Make Longer-life Products

Servers, which are the heart of the internet, and the equipment of mobile phone base stations are required never to stop functioning. For equipment that should be replaced with a new unit as less frequently as possible, it is important to extend the life of cooling fans. Of course, motors that rotate fans must never stop, either. Brushless motors, which do not require mechanical contact during current switchover, successfully became free of electrode ablation – acritical problem with conventional brushed motors – and eliminated the needs for maintenance. Yet, that does not mean that there is a zero chance for equipment malfunction. We at Nidec aim to reduce load on motors to the absolute minimum. Our relentless pursuit of the goal supports the stable operation of the communications infrastructure.

Nidec’s Solutions with Long-life Products

Helium-Filled Hard Disk Drives

HDDs filled with helium have improved read/write precision and lower power-consumption due to minimized disk vibration caused by drag.

Pushing the Limits of Miniaturization with our Ultra-Thin & Ultra-Small Fans

Less than 3-mm thick and with 20-mm sides—our ultra-compact cooling fans are a result of cutting-edge design and state-of-the-art analysis and manufacturing technology.

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.

Nidec’s Technology to Create Long-life Products

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.

Traction Drive’s Noise Reduction Technology

Realizing automatic guided vehicles for silence-required places

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.
