EPAS - Electric Power-Assisted Steering
Electric Power Steering
NSK's Electric Power Assisted Steering systems provide power only when required, unlike hydraulic systems which consume power all the time. As you turn the wheel, a sensor judges the resistance, and an electric motor is activated to give the necessary amount of assistance. With advanced software, adding functions such as vibration suppression to the steering wheel is easy.
Manual Steering Columns
NSK has reconsidered the whole concept of the electric tilt telescopic steering column, greatly simplifying the mechanism, reducing the number of parts required and using smaller motors requiring 40% less power. This means that electrically adjustable and programmable height and reach adjustment is possible on a much wider range of vehicles.
Joints and Shafts
Lightweight components with integrated functions to collapse, capability to adjust body frame movements, energy absorption during collision.
