1

Cowl louvers

Cowl louvers play as special roll by directing outside air into the cabin while keeping debris out. CAE is now being used to design the cowls with safety in mind in order to protect pedestrians.

2

Battery trays

Products that fix batteries in place in the vehicle. The use of composite materials has made weight reductions possible while ensuring a high standard of rigidity, heat resistance, and impact resistance.

3

Oil Separator

Component that separates out the oil mist contained in unburnt gas inside the engine crank case, helping to improve fuel consumption. With new separation technology, we have achieved improved separation performance and made this product smaller and lighter.

4

V-ribbed pulleys

Combined with a belt, these products transmit power from the engine to the exhaust and air intake systems. The shaping process called “rolling” presses the metal to form the V-shaped groove.

5

Oil Strainer

Functions as a filter for engine oil. Attached to the oil pump inlet.

6

Turbo Tube

Pipe that connects turbo compressor, intercooler and throttle body to deliver turbo-compressed air into the engine. Components that require strength, durability and heat-resistance are primarily manufactured with super engineering plastics.

7

Balancer

Component that is incorporated in FWD 8-speed Automatic Transmission, which concept is improvement of vehicle performance and fuel economy. It is processed with Plate Forging Press Machine and cutting.

8

Lower absorber

These absorb the force of impact from a collision with a pedestrian to protect the pedestrian’s legs. High-accuracy CAE analysis was used to eliminate the need to create a prototype. This has been highly evaluated by the manufacturing industry (awarded the “Super” Monozukuri Component Award by the Center for the Promotion of MONOZUKURI/Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun).

9

Over fenders

This is an exterior component that is attached to the body. These are manufactured using painting technology that achieves the same level of painting quality as that of the body.

10

Fender liners

These are large components that function mainly to deflect mud. Recently, they are also being developed with good sound absorbing materials to keep noise out of the cabin.

11

Rocker Molding

Component attached to the side of the vehicle. Proprietary painting methods used to accommodate a variety of preferences in color design.

12

Floor covers

These components guide the air flow under the vehicle body to lower its air resistance and thus contribute to greatly increasing vehicle fuel efficiency.

13

Exhaust and drainage pipes for FCVs

Component equivalent to the exhaust pipe of a gasoline vehicle, discharging water and air generated in the generation of electricity outside the vehicle. They are also fitted with a noise muffling function for added cabin comfort.

14

Battery Case

Plastic case for nickel-hydrogen rechargeable batteries that supply power to drive motors.

15

End plate

A component of the battery pack equipped in electric vehicles. It is a high-strength, high-rigidity component that is required to efficiently mount a battery that expands and contracts on a vehicle.

16

Cell separator

A component of the battery pack equipped in HEV, MHEV, PHEV and BEV that use lithium-ion batteries. It is placed in between the batteries and not only has an insulating effect, but also contributes to improved performance as a battery module.

17

Smoke exhaust cover

This is a safety product mounted on top of battery module that discharges the gas and heat generated from the battery outside the vehicle in the event of an abnormality.

18

Collision prevention part (intermediate mount)

This product has the role of protecting the battery in the event of a vehicle collision.

19

Water-cooling cooler

A product is installed in the underfloor of the vehicle that has the role of controlling battery temperature and preventing degradation. This product, jointly developed with a partner company in China, cools the battery evenly by running cooling water through the channel within the product.

20

Clips and Clamp

Products in the special area of plastic fasteners for automobiles. Used in vehicle interiors and exteriors.
