Make Quieter Products

Nidec is home to hydrodynamics researchers, who design airflow inside PCs and gaming machines. To cool substrates, which are becoming increasingly high-performance and prone to accumulating heat, there is need for more airflow for cooling fans. Still, instead of making noisy fans, our researchers use their creative force on fans’ shapes and airflow to reduce noise to the best extent possible. To reduce the noise from motors themselves, the researchers apply current of a specific phase in drive control systems to eliminate vibration. To us, the ideal state is where users do not feel that there are any motors in their products.
