National Engineering Industries also known as NBC, will be bringing in a host of new innovative systems which promise to enhance the auto sector productivity factor while also conserve energy. The company stated that they would concentrate on bringing about a sea change in the auto components industry offering world class quality, flexibility and customization reducing cycle time and leading to enhanced productivity.
Conservation of natural resources will be their prime objective. In an in-depth study conducted on the utilization of fuel in an engine, it was found that only 12.6% is actually utilized to propel the vehicle forward whereas 62% was lost due to engine friction and heat, 17% was lost in idling, 2% in accessories operation and 5.6% due to drive train friction and slippage.
To reduce the incidence of friction, NBC has come out with low torque bearing technology and low torque grease which has been developed to improve fuel efficiency. Fuel efficient bearings are also being developed for four wheeler vehicles which have been tested and found satisfactory on two wheelers.
