Yanmar Co., Ltd. Key Developments

Yanmar To Reportedly Acquire Stake In International Tractors

The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX) will sell its 17.75% stake in International Tractors Limited (ITL) to Yanmar Co., Ltd. for INR 17 billion, according to two people aware of the development. Calls and text messages sent to A.S. Mittal, Vice-Chairman of ITL, remained unanswered. An email sent to the company spokesperson also did not elicit a response. Spokespersons for Blackstone and Yanmar did not respond to emails seeking comment. The company initiated discussions to hire bankers for an initial share sale, the report said.

Yanmar Co., Ltd. Unveils New YT2 Series Tractors

Yanmar Co., Ltd. has unveiled its new YT2 series tractors. The YT2 series is ideal for applications in smaller size farms, and would be the perfect choice in farms located in mountainous areas and suburban farms. Employing a more simplified lever and switch cluster, a 10-speed transmission and the J-change Plus, which offers seamless forward and reverse transitioning without the need to use a clutch - the YT2 series tractors were built with ease-of-operation in mind, empowering practically anyone to be able to operate them. The YT2 series tractors offer a comfortable workstation to operate from, with the cab's smoothed out, load-reducing flooring allowing the operator to easily enter and exit the cab, in addition to being constructed with anti-vibration flooring reducing engine vibrations for a smoother ride. Furthermore, the enhanced rotary tiller offers considerable improvements to tillage precision. Improvements in tine layout and rotor and cover design offer better soil inversion and tillage performances, adding to a further increase in machine productivity. Whether it is for small or large size farms, the YT series offers an extensive lineup that can be tailored to a wide range of tractor applications. Whether the operator has experience in using previous models or is just a beginner, with the enhanced 10-speed transmission and the J-change Plus, which offers seamless forward and reverse transitioning without the need to use a clutch, the YT2 series is built to be easy to operate for anyone. The features include: Finger Touch Reverser; 10-speed transmission lever; and No Clutch Break Stop. There's no need to use a clutch for forward and reverse transitioning, as it can now be completed with a lever conveniently located next to the steering wheel. By lightly adjusting the lever, all gear changes can be accomplished seamlessly without using a clutch, eliminating any gear changing jolts. Stopping the machine also now no longer requires a clutch. The bell housing has been upgraded with the HST (hydrostatic transmission) positioning now being on the same side as the clutch, resulting in flattened flooring to allow the operator to get in and out of the cab with ease. Improvements in rotary tiller tine layout and rotor and cover designs offer better soil inversion and tillage performances. The enlarged 490 mm diameter rotors offer deeper soil penetration compared to the EG200 series at 450 mm, allowing for improved water retention in mountainous and terraced paddy fields.

Toyota Motor Corporation and Yanmar Co., Ltd. Reaches Collaboration Agreement on Technical Development, Production, and Mutual Parts Use in the Nautical Industry

Toyota Motor Corporation and Yanmar Co., Ltd. have reached an agreement to collaborate on technical development, production, and mutual parts use in the nautical industry. A concept craft previewing the first product developed under this collaboration will go on display at the Japan International Boat Show. Toyota currently manufactures and sells aluminum-hulled pleasure crafts equipped with automotive engines, and is firmly establishing itself in the marine business with a lineup of products that offer excellent seaworthiness and quiet operation. Yanmar is an industrial device manufacturer that has specialized in industrial diesel engines. The company also manufactures marine engines, as well as fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) fishing boats and industrial vessels. Although aluminum hulls offer high rigidity, they require advanced machining technology to manufacture, and can only be produced in limited quantities. To resolve these challenges, Toyota has been working for the past two years on the development of next generation hulls that allow for production in larger quantities by using a combination of FRP, carbon, and aluminum to either equal or surpass the rigidity of aluminum hulls. Since last year, Toyota and Yanmar have been working on the joint development of production technologies for next generation hulls, with a focus on using Yanmar's advanced FRP molding technology. As a result, Toyota is on the verge of realizing large-scale production of marine craft that use the Toyota Hybrid Hull, a lightweight structure that enables production of complex, curved shapes while offering rigidity equal to aluminum hulls. Toyota has already developed a new craft, Toyota-28 Concept, that makes use of the Toyota Hybrid Hull structure for the first time. In testing, the new craft has demonstrated seaworthiness and handling capabilities surpassing existing models. Toyota and Yanmar will work toward joint commercialization of a model based on this concept ahead of an expected launch in October, with manufacturing (including the Toyota Hybrid Hull) outsourced to Yanmar. The structure of the Toyota Hybrid Hull offers significant improvements in three areas: materials, composition, and shape. By combining FRP (the hull's base material) with aluminum and carbon, the Toyota Hybrid Hull achieves approximately seven times the rigidity of a standard FRP hull, while weighing roughly 10% less than a similarly-sized craft with an aluminum hull. The Toyota Hybrid Hull design also enables the molding of complicated curved shapes, leading to improved maneuverability and making large-scale production possible. Using a manufacturing method called vacuum infusion molding, resin is placed in molds with an air vacuum and the three materials are integrally molded. A multi-layer structure packed with foam materials in the middle is adopted on the bottom of crafts, where the amount of stress is applied. By removing the requirements and limitations of aluminum welding, the Toyota Hybrid Hull structure enables the production of boat hulls with more innovative and complex designs. This, combined with the use of cutting-edge simulation technology, allows the new Toyota-28 Concept to achieve low resistance and high stability. Toyota will continue to enhance its own lineup of pleasure crafts while endeavoring to find ways to work with Yanmar in other areas, including product development and mutual supply of key components such as engines, in addition to sales and after-sales service.
