Automotive manufacturers around the world have been using NMB components to complement their applications for many years. As automotive technology continues to evolve, so do the component solutions from NMB. We know that the ever-changing challenges that face automotive product design engineers mean that high quality, high performance components are always in demand. NMB provides components that perform at the highest levels the automotive industry requires. We keep pace with the design innovations and technological advances taking place within the auto manufacturing industry by constantly challenging ourselves to supply customized automotive design solutions that provide flawless performance.
Our smart actuators incorporate drive electronics and a motor into the actuator housing. Their main application in active grille shutter (AGS) systems significantly contributes to vehicle energy efficiency.
HVAC actuators are stepping motor-based actuators for use in vehicle cabin comfort. We supply these with LIN bus (HAL) and without LIN bus (HAD). These HVAC actuators provide low noise and low power consumption for premium cabin comfort.
Customers rely on our BLDC motors for their high efficiency, long life and reliability. BLDC motors are used for automotive fuel pumps and SCR systems that contribute to overall vehicle fuel efficiency.
Passenger comfort is one of the most important aspects of the driver experience. NMB supplies custom cooling solutions for seat ventilation with an emphasis on low noise, low vibration and high airflow.
Torque sensor resolvers can be mounted to vehicle steering columns to provide position input to the power steering control module. Coupled with driver input and feedback from additional sensors, this information is used to determine the amount of steering assist required.
Resolvers are attached to motors used for power steering and electric braking to provide accurate position and speed feedback. This feedback enables these systems to automatically adjust to driver input.
NMB miniature bearings are the premier choice for automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers. Our ultra-precision manufacturing technology, high quality materials, and tribology scientifically designed to withstand harsh environments within such applications as throttle body, windshield wiper motors, and EGR valves, insure long life and flawless operation. Below are just some of the key components that rely on NMB brand bearings.
High technology products demand bearing assemblies and precision components to satisfy increasingly critical tolerances. MinebeaMitsumi precision shaft components are developed for use in anti-lock breaking systems and contribute to slide reduction during operation.
High heat resistant ball bearing units are used for automotive turbochargers. MinebeaMitsumi has improved combustion efficiency and reduced the time lag between the pedal operation and automobile acceleration by adopting high-heat resistant ball bearings instead of oil-lubricating bearings.
Our custom-designed Connector Box & Media Hub provides consumer facing USB and AUX ports to interface with various electronic devices.
High speed data (HSD) connectors are responsible for critical data transfer applications within vehicles such as video displays, instrument clusters, and infotainment control modules. Our HSD connectors conform to Automotive Industry standards for design and performance.
USB-C power delivery in vehicles enables passengers to quickly and efficiently charge their devices on-board. Our USB Type C connectors meet applicable USB 2.0 and USB 3.1 Gen 2 standards for design and performance.
Global Positioning Systems (GPS) used for navigation require antennas in order to receive satellite signals to pinpoint location. Our GPS antennas offer high performance, low noise and low axial ratio.
In-vehicle networks use Power Line Communication (PLC) to achieve advanced digital communication of data, music and video signals over a DC power line. Our HD-PLC module delivers high data transfer rates at low power.
Backlights are used to illuminate LCD screens for vehicle infotainment, instrument clusters and navigation. Our ultra-precise machining technology produces extremely uniform illumination with high reliability.
This combination temperature & humidity sensor can be used to determine when a vehicle windshield is fogging. The sensor then communicates to the system to engage anti-fogging measures to maintain safe driving conditions.
Vehicle passenger seats use strain gauge pressure sensor technology to determine whether the seat is occupied. If occupancy is detected, the system alerts the driver if safety harnesses are not engaged.
In automotive product applications, components are often subjected to a variety of stressors, such as dust particles, heavy loads, high temperatures, and more.
