Nidec Sankyo Corporation (“Nidec Sankyo”) announced today that it has successfully developed a new, slim-type automatic open-close unit for toilet lids and seats.

Nidec Sankyo’s new automatic open-close unit for toilet lids and seats

Year by year, the needs for non-contact products, ranging from faucets to toilet lids, are growing amid the rising necessity to prevent virus infections. The above product, a motor unit that opens and closes toilet lids and seats automatically, will be installed on their hinge parts.

This latest product by Nidec Sankyo was developed based on a newly revised design of its gear and other structures, to achieve a cubical content 25% less than conventional models while maintaining the same output as theirs. This product, which increases freedom in designing, enables the creation of highly stylish, flat-surface and compact toilets – products popular especially in China – and downsizing of toilets themselves.

As a member of the world’s leading comprehensive motor manufacturer, Nidec Sankyo stays committed to proposing revolutionary solutions that contribute to creating a comfortable society

For inquiries on the above product, please contact Nidec Sankyo’s Sales Department 1 (Tel.: +81-3-5740-3001). Thank you.

On April 1, 2023, Nidec Sankyo Corporation will be renamed Nidec Instruments Corporation.
