no paper is used the film of oxide on the iron is relied on for insulation. The object of lamination is to break up the electrical continuity of the core, so as to avoid Foucault currents. (See Currents, Foucault.) The laminations should be at right angles to the direction of the Foucault currents which would be produced, or in most cases should be at right angles to the active parts of the wire windings.
