Designed for lighter weight, smaller space and lower cost than gear drives, BorgWarner’s (Auburn Hills, MI) silent chains technology provides durable performance, even under high speeds typical in hybrid applications. The company produces silent chains for Suzuki’s Solio hybrid vehicle. When driving under electric power, two chains transfer power from the electric motor to the transmission to propel the vehicle. During braking or deceleration, the chains transmit power back to the motor to recharge the battery. BorgWarner also supplies the silent timing chain for the 1.2-L gasoline engine. According to the company, in both applications, lower friction improves durability and increases efficiency. For more information, visit http://www.borgwarner.com/.
