2014 JSAE Automotive Engineering Exposition

Valve Sheet Inserts (sintered metal)

Piston Rings

Diamond Like Carbon coating (DLC coating) is widely used in the automotive market to achieve friction reduction on engine components.

Cylinder Liners

Dimple-Based Friction Optimized Surface Technology Liner

Micro-dimples are formed on the inner peripheral sliding surface of the cylinder liner, helping reduce the friction between piston rings and cylinder liners.

NPR Technology Roadmap

Dimple-based Friction Optimized Surface Technology (Cylinder Liners)

-Co-developed with Hino Motors. -By forming a dimpled-surface on the cylinder liner inner surface, it was able to reduce friction resistance between the cylinder liner and piston rings, and thereby increased the piston's compression efficiency. This improvement leads to a 3.2% gain in fuel economy on small diesel engine, and it is expected to double the effect on gasoline engines to around 6% improvement.

Assembled Type Sintered Camshafts

Installed vehicles: Subaru Vehicle with BOXER engine. Nissan "Skyline" and other models with VQ35 engine.

Piston Rings

Continuous Variable Valve Actuator (CVVA) "Reference Model: Patent Pending"
:Great reduction of pumping loss by controlling the air-intake with valve lift volume which replaces the movement of throttle valve. 
:Continuous variability of valve lift became reality by rocking movement of control lever over rocker arm.
