PURCHASE, N.Y.--()--Hitachi Metals America, Ltd. (HMA) announced today that HMA offers innovative solutions to vehicle technologies with its high-functional materials and components. HMA is showcasing these technologies at booth 929 at the Innovation Only Exhibition at the SAE 2014 World Congress in Detroit, MI.

Tough CAFE 2025 standards mandate higher fuel economy. And lowering CO2 emissions will become an increasingly important goal. Beyond these is the consumer’s constant wish for high performance. These requirements compel auto OEMs and suppliers to introduce next generation technologies in either advanced ICE or HEV/PHEV/EV.

Hitachi Metals, with its proven leading brands and committed materials R&D, manufactures numerous eco-friendly products, such as NEOMAX® Nd-Fe-B sintered permanent magnets with DDMagic™ technology for HEV/EV motors, FINEMET® nanocrystalline soft magnetic materials for noise-suppression components, and HERCUNITE® series heat-resistant casting components for turbo housings and exhaust manifolds -- to name a few.

Hitachi Metals is making materials matter, thus offering superior solutions for automotive OEMs and suppliers, enabling these to bring next generation technologies to a demanding market.
