Nidec's Technical Capabilities

This topic introduces Nidec's primary technologies such as the Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB) technology, brushless motors, F5B, HDD motors, and DCT motors.

Solutions Centered on Brushless DC Motors

Optimally designed modules combining motors with fans, blowers, pumps, gears and controllers

The Advanced CAE Technology behind our Optimally Designed Modules and Units

Coupled analysis and other advanced CAE tools cut down on development times and make development of advanced modules and units easier.

The Servo Technology
of the Future

Completely new servo technology with support for control systems of unprecedented scale and precision.

Submicron-Precision Machining Technology

High-precision machining technology, one of the core technologies of the Nidec group, has played an important role in our success story in the HDD motor market.

CAE Technology Developed
In-House

At Nidec, we utilize original modeling technology and analysis software developed in-house to optimize the design of our fluid dynamic bearings.

Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB)
Technology

Nidec quickly began developing and manufacturing fluid dynamic bearings (FDBs), which are dramatically accelerating the increase in HDD capacity and noise reduction. We are pioneers in mass production of HDD spindle motors that use FDBs.

Brushless Motors

Nidec has a significant amount of experience in producing brushless DC motors featuring energy saving, long life, low noise, compact size and light weight.

F5B Electric Glider Competition

Nidec is challenging the limits of compact, high output, and high efficiency motors in F5B, the world's premier motor glider competition. In addition, Nidec conducts a range of research and development based on the experience in the F5B competition.

Thinner HDD Motor Design

As notebook PCs become thinner, the profile of HDD motors is also becoming lower. Nidec also supports the evolution of notebook PCs by producing thinner motors.

DCT Motors

Nidec develops and manufacturers superior DCT motors and contributes to improving the environmental performance of automobiles.
