Small-size motor, units and modules

Let me explain about Nidec Sankyo's small motor products. The small motors developed by Nidec Sankyo are widely used in home appliances, housing equipment, office machines, smartphones, personal computers, servers, automobiles, etc. all over the world. We have a diverse and abundant lineup of brushless DC motors, stepping motors, geared motors, etc. We mass-produce precision and high-quality small motors at low cost and support the evolution of the world.

In addition to the motor itself, we also handle a large number of products that are unitized and modularized by combining resin molded products with the drive source of the motor.
Introducing the "twist type ice maker" from among the unit products.
This ice maker automatically rotates the ice tray when ice is formed. By hooking a part of the ice tray and turning it, the plastic ice tray containing ice is deformed. Then, a gap is created between the ice and the ice tray, and the ice falls into the ice making case. This ice machine consists of a motor, precision resin gears, a resin case, etc. Nidec Sankyo develops and manufactures all of them and delivers them to customers as a unit. This ice machine is made up of "Karakuri" technology that combines a motor and mechanical mechanism, which Nidec Sankyo specializes in.
In fact, Nidec Sankyo is the world's number one manufacturer of "Karakuri" units. This "Karakuri" supports the evolution of familiar electrical appliances. Introducing what kind of "Karakuri" unit is being developed and manufactured in addition to the ice machine.
