Backgound

In March 2020 the outlook for Makita is continued market growth. Dividends to shareholders has risen by 30% in twelve months.

The outcomes have differed from the forecasts. The Japanese economy has displayed increasing signs of slowing in the first nine months of the year ended 31 March 2020, with market sentiences weakening because of the rising uncertainty, including the Pandemic, US-China trade tensions, changes around Brexit and the instability in the Middle East.

During the same time last year, the combined revenue rose by 1.7 percent to 373,261 million yen owing primarily to good sales in Japan, while the volume of overseas revenues declined when converted into yen.

Sales in Japan rose 11.7% to 75.026 million yen. This is due to increasing demand for highly functional cordless devices, a lack of work on building sites and good sales of wireless gardening equipment.

Exports in Europe increased 3.1 percent to 163,068 million yen in spite of a decline in volume of exports caused by an improvement of the yen relative to Euro, helped by the high demand for equipment in almost all areas and steady sales of cordless gardening equipment.

The consequence of a lenient housing market in Australia reduced sales in Oceania by 5.1% to 21.695 million yen.

Makita’s headquarters and its major sales, manufacturing and R&D bases are located in Japan, and its procurement, manufacturing, sales and product development site are located worldwide. These sites are connected globally through an operational network.

Makita boasts the world’s largest 18v tool and industrial accessory lineup. They are a trusted brand with over 100 years of proven design, reliability and quality in power tools and products for the building and construction, gardening and outdoor user.

Battery Technology

Makita 18v Lithium-Ion batteries are available in 1.5Ah, 3Ah, 4Ah, 5Ah and 6Ah variations. the batteries are lightweight using fewer cells than other brands. In fact, a 6Ah 18v battery can weigh as little as half some competitors 6Ah batteries.

Star Protection is included with all 18v Batteries as indicated by the Star symbol on the battery. This is the inbuilt computer system in the battery that improves performance and battery life. It communicates with the charger during charging to improve charge time and protects your tools and batteries from overload, over-discharge and overheating.

Makita 18v batteries feature a fuel gauge that easily shows the user how much life is left in the battery before requiring to be recharged. They have built-in shock absorption to prolong their life, vents to keep them cool whilst still blocking out dust and debris.

Build In Memory Chip / CPU
chip_1 battery_charger Makita 18V
The built-in memory chip in battery records the battery usage history and transmits it to the charger. The CPU built in charger analyzes its condition; high temperature, re-charge after full charged, over-discharging. The battery lasts long life because it can be charged at the best method and time.

1. It is designed that an individual cell whose condition is fully discharged, works well. It is hard to have over-discharge and an overcharge because the individual cell capacity prevent the inconsistency.

2. It is possible to use it efficiency because the capacity of each cell is not uneven and discharges evenly.

1. Competitor charging system causes to decrease the capacity of the cell, which weakened by the heavy load work because Competitors do not install an optimum charge.

2. Discharge stops by using the capacity of the weakened cell completely, when you use the power tool in the condition, noted as above.
Therefore the capacities of other cells are not used completely, so that workloads are decreased at a charge.

Fast Charging with Cooling FanMakita 18V.

It is necessary to cool down the battery which is high temperature after use. MAKITA has developed the original charger system; Built-in the cooling fan. The stand-by time until the charge starts is greatly shortened by cooling efficiently. In addition, the charger keeps cooling while charging it, and the rapid charge is achieved.

Conclusion

Makita has come with a technology that puts circuits into batteries. The circuits continually monitor the performance of the batteries so as to prevent overheating, overloading and over-discharging. When sensors detect danger in the system, they kick in immediately thereby protecting the tool from any damage. The system can enable your battery to last for a long time.

To put the icing on the cake, the charger is fitted with LXT rapid optimum technology for faster charging. This means that you will not have to halt your project for a long time so as to recharge the battery.
