Live Webinar - “Producing with Quality”; The Nidec Global Appliance Story - Nov 17, 2PM ET
Staying competitive in a globalized world goes far deeper than the “next best thing.” For Nidec Global Appliance, driving energy-efficient refrigeration solutions has made them a globally formidable force, providing excellence in food preservation with a diverse portfolio addressing real customer challenges.

In 1971 in Joinville, Brazil, Embraco began production of their globally recognized hermetic compressors. Recognized for delivering innovative, high-performance, and energy-efficient products and services, Embraco is a pioneer in developing solutions that revolutionize the refrigeration market. In 2019, Embraco was bought by Nidec Corporation and became part of one of the biggest motors producing groups. Because of that, the company changed the name for Nidec Global Appliance and Embraco continues to be a brand product.

As regulations for energy efficient products strengthen around the world, Nidec Global Appliance has embarked on a digital transformation journey enabling them to increase their time to market, quality, and maximize the efficiency of their internal processes. Integral to this digital transformation is PTC’s Windchill PLM solution.

In this webinar, you will learn about Nidec Global Appliance’s journey of implementing PTC’s Windchill, improving their product development process, managing changes to their internal culture, and ultimately delivering on their mission to provide innovative solutions for a better quality of life:

  • Challenges of a globally enterprise with massive numbers of products to produce
  • The Solution – Implement quality across the entire organization starting in engineering
  • The Result – Cost of non-quality reduced by 40%; Time to Market Decreased by 30%
  • The Future – Extending the digital thread into the factory
