Lucas TVS has launched Stick Coil, a new  generation high energy ignition coil, capable of increasing a vehicles fuel efficiency and reducing emission. The company has put up a state of the art new manufacturing facility for this Stick type ignition coil to cater to the needs of new generation gasoline engines in India. The new facility is located at its Rewari plant, 50 Kms from Gurgaon near Delhi .

The new plant is located inside a clean room and while some of the key machines are imported from reputed suppliers in Japan, many of the assembly machines and the sophisticated end of line test machine were designed and made by the in-house LUCAS TVS special purpose machine  building  division.

"The ignition coil uses high performance special plastic and magnetic steel material. The manufacture of these coils  employ number of new contemporary technologies such as thin walled electrical high voltage moulding, special winding technology, high voltage encapsulation potting technology and high precision assembly. Key benefits and features of the new generation coils are smaller size, compact, light weight and provide smooth appearance on the top of the engine head cover. The processes incorporate single piece flow and poke yoke to manufacture this complex product to zero ppm quality levels," said T.K. Balaji, Managing Director, Lucas TVS.

Complete combustion of the injected fuel in the cylinder is one of the best way to achieve better fuel efficiency and reduce emission. In gasoline engines combustion is determined to a great extent by the energy of the spark produced.

"The stick coil is integrated with ignitor (electronic control and  switching devise) inside the coil and  generates a high voltage to the spark plug based on a signal from the engine ECU. The coil has the magnetic circuit that fits in to the plug hole of an engine with direct connection to spark plug eliminating the need for high tension cables. The ignition coil is installed in the plug hole which earlier a dead space, offering a very neat solution to vehicle manufacturers," he added.
