Owning 48% of the global market of the continuous variable transmission, JATCO is well positioned to share the cutting-edge technology that has supported its impressive growth.
The development of innovative transmission systems, more reliable and efficient, owes its success to consistent investments in R&D but also to the commitment to monozukuri activities. A concept created in Japan and popularized in the late 90’s, monozukuri reaffirms the ability to make things (manufacturing), integrating development, production and procurement, including craftsmanship and continuous improvement.
Volume 11 of JATCO Technical Review, which brings 21 research papers, dedicates a special feature to the next-generation Jatco CVT7.
Some of the highlights include:
- Development of a Compact, Lightweight Torque Converter
- Newest Control System and Calibration Techniques for the Jatco CVT7
- Difficulties and Joys of Localizing Jatco CVT7 Production in China
- Efforts to Halve Machining Takt Time of Jatco CVT7 Pulleys
- Shift Control System and Calibration Techniques for the Jatco CVT7
