Through our business, we aim to solve social issues faced by the industrial world, such as climate change, mobility change, and energy shift.
We are actively promoting the development of products that create new value by reducing frictional resistance and energy loss in response to ‘movement’s in a wide range of elds around the world.
Based on the six technologies, i.e. precision processing technology, sound absorbing plate material, electrode sheet, bimetal, surface treatment, evaluation/prediction technology,we are engaged in research and development of new technologies by making full use of our knowledge, experience,and information.
We will make a contribution to growing elds, e.g. environment, renewable energy, hydrogen energy-based society, mobility, aviation, space, food, agriculture, forestry and sheries, and lifestyle, by brushing up on the existing technologies and accelerating new technology development.
① 【Polymer overlay】
In response to the worldwide effort toward carbon neutrality, and to increase the thermal efciency of engines in keeping with tighter regulations on CO2 emissions, we are helping to reduce friction loss even further by developing and supplying polymer overlay surface treatments that improve low-friction characteristics by applying concepts different from those of conventional designs.
② 【Bi overlay】
In order to respond to stricter exhaust gas regulations, we have developed a new lead-free overlay that can stand up to severe demands such as the high specific load, high temperature environments and long service life requirements of truck engines, and have obtained good results from tests using actual engine.
③ 【Copper alloy】
In the area of engines for marine vessels and power generation, we have developed lead-free copper alloys with improved corrosion resistance for use in gas engines (including DF), which are coming into increasingly widespread use. We are also conducting research into technologies for hydrogen and ammonia fuels.
