To accommodate the dynamic global economy where suppliers must work in close partnership with their customers throughout the supply chain, BorgWarner's Supplier Performance Monitor (SPM) system optimizes its supplier network as well as its own performance.
For those doubters able to see beyond the (at present) minuses of electric motive power, the practical little car may help to generate an automotive epiphany on the rugged road to powertrain reformation.
Hawe Hydraulics plans to show a variety of axial piston pumps at ConExpo/IFPE 2014, including the new V60N-130 pump type that is a member of the well-established V60N series. The company claims that the V60N-130 pump, in particular, sets new standards in terms of life cycle, efficiency, and control accuracy.
The new high-performance smart brushless DC (BLDC) actuators from Sonceboz were specifically developed to reduce emissions in harsh environments, including for exhaust flaps, turbochargers, EGR (exhaust gas recirculation), and throttle valves.
Grede is developing lightweight chassis, powertrain, and drivetrain components—including safety-critical systems—for several heavy-equipment manufacturers using a patented ductile iron alloy called SiboDur.
