Delphi Wins Two PACE Awards For Innovative Products And Processes

Delphi Automotive (NYSE: DLPH) was awarded two Automotive News PACE (Premier Automotive Suppliers’ Contribution to Excellence) Awards at a ceremony held here last night. Delphi holds 15 PACE Awards, more than any other company.

Delphi took top honors in the manufacturing process category for the Multi-Port Folded Tube Condenser (MFTC) and in the product category for the L-Shape Crimp for 0.13 mm 2 wire size. Additionally, Delphi was a finalist for the Premium Low Noise High Pressure GDi Fuel Pump in the product category and for the Wiring Harness Bend Fatigue Simulation Tool in the information technology category.

“PACE awards recognize the best of the best in the supply industry,” said Jeffrey Owens, Delphi chief technology officer. “This independent and expert recognition acknowledges all of the hard work we do to develop and produce technologically-advanced and market-relevant products.”

Presented annually to coincide with the SAE World Congress, the PACE awards recognize superior innovation, technological advancement and business performance by automotive suppliers. The judges are independent, distinguished and highly-experienced industry representatives focused on real-world benefits available from innovative technologies.

Multi-Port Folded Tube Condenser (MFTC)

In automotive air-conditioning, the condenser is designed to cool the system by transferring heat from the internal refrigerant — across metal surfaces — to the outside air. For condensers, more metal surface area means better performance. Conventional condensers use multi-channel extruded tubes to provide the surface area needed for effective heat transfer. Extruded tubes, however, are heavy and can require costly, complex manufacturing processes.

Delphi's MFTC design uses parallel, tube-like channels for the heat transfer surfaces. These channels are formed by folding a metal strip back on itself several times. By replacing extruded tubes with folded tubes, condensers can be manufactured in significantly less time than it takes to produce a conventional condenser, eliminating costly production steps and saving valuable resources.
