Product Development to
Anticipate Customer Needs
A great many JTEKT products are used in cars.
In the engine, the transmission, the hub, the steering system, the electrical devices, and so on, as the car's performance improves dramatically, the performance requirements for components (long service life, low-friction torque, light weight, etc.) are also increasing.
JTEKT is working hard to develop products to anticipate customer needs.
The components of the engine, which is the heart of the car, are especially required to have a high level of reliability and endurance. JTEKT's products have a long service life even under severe conditions such as high-speed rotation, high temperature, or vibration, and their small size and light weight means a lower fuel consumption.
The drivetrain includes components such as the clutch, transmission, and differential gear, and performs complex actions while serving the purpose of transmitting the driving force from the engine to the wheels. JTEKT's products have a long service life even under severe conditions such as high-speed rotation, high temperature, or dirty oil, and what's more, their small size and light weight means a lower fuel consumption.
These are used in the wheel section connecting the wheels and the tires, and they support the heavy vehicle weight and rotate the tires smoothly while receiving external force. JTEKT's products decrease the vehicle weight while promoting the integration of a portion of the surrouding components, and the built-in sensors contribute to improved reliability and functionality.
The vehicle is provided with basic functions such as running, turning and stopping. The steering system covers one of these basic functions, "turning."
The electric power steering system developed by JTEKT in 1988 first in the world is superior in fuel consumption as well as in the ease of installation and boasts the top share even now.
The driving force generated at the engine is transmitted to four tires with this mechanism.
The driving force must be distributed to four tires according to the terrain and traveling state to realize low fuel consumption and stable travel.
JTEKT applies multiple core technologies while centering on the bearing technologies and hydraulic/electronic control technologies, so that we have products boasting the top share.
6Oil seals for cars
At JTEKT, we set seals according to the required functions for each car component. By designing the optimal seal for each usage area based on logical analysis, and selecting/formulating the optimal materials, we are improving sealing performance and achieving low-friction torque.
In aftermarket sales, we will create new value by putting ourselves in our customers' shoes, and, by utilizing our "No. 1 & Only One" technologies as a manufacturer of original products, we are committed to the provision of a wide variety of products, services, and happiness through our global sales network.
