With gear changes under acceleration and deceleration growing smoother, this also leads to a reduction in energy loss and fuel consumption. However, since we never cease to challenge ourselves, we made it our target to reduce energy loss by half.So, as the only manufacturer to make every automatic transmission part ourselves, from bearing and friction plates to one-way clutches, we made each component thinner, lighter and more efficient. What might seem like small steps, actually go a long way.
Long life Tapered Roller Bearings with integrated Outer Mounting Flange
These Tapered Roller Bearings provide a reduction in the total number of parts and a simplified mounting process. When combined with NSK design experience and technologies, they help to reduce the space and weight of transmissions.
Thrust Needle Roller Bearings for Power Train
The most common type of bearing in an automatic transmission is the Needle Roller Bearing. Each one is designed and made to the specific dimensions and specification required for the individual gearbox and its operating conditions.
Cylindrical Roller Bearings with PA46 Plastic Cage
By utilising different engineering polymers for the bearing cage, NSK increase capacity and therefore reduce the weight and costs, whilst maintaining oil and heat resistance.
Cage & Roller Assemblies and Shaft for Planetary Gears
Cage and roller assemblies for planetary gears have to cope with increasingly high speeds and low friction torque whilst maintaining durability.
