20170626_products_valves_EGR

EGR Valve

The exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve, controlled by the electronic control unit (ECU), is used to recycle exhaust gas from the engine back to the combustion chambers of the engine. When an instruction from the ECU is received, the EGR valve turns on and a metered amount of exhaust gas from the engine is returned to the fuel/air mixture and recycled, thereby lowering the maximum temperature of the engine combustion. Lowering the temperature of the engine combustion promotes a reduction of the nitrogen oxides in exhaust gas and stable air intake and exhaust. The EGR valve contributes to lower exhaust gas emissions.

 

Keihin product features

  • Highly accurate valve mechanism for controlling exhaust gas recirculation - This valve utilizes a poppet-type valve with an easy-to-set opening area, which makes it reliable in the reduction of nitrogen oxides in the exhaust gas.
  • Highly responsive linear solenoid included - To ensure a recyclable flow rate, a high-response linear solenoid is installed within the valve. By ensuring the flow rate, overall fuel economy is improved.

Customer benefits

  • Aids customers in their efforts to reduce nitrogen oxides
  • Contributes to low-fuel consumption

RAA_Spool_Valve_2

Active Control Mount Solenoid (for VCM)

Active Control Mount (ACM) restrains the vibration that is conducted to the vehicle body while the engine is idling and driving through the signal from the exclusive ECU. Cylinder deactivation for the reduction of exhaust gas and improved fuel consumption causes additional engine vibration. The ACM actuator minimizes NVH by generating an opposite phase pulse in the ACM. High performance ACM is achieved by the bobbin to maintain the inside diameter of the coil is eliminated by non-fused coil wire, and the structure that molds coupler as one allows high response and high thrust force.

fuel_pipe_assembly

Fuel Pipe Assembly

The Fuel Pipe Assembly incorporates the fuel distribution pipe and injectors to ensure proper assembly and guarantee against fuel leaks. The assembly of these parts also guard against contaminants introduced into these critical components. The optimum amount of the fuel that is sent from the fuel pump based on the driving conditions is injected into the intake manifold via the fuel injector from the command of the Electronic Control Unit (ECU). Due to tougher restrictions on exhaust gas in many countries, this started as a core part for optimum air / fuel mixture. Inexpensive and high precision product is provided by exact machining and assembly technology we gained through decades of carburetor work. We contribute to reduced emissions and low fuel consumption by utilizing optimum spray pattern to the engine through simulation technology, vehicle test, and cutting edge measurement technology.

Linear_Solenoid_vlave2

Linear Solenoid Valve for AT

This is a control module for 6-speed automatic transmissions. The functions of four linear solenoid valves and three shift solenoids are integrated. As realizing light weight and small size, gear shift and clutch oil pressure are controlled very precisely to accommodate multiple steps of gear shifts. There is a line-up of optimum linear solenoids that suit the use such as high response type due to exhaust gas regulation and for fuel consumption.

ACM_Solenoid_6

Solenoid Valve

Gears are shifted within the Automatic Transmission by switching the oil passage based on the command from ECU and actuating the shift valve. Due to the fuel consumption regulations, the solenoid body was changed from steel to aluminum. The result was a reduction in weight. Additionally, the electromagnetic coil was reduced by increased efficiency through a change in the structure of the magnetic passage of the solenoid. The high thrust force solenoid specification allows a wide range of oil pressure control. The optimization of valve setting ensures oil flow even at low temperature, realizing high response switching of the shift valve.
