Electric Roadster

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiryYEBBUJANA R2, Korea’s first electric car released by Power Plaza, was created by combining futuristic technology with a more beautiful design than the previous version. YEBBUJANA R2 is equipped with a unique dolphin-shaped design emphasizing the beauty and simplicity of the car body by making the most of the curved line through using the One-piece Underfloor method. The black line of the rear is simple yet provides dynamism and elegance with maximized volume.
The YEBBUJANA R2 is able to travel a distance of up to 765km at a 60km/h cruise speed on a single charge. It features a top speed of 199km/h and speeds from 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds, which is as fast as a sports car’s acceleration. Power Plaza has been releasing its unique electric YEBBUJANA series at Seoul Motor Show since 2011. The One-piece Underfloor applied to YEBBUJANA R2 this time refers to a Korean patented special technology developed by Power Plaza.
The supreme feature of the One-piece Underfloor, which is designed in a monocoque construction to integrate the body and frame, is that it allows dramatic reduction of facility investment and related costs compared with the conventional vehicle production approach, while proving that electric cars can be produced even in a small manufacturing facility.
In regard to the performance, YEBBUJANA R2 can travel up to 765km at a 60km/h cruising speed on just one charge. This remarkable mileage on a single charge is based on the built-in 81kWh battery (optional) and carbon fiber material.

Specialization in the Export of OEM and Quality Aftermarket A/C Parts

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiry[INQ. NO. 1708M27] Ever since its foundation in 2002, KOR.E International has been specializing in the export of OEM and quality aftermarket A/C parts. It started out with just one loyal overseas customer, but through its strength and perseverance to advance into overseas markets, KOR.E has continued to grow successfully as a global export company by earning trust from customers.
KOR.E focuses on supplying the A/C auto parts industry with condensers, radiators, compressors, evaporators, HVAC units, complete A/C systems, and other spare parts. KOR.E has been able to set itself apart from other trading companies with its commitment to customer service. It takes pride in having close relationships with all of its customers and being able to understand and predict their needs.

Functions of Major Components of Car AirConditioning Systems

A condenser is required to cool down the hot refrigerant coming from a compressor, so it is located at the front of a car where it can be exposed to the maximum amount of air. As the hot refrigerant flows into the condenser, it dissipates heat by flowing through a system of ultra-thin tubes that are held together by fins.
KOR.E manufactures Parallel Flow (PF) condensers that have been proven more effective and reliable than serpentine or plate and fin-type condensers. It carries over 1,000 models of condensers and has the ability to customize a condenser as customers want. All the processes are in accordance with ISO9001, TS16949 and ISO14001.
A compressor is a key part of a car’s air-conditioning system and is usually driven by the engine via a V-belt or ribbed V-belt. As low-pressure liquid refrigerant from the evaporator flows into the compressor, the liquid is compressed into high pressure gas and sent to the condenser. These units compress liquid refrigerant into gas while keeping the refrigerant flowing through the airconditioning system. Compressors are also filled with special lubricating oil, and some of this oil circulates with the refrigerant through the air-conditioning system, keeping all of the parts lubricated.
A radiator is located at the front of a car’s engine, just behind the condenser, and is the most important component of the cooling module because it keeps the engine from overheating. The radiator is made up of a radiator core, along with two plastic side tanks, and all the necessary connections and attachments. The radiator core is made up of a network of fins and tubes that run either horizontally or vertically, depending on the application.
