Our success

Our great successes take place across the globe, particularly when one of our technologies is used by the majority of car manufacturers. 3 examples.

For electric power steering

We have developed a magnetic sensor solution that provides an effective response to an issue arising from the emergence of electric power steering systems (EPS) on vehicles. These systems integrate a sensor that must be able to measure the torque applied by the driver to provide this information to the power steering motor. This torque measurement is based on a torsion bar that is used to accurately evaluate deformation, independently of the steering wheel position and with the greatest insensitivity to environmental factors: temperature, geometric tolerances, etc. Licensed to several stakeholders around the world, this MMT technology is currently the most widely used.

With our technology, nearly 20 million components a year are produced by our licensees.

For vehicle aerodynamics

We have developed an extremely compact and flat gear motor solution to improve vehicle aerodynamics, particularly at the front end, while maintaining the ability to cool the engine. It incorporates an electronic control that can easily interface with the electrical architectures of different manufacturers. Produced by our partner Sonceboz, this MMT technology has been implemented by many manufacturers for whom it is decisive in the strategy of reducing vehicle fuel consumption (including in trucks).

With our technology, millions of parts are produced around the world every year.

For dashboard pointers

We have developed a stepper micromotor technology that makes it possible to produce a geared motor for driving dashboard pointers. This solution ideally meets the application’s needs: compactness, "smooth" running and low-cost mass production capacity at extremely high-quality levels. Produced by our partner Sonceboz and licensed to various stakeholders around the world, particularly in Japan, this MMT technology has become the go-to product.

Nearly 2 billion components using our technology have been on the market for over 15 years.
