Advanced Materials & Components

Advanced Materials & Components

As providers of advanced services and cutting-edge technology to a diverse range of industrial and commercial set-ups, Hitachi manufactures industry-leading advanced functional materials and components that are used by automotive, digital video, communications, broadcast, TV, and renewable energy product manufacturers.

From manufacturing individual components to complete solutions, our offerings range from hard disk manufacturing equipment to amorphous metal distribution transformers as well as nanocrystalline foils and high-temperature resistant materials, which has led to the extensive market-driven functional materials portfolio we have today.

Rolls & Sensors

Rolls & Sensors

As the leading roll-maker in Japan, Hitachi supplies to more than one-third of the Japanese market. In North America, our vendors are responsible for supplying steel to more than 90 percent of all steelmakers.

We have also worked on developing Magneto-resistive (MR) and giant magneto-resistive (GMR) sensors which can assist the market in harnessing the real potential of wind energy. Our customized MR and GMR encoder sensors offer high magnetic sensitivity that is useful in controlling the direction and speed of the turbine in wind powered systems.

Magnets
