Nissan licenses energy-efficient engine technology to HELLER

YOKOHAMA, Japan – Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. has licensed its Nissan Machining Roughening Process (“NMRP”), a proprietary technology used in making automotive engines, to world-leading German machine tool manufacturer Gebr. Heller Maschinenfabrik GmbH.

By using HELLER machinery that incorporates NMRP, carmakers worldwide will be able to mass-produce engines with highly energy-efficient cylinder bores with iron spray coating at a consistent quality level.

“Rather than limiting the use of our own technologies like NMRP within the company, Nissan is contributing to the technological advancement of the industry by making them widely available,” said Catherine Perez, corporate vice president of corporate strategy, partnerships and business development at Nissan. “Nissan will also advance its research and development by investing the profit gained from licensing assets like NMRP. We expect the licensing of NMRP to HELLER will result in improved quality of products and services as well as customer satisfaction in the automotive industry as a whole.”
