Choosing a Brushless Motor Manufacturer

If you're interested in buying new brushless motors for your applications, you're probably wondering where to start looking. The best place to start is with a great brushless motor manufacturer. What defines a great brushless motor manufacturer? There are a number of factors to consider.

First, What Is a Brushless Motor?

Before you start seriously thinking about which brushless motor manufacturer to choose, it's important to understand what a brushless motor is. A brushless motor is a motor that is electronically commutated. That is to say, unlike a conventional brush motor that is turned with a commutator that makes contact with special points known as brushes, a brushless motor uses electricity to power magnets that turn the motor with no need for brush contact.

The main advantage to this type of motor is that a motor that does not have a commutator or brushes has fewer parts that can wear out or become damaged and need to be replaced. In addition, the sparks and noise created when the commutator comes into contact with the brushes are eliminated. Brushless motors are becoming an increasingly popular option for those with motor needs, since they can do anything a brush motor can do but they last longer and tend to be more reliable. This provides some insight as to why it is so important to find the right brushless motor manufacturer. It defeats the purpose of paying a little more for your motor to have long life and reliability if the workmanship is not top-of-the-line. Good brushless motors from the right brushless motor manufacturer can save a company thousands, tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars over the long haul.

What to Look for in a Brushless Motor Manufacturer

The first thing to look for is the manufacturer's engineering experience. A great motor starts with a great engineer, and NMB, as part of Minebea Group Company, has some of the finest engineers in the world. Our engineers work to design not just all sorts of motors but also fans, custom fan trays, and precision ball bearings. When it comes to motors, you can be sure that NMB, with facilities and R&D in Japan and Germany as well as the United States, has engineers who are ready to answer any questions you may have and to meet virtually any motor-design challenge.

The second factor you may be considering in looking for a brushless motor manufacturer is the quality of the parts used. NMB produces the majority of its motor components in-house. This means that NMB can assure quality and supply at a level that other brushless motor manufacturers cannot. It also means NMB has the opportunity to provide a wide range of both standard and custom-designed motors.

Finally, you want your brushless motor manufacturer to be able to provide the selection of quality motors that you need at a reasonable cost. At you'll find a terrific range of motors; we offer not only brushless motors but also brush DC motors, hybrid motors, PM motors, and more at a cost that will fit in with almost any budget.

Why NMB Is the Right Brushless Motor Manufacturer for You

When you choose NMB to provide your motor products, you are getting not only great quality and selection at a reasonable price, but you are also working with a company that cares about the environment. Minebea has been disclosing its environmental protection efforts with Environmental Reports since 2003, long before it became fashionable for companies to be environmentally conscious. Our environmental protection efforts include adhering to green procurement guidelines and complying with restrictions on the use and management of hazardous materials as well as prioritizing parts suppliers that offer environmentally friendly materials and take positive steps towards protecting the environment.
