BorgWarner Supplies Engine Timing Technologies Locally For New Volkswagen Engines Produced In Mexico

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As a global supply partner, BorgWarner has begun manufacturing its advanced engine timing systems in El Salto, Mexico, providing localized production for Volkswagen's third-generation 2.0- and 1.8-liter DOHC I4 engines built at Volkswagen's new engine plant in Silao, Mexico. Developed by Audi, the fuel-efficient gasoline engines power the Volkswagen Jetta and Beetle as well as other models designated for the U.S. market. Initially, Volkswagen is expected to build over 300,000 engines per year at its new engine plant in Mexico, with the potential for higher volumes in the future. BorgWarner also supports these Volkswagen engines with local manufacturing in Europe and Asia.

"BorgWarner's advanced engine timing technologies reduce friction and weight to help improve fuel economy," said Joe Fadool, Vice President and General Manager, BorgWarner Morse TEC. "We value our long relationship with Volkswagen and are pleased to provide localized production to support its expansion into the North American market."

BorgWarner's industry-leading silent chains and hydraulic tensioners feature low-noise, low-weight and low-friction technologies to help improve fuel economy and engine efficiency. BorgWarner's inverted tooth silent chains for engine timing, countershaft and oil pumps utilize proprietary Super Finish Aperture (SFA) and vanadium carbide pin coating technology to improve wear performance. Using patented flow-tuning technology with a pressure relief valve, BorgWarner's modular hydraulic tensioners balance chain tension and optimize control over the entire engine operating range for improved robustness, increased engine efficiency and lower noise, vibration and harshness.
