Developing Eco-Products

Mitsuboshi Belting promotes the production of products that contribute to the reduction of environmental burdens such as energy saving and waste reduction.

Automobile and Motorcycle Transmission Belts and Related Products Low Friction Loss Belts

The Japanese automobile industry is intensifying competition for fuel efficiency. To meet that need, we have succeeded in developing a low friction loss belt for auxiliary drive systems. By suppressing the internal heat generation of the belt rib part, we succeeded in reducing the friction loss due to bending and deformation of the belt and improving the transmission efficiency of the belt. As an epoch-making product that achieves low fuel consumption with a single accessory belt among the approximately 30,000 automobile parts, and also has functions such as sound resistance and wear resistance, it has been released to automobile manufacturers. The adoption is widespread.

Energy saving belt e-POWER®

The e-POWER® series is an environment-friendly belt with a special shape (notch, cog, double cog) that reduces bending stress, which is the largest cause of power loss, and enhances energy-saving effects. Since a dedicated pulley is not required, only the belt needs to be replaced, and the power saving effect is improved in the equipment of factories, hospitals, commercial / office buildings, industrial machinery, etc.

Freespan® belt for wind power generators

Our Freespan® belt is used to adjust the pitch of blades for wind power generators, which are becoming more and more recognized as renewable energy that does not emit greenhouse gases that cause global warming.

Silver nanoparticle paste pigment for mirror decoration

We have developed a paste pigment for mirror decoration of metallic paints and inks as a new application utilizing silver nanoparticles. By adopting a new manufacturing method, silver nanoparticles have succeeded in significantly reducing volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions during manufacturing compared to conventional manufacturing methods.
In addition, since it is most suitable as a pigment for mirror surface decoration in painting and various printing methods, it can be replaced with plating and thin-film deposition methods that are concerned about environmental load, and it is an environmentally friendly type that can contribute to reducing the environmental load on the customer side.
