Delphi To Develop Innovative Manufacturing Technology With $3.7 Million Grant From U.S. Department Of Energy

Delphi Automotive (NYSE: DLPH) announced today that the company has been awarded a $3.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to develop a highly-versatile, energy-efficient method for micro-machining complex shapes. Utilizing ultrafast laser technology, the new manufacturing process will enable enhanced production of flow control holes in Delphi’s gas direct injection (GDi) fuel injectors.

This process will increase laser machining energy efficiency up to 25 percent over standard practices while eliminating secondary processes such as etching, deburring or surface cleaning.

Delphi is partnering with Raydiance, Inc. and Microlution, Inc. in the development of this new system. The project’s prototype platform will be developed and verified at Delphi’s Rochester facility.

“Delphi is committed to developing leading-edge technologies and processes which provide environmentally-responsible solutions to real-world challenges. We are very pleased to partner with the U.S. Department of Energy for these activities at our Rochester facility,” said Jeffrey Owens, chief technology officer, Delphi Automotive. “This project has energy-saving implications and applicability across numerous industries and our working relationship with the Department of Energy is critical to advancing these important initiatives.”
