Auto components India - - CONTENTS - ACI

BorgWarner, a global leader in clean and ef­fi­cient tech­nol­ogy so­lu­tions for com­bus­tion, hy­brid and elec­tric ve­hi­cles, de­liv­ers its proven waste­gate tur­bocharger for Honda’s new three-cylin­der 1.0-liter gaso­line di­rect-in­jected engine, ini­tially avail­able for the Civic in Asia and Europe. BorgWarner’s com­pact tur­bocharger im­proves engine ef­fi­ciency and boosts per­for­mance, help­ing achieve an out­stand­ing power out­put of 95 kW (127 HP) with quick engine re­sponse.

“De­signed for pow­er­ful, down­sized en­gines, BorgWarner’s waste­gate tur­bocharger com­bines high power den­sity and ex­cel­lent re­sponse in an ex­tremely com­pact pack­age. BorgWarner’s first global de­vel­op­ment with Honda re­flects our strong rep­u­ta­tion as a lead­ing sup­plier of ad­vanced tur­bocharg­ing tech­nolo­gies and sup­ports our growth in Asia and around the world,” Frédéric Lissalde, Pres­i­dent and Gen­eral Man­ager, BorgWarner Turbo Sys­tems, said.

BorgWarner’s re­li­able B01 tur­bocharger fea­tures a com­pact, ro­bust de­sign with low noise, vi­bra­tion and harsh­ness and fa­cil­i­tates the use of low vis­cos­ity oil. Its ad­vanced ma­te­ri­als with­stand ex­haust tem­per­a­tures up to 950 de­grees Cel­sius and ro­ta­tional speeds of up to 285,000 rpm. Fit­ted with an elec­tri­cally ac­tu­ated waste­gate for highly ac­cu­rate con­trol to pre­vent charge pres­sure at high engine power, BorgWarner’s tur­bocharger de­liv­ers pow­er­ful and ef­fi­cient per­for­mance.

In ad­di­tion, it im­proves fuel econ­omy while pro­vid­ing ex­cel­lent torque char­ac­ter­is­tics over the en­tire engine speed range. The low-in­er­tia turbine wheel al­lows a wider per­for­mance range while op­ti­mized har­ness­ing of ex­haust gas pul­sa­tion of­fers fast re­sponse at low engine speeds. In ad­di­tion, the rapid ac­ti­va­tion of the cat­alytic con­verter dur­ing cold starts sig­nif­i­cantly re­duces emis­sions.

BorgWarner is a global prod­uct leader in clean and ef­fi­cient tech­nol­ogy so­lu­tions for com­bus­tion, hy­brid and elec­tric ve­hi­cles. With man­u­fac­tur­ing and tech­ni­cal fa­cil­i­ties in 62 lo­ca­tions in 17 coun­tries, the com­pany em­ploys ap­prox­i­mately 27,000 world­wide.
