HUMMINGBIRD™

Biomimetic flapping fan

Introducing

Hummingbird™

Inspired by the unique axial movement found in a Hummingbird’s wing. Our patented design outperforms the North American hummingbird with over 57 flaps per second, generating highly efficient air displacement. The Hummingbird can be driven by either a piezoelectric or electromagnetic engine.

Hummingbird™ Electromagnetic

Key advantages

While electromagnetic Hummingbird™ shares some common advantages with the piezoelectric one, it has its own unique advantages

fan air flow

IP65

No moving parts. Water and dust proof

Fan efficiency

Salt fog & chemical resistant

Made of materials that are inner to most of chemicals

Fan form factor

Supports multiple form factors

Can be customed to have different sizes and aspect ratios conveniently

Applications

The unique benefits of our biomimetic fans open up a range of new possibilities when approaching cooling requirements. Some industries with sophisticated cooling requirements include:

Industrial
Suitable for extreme environmental situations such as dusty and chemical exposed ones.
Outdoor
Being IP65 and salt fog resistant the fan can be used for outdoor applications such as high power LED light.
