To meet all the performance and quality requirements for airbags, we now manufacture three types of airbag inflators that employ different methods.
Gas generation through combustion of propellant.
Release of inert compressed gas.
A combination of pyrotechnic and compressed gas methods.
Also, by leveraging our expertise gained in pyrotechnics, we are developing and manufacturing PGGs, initiators and other new products that work instantaneously.
The ignition device is trig-gered by an electrical signal. It can be deployed in a variety of applications.
An airbag system comprises an inflator that activates upon receiving a signal from collision sensors and a bag that inflates like a balloon. When the sensors detect a collision, a signal is sent to the ECU (a device containing circuitry for diagnosing a collision). If the ECU determines a collision has occurred, it generates an ignition current to activate the inflator within a few milliseconds, which inflates the airbag to protect the occupant.
This gas-generating system protects a driver in a head-on collision. It employs the pyrotechnic method.
This gas-generating system protects a front passenger in a head-on collision. It employs the pyrotechnic methods.
This gas-generating system protects an occupant’s head in a side collision. It employs the pyrotechnic, compressed gas, and hybrid methods.
This gas-generating system protects an occupant’s chest and abdomen in a side collision. It employs the pyrotechnic and hybrid methods.
This gas-generating system protects an occupant’s legs in a head-on collision. It employs the pyrotechnic and hybrid methods.
This gas generator protects an occupant by retracting the seat belt during a collision. It employs the pyrotechnic method.
During a collision, the seat belt remains locked while the pressure is dispersed maximally to the chest area.
After the collision, the PGG applies force to the piston, causing the pretensioner to instantly pull on the seat belt, restraining the occupant in the seat.
After the collision, the inflation of the airbag reduces the force applied to the head and chest area.
At the same time, the seat belt tension is moderately eased by the activation of force limiters.
This device provides an instant disconnection of an electrical harness for facilities or equipment that require an emergency electrical disconnection. It is used primarily with hybrid and electric vehicles to prevent leakage from a battery during a collision.
This device instantly pushes out a pin. It is expected to be used as a hood lifter to protect people in the event of a car collision where it is necessary to push out a pin in an emergency situation.
This device instantly pulls a pin. It is used on devices that require a pin to be pulled in an emergency situation.
