Nidec Corporation has recently announced that the global sales of E-Axles, the traction motor systems that the Company develops, produces, and sells, have reached 100,000 units and systems.

Nidec’s E-Axles are characterized by being compact and light-weight as a result of their fully integrated designs that combine motors, inverters and gears. In addition to the Ni150Ex 150 kW model that became the first fully integrated traction motor system of its kind in the world designed by a supplier to enter mass-production in April 2019, Nidec has also developed four other models: Ni200Ex (200 kW), Ni100Ex (100 kW), Ni70Ex (70 kW) and Ni50Ex (50 kW). Armed with this world-class comprehensive lineup, Nidec is capable of supplying traction motor systems that can power an estimated 98% of all electric passenger vehicles. Nidec has set a target of achieving 40 - 45% global market share in the EV traction motor market by 2030, and the E-Axles will serve as an engine of this effort.

As Europe, China and many other countries in the world announce a ban on selling new gasoline vehicles to take effect in 2025 – 2040, Nidec stays committed to developing products based on its technology to make light, thin, short and compact products and improve products’ efficiency and control performance. With these technologies that it has been fostering as the world’s leading comprehensive motor manufacturer, Nidec is poised to provide, at a massive pace, revolutionary solutions that contribute to the evolution of automobiles and CO2 reduction.

Having a workforce that’s well trained on current technologies and equipment is critical for any manufacturer. When workers lack necessary skill sets, they are more likely to make expensive mistakes that result in costly downtime. Without proper training, employees are also less productive and have lower job satisfaction. They often feel as though they aren’t moving forward in their career and get discouraged. In addition, the correlation between well-trained workers and a safer manufacturing environment shouldn’t be overlooked.

Clearly, the importance of industrial training must be a key consideration for employers. Unfortunately, developing a workforce with necessary knowledge isn’t always easy. A variety of factors are creating a serious skills gap, and many companies are struggling to find ways to address the challenges.

What drives the requirement for accurate, high-quality labels? With so much hanging in the balance for manufacturers and retailers competing on a global scale, there's no good reason to ignore the need for label quality. Mislabeled packaging could have consequences that range from wasted product to (potentially severe) consumer health issues.

Let's take a look at four major areas that illustrate the importance of ensuring the accuracy and legibility of product and packaging labels and discuss a solution that can help avoid errors.

Area 1: General product traceability

Product traceability, in a general sense, is essential for consumer safety, regulatory compliance and overall quality perception. If there’s a problem with a product, traceability allows the consumer, retailer or another entity to quickly locate and segregate defective products in the event of a recall.
