In suspensions, our products help to absorb impact with the road and improve driving stability.
Compared to ball bearings, PS bearings can be made thinner, lighter and smaller. Friction can also be controlled as desired, providing ideal steering wheel handling.
Our steering products contribute to the feel of steering and straight-running stability of a wide variety of automobiles. Our rack guides and rack bushings excel in sliding and wear resistance and are used globally. We have the largest share of the global market.
The seat height and front/rear adjuster require smooth movement and minimal rattling during operation. Our multi-layered bearings, with their smooth movement, are used.
Side door/Sliding door
Conductive multi-layered bearings are used in stamped and shaped steel side door hinges, which require load resistance, smooth movement, and conductivity.
In addition, the use of guide rollers made of 80 or 480, which have excellent wear resistance, in sliding doors contributes to the improved durability of the product.
In addition to stamped hinges, conductive multi-layered bearings are used in trunk hinges, which require load resistance, smooth movement, and conductivity.
Compared to bimetallic bearings, our multi-layered bearings have superior seizure resistance and continue to operate smoothly even under poor lubrication condition.
With its excellent self-lubrication, the Oiles 550 sealing ring provides superior sealing, heat resistance, and vibration characteristics, and it improves NV characteristics by reducing the rigidity of and attenuating friction on the entire exhaust pipe.

Gas pedal/brake pedal
A cam mechanism allows the width of hysteresis to vary for the brake depending on the extent of pedal depression, providing a good feel during operation. The specially shaped 80 bearing used in the brake pedal support provides a rattle-free feel during operation.
Our specially shaped bearings provide a rattle-free feel when shifting gears.
The pedal is no longer mechanically connected now that it is “brake-by-wire,” and a operation feeling to be created when stepping on the pedal. Our hysteresis brake and damper use friction and damping technologies to give pedal products an optimal operating feel.

Electrical components must be lightweight and compact in order to improve the fuel efficiency of vehicles. The use of our multi-layered bearings with superior wear resistance and smooth movement saves space compared to ball bearings.
Electric water pump
Thermal management systems to keep the motor and batteries at optimal temperatures are becoming increasingly important for electric vehicles (xEVs: HEVs, PHEVs, BEVs, etc.), and electric water pumps that circulate cooling water are increasingly used in these vehicles. The impeller moves the cooling water. Use of our bearings in the impeller reduces the water pump’s power consumption and extends its life.
To prevent the squeaking of metal on metal, our products are used in the leaf springs of trucks because of their high strength and excellent sliding characteristics as noise suppressors.
Air suspension seats, which provide a comfortable and fatigue-free ride even after long hours of driving a truck, use 480 and multi-layered bearings with excellent wear resistance and smooth movement, helping to improve product durability.
Our products are used in suspensions, power trains, automatic sliding doors, etc., and help to extend the life of products.
Even in harsh environments with foreign matter, such as garbage trucks, metallic bearings can be used for long periods of time without lubrication. Dampers are also used in custom vehicles to improve comfort.
