Ignition coil technologies
The continuous development of ignition technology has advanced in recent years - and with it, the ignition technologies used by automobile manufacturers.
Five different types of ignition coils
For this reason, NGK offers several different ignition coil technologies:
- cylinder ignition coils,
- distributor ignition coils,
- block ignition coils,
- pencil coils and
- gnition coil systems (rails).
In the process: Each of these technologies precisely matches the specifications of the automobile manufacturer down to the last detail and, in interaction with the other components of the ignition system - ignition cable, spark plug and, if applicable, a mechanical distributor - guarantees an optimal, reliable ignition.
Highest quality guaranteed
The well-known high quality standards of NGK are also applied to its ignition coils: Each ignition coil is produced in strict compliance with OE specifications. The positioning and contacting of the components, as well as the design of soldering points and connections takes place on the basis of the stringent quality standard TS16949. The vacuum moulding process is used to ensure a blister-free encapsulation. Each ignition coil in the assortment is measured mechanically and electrically using lasers, subjected to an installation test as well as long-term high-temperature tests and a temperature fluctuation test from -40 to +140 °C. In addition, the grinding marks of the coil and the electromagnetic compatibility are subject to precise controls.
