Smart actuators improve vehicle performance
Fuel efficiency has been a driving force for new vehicle innovation – from reducing fuel consumption and emissions to the current electrification movement. MinebeaMitsumi’s automotive actuators play a vital role in this evolution, demonstrating our strong commitment to develop new products to meet emerging trends in the Automotive industry. For active grill shutters, our actuator adjusts the flaps which allows airflow to be directed in a controlled manner thus improving the aerodynamics of the vehicle. Improving aerodynamics does not only apply to combustion engine vehicles, electrified cars present a unique opportunity to improved range and performance. Air deflectors, rear diffusers, spoilers and tire deflectors can all be made “active” to reduce vehicle drag and improve fuel economy or battery range. Our growing line-up of actuators positions MinebeaMitsumi at the forefront of future mobility solutions.
