Weight reduction and high transmission efficiency demands are getting heavier to manual transmission (MT) for vehicle driving and fuel economy performance.
Also comfortable shift feeling and low gear noise level are continuously required by customer because those sensitivity performances are directly recognized by driver which can determine the transmission's merchantability.
Newly developed high torque capacity MT is based on serial transmission BG6 which is adopted into a lot of customer' vehicle. This new MT is weight reduced, shift feeling and gear noise performance are highly improved that keeps strong competitiveness in the future.
Concerning shift feeling, its smoothness, force balance and cross shift performance are improved and optimized.
Also for low gear noise performance, it was reduced to the level which can have advantage to competitor and highly comfortable for passenger vehicle.
Those improvement technologies are reported as follows.
