Title: Kohei Minato: Magnet Motor in production
Post by: zark on June 15, 2005, 12:11:28 PM
Kohei Minato and the Japan Magnetic Fan Company:
http://www.rexresearch.com/minato/minato.htm
This link has the details from two patent applications that describe how Minato's motor works.

Quotes from the above URL :
"They've just sold 40,000 units to a major convenience store chain. Now will you see it?"
In Japan, no one pays for 40,000 convenience store cooling fans without being reasonably sure that they are going to work.
[..] Minato's motors consume just 20 percent or less of the power of conventional motors with the same torque and horse power. They run cool to the touch and produce almost no acoustic or electrical noise. They are significantly safer and cheaper (in terms of power consumed), and they are sounder environmentally.

From my memory of the motor is that there are two key features to making it work:
* the angle of the permanent magnets (M) to the stator electromagnet (M') (see FIG. 6 in US Patent # 5,594,289)
* the pulsing of the stator electromagnet (M')

I searched the entire forum for 'minato' and found nothing. I was a bit surprised.. is it a rehash of existing inventions?

I'm a newbie on this kind of stuff, so go easy on me if it turns out to be rubbish :-)

And another picture of the motor. The two important features on the diagram are:
a) the driving stator electromagnets: top electromagnet (labelled 12) and the bottom electromagnet (labelled 14)
b) the permanent magnets which are labelled 6 and 12

Here is a page with links to useful information on this motor, including reports of 'home powering units' being built in america and japan. Actually I have heard of someone in Australia who is also buildiing these..

hi there, i was reading before some days this:
http://www.sax.de/~stalker/pad/199801/

i was special interested in the "Takahashi-Motor":
(http://www.sax.de/~stalker/pad/199801/v019.jpg)

seems to me like the same principle - but i did not found more stuff and information about it. Maybe the name in this article is wrong (Yasunori Takahashi) and they mean Kohei Minato.
Btw. i think kind of shielding is the most interesting way to get some kinetic work from magnetic energy - thats why iam very interested in those stuffs especially in wizkycho's RPMM - because it might produce much more power than Minato's Motor - i hope i can test some of these concepts next months personally ...

problem is complexity of design and at my scale it reaches 90%.

Yes, his motor does look like a variation of the 'Takahashi-Motor' you posted. Minato says that his motors reach 330% efficiency on average.

Ok I just took a look at that german site (sax.de/~stalker) .. I am now quite convinced that the 'minato engine' is just an improvement on Takahashi's motor.

Does anyone know what has become of Mr. Minato? Last time I saw him was in December 2006 in Tokyo. He told me he was moving out of the country to another country that was sponsoring a manufacturing facility for him (I won't say where to protect his privacy because I consider myself to be a casual friend). If anyone knows his whereabouts and if he is in production, I would appreciate the news.
Thanks!

Absolutely not. Yasunori Takahashi is the man behind the Betamax video
system and gave us neodymium magnets (by mistake, apparently). He is
a serious scientific hitter, and I heard a story that he did not patent this
device becasue he saw it as too similar to the Minato motor.

Sorry, I removed my message; didn't realize the thread was 2 years old.

well..if it is sold..there must be PROOF that it is working? so that someone CAN reproduce  it and get same restult?

Congratulations.   You are the very last person on the entire internet to have seen Mr. Minato so far as I can figure.

Was it Ireland, btw, that he was heading for?

Do you know any of his family or work partners at all?  If I knew Japanese, I'd try contacting his company just to see if he's okay.  Having such a low profile is very dangerous for people like him, as they can be vanished without anybody noticing.

I would make a strong effort to find him, if I were you, as it sounds like you have more leads than anybody else, and I would try to convince him to maintain a much higher profile.

Best of luck.  Please reply if you find anything.  Thank-you!

Still camping out on the internet looking for Mr. Minato. Last time I saw him he said he was moving to New Zeland. I have sent him e-mails with no reply. So I am now fearing the worst. Let's all say a prayer for the well being of this hard working man and his beautiful family. If anyone knows where he is please e-mail me at leefloydiii@gmail.com Thanks!

You should look at the motor of Charles Flynn and that of Robert Adams
