Automated Transmissions

Friction Plates

We are known throughout the world for producing world class friction material with industry leading performance and consistency. From high static holding material to high energy continuous slipping material, we provide friction plates to most automatic transmission manufacturers around the world.

Double Sided Friction Plates

Technology in double sided friction plates continues to evolve. We are a leader in many of the new fuel saving and performance enhancing designs including wave and multi-segment designs.

img-1-sided-friction-plate

Single Sided Friction Plates

Combining friction plate and separator technology, we offer single sided friction plates and collated packs. Each steel plate in the pack serves as a reaction surface, allowing greater active friction surface area and increased torque capacity over a conventional double sided design of the same volume.

Clutch Kits / Modules

We provide complete transmission clutch kits for the rebuilder. Get all of the required friction plates for your rebuild in one package.

Transmission Bands

We established the industry standard for single and double-wrap band performance a generation ago. Superior drum conformity delivers repeatable shift quality and long life. Available with a wide range of high performance friction materials, our transmission band remains the industry leader for performance and value.

One-Way Clutches

Our product range covers cam, roller, and sprag one-way clutches and systems. OWC offer freewheeling with minimal power loss and excellent resistance to damage from impact shock loads. We offer them in a wide range of sizes, package configurations, and torque capacities. Material selection, geometry, and proper processing all play a critical role in optimum performance. Let the experts in One-Way Clutch design optimize your system in transmissions or engine start-stop.

Sprag Clutches

Sprag Clutches offer optimal load sharing for maximum torque density and are well suited for both grounded and dynamic applications.

img-roller-clutches

Roller Clutches

Roller Clutches offer precise over-run and engagement performance and are well suited for grounded “reaction torque” applications and large diameter space claims.

img-pawl-ratchet-clutches

Pawl / Ratchet Clutches

Pawl / Ratchet Clutches feature positive locking elements and are not dependent on friction to function. This provides high torque capacity with low spin loss.

Solenoids / Controls

We are a leading supplier of integrated transmission control systems. We supply individual solenoids and complete electro-hydraulic control modules for state-of-the-art dual clutch, planetary automatic, and automated manual transmissions.

Solenoids

We manufacture a wide variety of solenoids including High Pressure (HP), Low Leak Variable Bleed (VBS), On-Off, Pulse Modulated (PWM), Proportional Mini Direct-Acting Variable Force (MDA VFS), Variable Force / Proportional Solenoids for many of the most demanding applications throughout the worlds.

Valve Assemblies and Modules

Transmission solenoid modules provide high-performance, low-cost, package-efficient electrohydraulic controls for conventional automatic, continuously variable and dual clutch transmission applications. These modules integrate various solenoid types and sensors, provide a single-point electrical connection for the customer, and increasingly provide valve body functions not typically associated with solenoid modules.

Torque Converter Friction Facings

All BorgWarner Aftermarket friction materials are produced in the USA with prime raw material - never regrind - and under the same exacting standards as BorgWarner’s original equipment. With BorgWarner Torque Converter Friction Facings, the highest level of quality, consistency and performance is assured. Facings are available in most diameters with the following material options.

BorgWarner HTE™

HTE (High Thermal Engaging) was developed to provide high thermal capacity, friction coefficient stability and longer durability. HTE is available in 1.1mm (0.045”) and 1.7mm (0.066”) thicknesses and is grey - black in color.

BorgWarner HTS™

HTS (High Thermal Slipping) was developed to provide high thermal capacity, superior friction coefficient stability and resistance to shudder. HTS is available in 1.1mm (0.045”) and 1.7mm (0.066”) thicknesses and is grey - green in color.

BorgWarner HTL™

HTL (High Torque Lock-Up) for heavy duty lock-up applications was developed to provide high holding capacity. HTL is available in 1.7mm (0.066”) thickness and is light brown in color.

BorgWarner XTL™

XTL (Extreme Torque Lock-Up) for extreme duty lock-up applications that require extreme holding capacity was developed for industrial power take off applications, it offers 30%+ more torque holding capacity than HTL. XTL is available in 1.3mm (0.050”) thickness and is dark grey - black in color.

Torque Converter Friction Plates

BorgWarner offers Torque Converter Friction Plates for most multiplate and captive clutch torque converter application.

Torque Converter Sprag Clutches

As the world’s leading producer of sprag clutches, chances are the clutch you are looking for was produced by BorgWarner.

HY-VO® Transmission Chains

Compared with gear drives, HY-VO® chain drives offer lower cost, reduced axial load, lower noise, improved efficiency and greater center distance tolerance. Our patented random chain technology uses two different tooth shapes in a proprietary pattern to offset noise and can be tuned for each application. Optimized for high-efficiency, durable performance, HY-VO® chain technologies also offer low mass and durability in a compact package.

4WD Transfer Case Components

Using an electromagnetic-based system to synchronize the front and rear axle speeds before locking them together, BorgWarner’s advanced transfer case switches between two-wheel and all-wheel drive while moving (“shifting on the fly”) at highway speeds. Unlike conventional mechanical synchronization systems, this robust, high-performance solution provides a smooth, quiet and consistent transition from two-wheel to all-wheel drive. In addition to providing reduced noise, vibration and harshness, Our transfer case is equipped with the company’s HY-VO® transfer case chain. Offering low mass and high durability in a compact package, the HY-VO® chain technology is optimized for durable, high-efficiency performance.

HY-VO® Transfer Case Chains

Transfer cases and power take-off units (PTUs) for four-wheel (4WD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) applications. Compared with gear drives, HY-VO® chain drives offer lower cost, reduced axial load, lower noise, improved efficiency and greater center distance tolerance. Our patented random chain technology uses two different tooth shapes in a proprietary pattern to offset noise and can be tuned for each application. Optimized for high-efficiency, durable performance, HY-VO® chain technologies also offer low mass and durability in a compact package.
