The engineering staff showed me how 3 fans, when configured correctly, would perform better in my chassis than the 4 fans I was purchasing, I got more airflow, less noise and saved money!


A lab full of fans, two Design Engineers and an acoustic chamber, what else could you ask for, thank you Sanyo Denki.


I flew in from Denver with several engineers and two of my chassis. One week later Greg Tamashiro had helped us optimize our designs and increase our airflow, he was a pleasure to work with and very knowledgeable.


We brought one of Sanyo Denki’s competitors fans to their lab to find out who had the quieter fan. Sanyo Denki tested both fans in their semi-anechoic chamber right in front of us. Before you ask, Sanyo Denki fan was not only quieter but also had better sound quality.

Technical Center Support Case 01:
Design 3D models and make a comparison of performance with different grille design
Airflow tester (PQ chamber)

Sanyo Denki America Technical Center has a capability of creating various 3D Models to simulate the performance.

Based on customer’s grille design, 3D models of slightly different versions were made to compare the performance, to see which scenario brings the performance.

The PQ characteristics were improved by changing the shape of the grille, so the power, sound, etc. can be minimized for the same amount of air flow.

Technical Center Support Case 02:
Selecting the Best Fan in a System
