Make Lighter Products

Drone, electric bicycles, EVs, electrically assisted bikes – Lightness directly affects mobility products’ driving performance.
For vacuum cleaners and hair dryers, too, lightness is an important factor that reduces burden on their bodies. Being light is critical for motors that are installed in these products. At Nidec, we thoroughly search for lighter materials for our products’ components. If a material is hard to process, we even create a new way to process it. We develop small but strong magnets for size reduction. Such relentless search for ideal products draws us closer to the future of mobility products and home appliances.

Nidec’s Solutions with Light Products

Motor For Cleaning Robot

Nidec provides highly efficient, small and light, low-noise and long-life motors. In addition, we are ready to offer design work up to the point where the motor is connected to the wheel. Motors inclusive of the unit design are available for customers.

Integrated units for hair dryers combining brushless DC motors with AC-DC power supply circuits.

By replacing universal motors with Nidec's brushless DC motors, hair dryers can be made significantly smaller and lighter.
