- NIDEC CORPORATION
- Supporting the Success of New Businesses -
The Nidec Corporation, a top manufacturer of small precision motors used in devices such as hard disk drives and CD-ROM drives, entered the automotive market with a mid-size motor for power steering in 2000.
The tool that facilitated their growth and success in a market the Nidec Corporation had little experience or knowledge was JMAG, an electromagnetic field analysis software from the JSOL Corporation. Less than 10 years have passed and the Nidec Corporation has grown to hold roughly 10% of the market share.
Mr. Hitoshi Inoue, head of development for the Nidec Corporation, and Mr.
Nakaba Kataoka discuss the merits of implementing the JMAG system.
- NIDEC SANKYO CORPORATION
- Gaining Market Share by using JMAG to Support Customers -
The Nidec Sankyo Corporation handles a wide range of products from robots to micro stepping motors. The Nidec Sankyo Corporation's products hold a share in the aggressive world market by providing products quickly to customers from the first contact of the sales team to the delivery of the product.
JMAG, simulation technology for electromechanical design, supports the speed as well as the development and design of their products.
Kiyoshi Miyazaki, Vice President of the Research & Development Headquarters, Tsuneo Sato, Assistant Manager of Research & Development, and Toshifumi Tsuruta, Assistant Manager of Research & Development, discuss their strategies for gaining a larger share of the world market, the merits of implementing JMAG, and the ways they utilize JMAG analyses.
Support for Induction Machines Coming Nov.12,2009
A JMAG-RT model accounting for the characteristics of brushless motors can now be generate by applying for a JMAG-Express license key that supports JMAG-RT models.
JMAG Version 10.0
- Using JMAG as a Design and Evaluation Tool -
JMAG ver. 10 was released on June 8, 2009. This version of JMAG has been developed with a focus on streamlining the workflow required to perform analyses. The speed with which an analysis can be performed is vital when designing and evaluating results. A vast amount of designs need to be evaluated by editing dimensions to attain the highest level of quality. This means that the number of designs that can be evaluated is directly connected to the quality of the design. New and improved functions have been implemented into JMAG ver. 10 to provide the most efficient design and evaluation process. This article introduces the major functions version 10 has to offer, that include but are not limited to, parametric analyses, analysis templates, as well as a scripting function.

- [Efficiency Analysis of an IPM Motor]
- [Superimposed Direct Current Characteristic Analysis of a Reactor]
The Application Notes guide users inexperienced in analysis software, or experienced users that want to explore new fields using simulations, through a smooth analysis process.
Technical Report Vol.1
A Powerful Simulation Engine
- Why is a high-speed calculation engine necessary? -
In recent years, the needs of engineers are diversifying as computer aided engineering (CAE) tools are applied more regularly when designing electromagnetic devices. JMAG answers the diversifying needs of our users by enhancing technical development and functionality.
This technical report introduces the scope of JMAG's technological development. For this first issue, we raise the question of why a high-speed calculation engine is necessary and address the various ways a matrix solver has been integrated into JMAG.
