- Magnets and Applied Products
As a world-leading supplier of magnetic materials,
Hitachi Metals Group supports industry’sfoundations with its NEOMAX® brand
We boast an extensive magnet range, which includes NEOMAX® rare earth magnets and ferrite magnets, and provide our products across a wide range of fields, encompassing automobiles, electronics and home appliances. As pioneers in the field of magnetic materials, we take on the challenge of new materials and new production technologies, meeting our customers’ diverse needs and contributing to the creation of a more energy-efficient society.
NEOMAX® Nd-Fe-B Sintered Magnets
We are leading the way globally in manufacturing Nd-Fe-B sintered magnets, which have optimum magnetic properties for use in the drive motors of electric and hybrid vehicles. The NEOMAX®, which we developed and mass produce, can be used in a broad spectrum of applications and in environments that range from room temperature to the mercilessly high temperatures around engines.
Sintered Ferrite Magnet NMF™ Series
Ferrite magnets, which consist primarily of iron oxide, are cost effective and the most widely used in motors for automobile electric and electronic components. Among the NMF™ series, the series 15 has the world’s leading property as a mass-produced ferrite magnet. The excellent magnetic property and the resistance to temperature changes are suitable for a wide range of applications ranging from starter motors, power window motors, cooling fan motors, and electric power steering motors, to windshield wiper motors.
Ultrahigh Density Bonded Magnet HIDENSE™
The HIDENSE™ is a high-performance bonded magnet developed with the high-compression technology. This magnet is highly flexible in shape and magnetization and can be integrated with metal components, thus contributing to a wide range of product designs.
LTCC (Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramics) Substrate
High-integrated LTCC circuit substrates are available, which build on the unique technologies acquired through the efforts to develop RF front-end module. We offer a full package of services ranging from material development through circuit and millimeter-wave antenna designs. Our state-of-the-art technologies including mirror polishing that reduces micro wiring thickness down to 1 to 2 μm and bonding with silicone nitrate will help IoT innovations.
Ceramic Scintillator Materials
Scintillator materials absorb the energy of radiation that strikes them and emit it as visible light. Because of their high sensitivity and large X-ray absorption coefficients, they contribute to reductions in device sizes. They are used in X-ray CT scanners and other medical equipment as well as analytical devices.
