casting & forging technologies
improves cost-efficiency and weight reduction

  • EV-related

  • Transportation

  • Telecom-related

Yamaha Motor's casting is ideal for parts requiring reductions in weight and component numbers.

Benefits Based on
Real-world Examples

  1. : Integration

    The number of the components reduced from 120 to 2, and a roughly 98% reduction of components count.

  2. : Weight Reduction

    We have achieved 30% weight reductions.

Cast magnesium wheels that only Yamaha Motor can mass-produce in the world

What you can achieve
with Yamaha

  • Mass-production of large, thin-walled parts
  • Reduced weight
  • Fewer components needed
  • Lower manufacturing costs
  • Controlled Filling(CF) Die-Casting

    Controlled Filling(CF) Die-Casting

    Reduces weight by about 30% and roughly 90% reduction in the number of components needed for a part. Its use can typically reduce manufacturing costs by about 20%.

  • Cylinder Heads

    Cylinder Heads

    One-piece cylinder head greatly contributes to a more compact and less costly engine.

  • Forged aluminum pistons

    Forged Aluminum Pistons

    Selection criteria for raw materials, special manufacturing methods and improved die and mold durability - all this leads to success in producing forged aluminum pistons at a much lower cost.

Why we can do what we do

At Yamaha Motor, we use concurrent engineering based on 3D data to create the products that our clients desire with efficiency, speed, and the most optimal shape and construction. We can guarantee product development that integrates the three essential elements of quality, cost-effectiveness and delivery time.
