NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd has announced it will once again be showcasing its portfolio of components at this year’s MECHANEX – coming to Sandown Park.

The company will be displaying its NTK camshaft and crankshaft sensors, ‘5-wire’ Lambda sensors and Mass Air Flow (MAF) and Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensors alongside its original equipment (OE) spark plugs and glow plugs, plus ignition coils, at the two-day show.

NGK recently enhanced its NTK sensors’ offering with the launch of 20 new wide band Lambda sensors. The company introduced the new wide band sensors – commonly referred to as ‘5-wire’ Lambda sensors – to supplement its existing range of 64 NTK original equipment (OE) 5-wire sensors.

The launch was said to have significantly increased its UK range coverage – particularly for VAG models – and means that NGK now has 5-wire sensors available for almost every vehicle manufacturer who utilises this technology.

News of the launch came hard on the heels of NGK’s announcement that it will introduce a range of new NTK camshaft and crankshaft sensors in the UK this year.

A new European programme, comprising 567-part numbers covering 88% of the car parc, equivalent to 270 million cars, was announced at the Automechanika Frankfurt show last year and UK-specific part numbers and vehicle parc coverage will be confirmed shortly.

Mark Hallam, Marketing Manager, NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd, said: “The launch of our new NTK 5-wire sensors confirmed the NTK electronics brand as the complete, one-stop shop for replacement sensors.

“NTK has more than 40 years’ experience in the sensor business and this is a fantastic addition to our range. We are looking forward to meeting up with technicians at Sandown Park and talking to them about our range of components which they fit daily in their workshops.”
