Automotive Exhaust Components and Systems

Product Information

We pursue performance that can be enjoyed from the moment the engine starts. We closely follow industry trends in order to create a harmony between environmental performance and functionality.

Product Development

Initial study

We design and develop products based on the requirements shared by our customers. By utilizing optimized design tools and simulation to make early decisions on specification, we are able to reduce development time.

Optimized Calculations



We tune exhaust sounds through simulation for each vehicle's needs and create a design that optimizes both vehicle performance and gas mileage.

We test exhaust sounds and vibration noise by mounting the exhaust system onto the engine.

Durability

Durability & Noise

Vibrations from the engine travel to the exhaust system and are then transmitted to the cars interior. We use simulation to test and evaluate whether there are any influences on the durability and tone transmitted to the car interior.

Heat Cycling

We use heat cycling, the process of repeated heating and cooling, to estimate the durability for the exhaust manifold.

Internal and External Vehicle Sounds

We perform evaluations on the exhaust sound clarity and sound quality from both the inside and outside of the vehicle.
