BorgWarner’s Regulated Three-Stage Turbocharging System, Advanced Compact Brushless Actuator and Visctronic High-Speed Reservoir System Honored as Finalists

Auburn Hills, Michigan, October 18, 2012 – Three BorgWarner technologies have been named finalists for the prestigious 2013 Automotive News PACE Awards:

  • BorgWarner’s regulated three-stage (R3S) turbocharging system combines the benefits of two-stage turbocharging for high specific power output and parallel sequential turbocharging for best drivability. The innovative technology increases power density while improving fuel economy and reducing emissions for downsized diesel engines.
  • BorgWarner’s advanced compact brushless actuator (CBA) is a patented, electronic rotary actuator that precisely controls a variety of functions, including exhaust gas recirculation valves, wastegate valves, variable turbine geometry (VTG) turbochargers and exhaust throttle valves. Engineered to deliver high torque, fast response and excellent durability even in high-temperature environments, the technology helps vehicle makers reduce nitrogen oxide emissions, optimize power and achieve better fuel economy.
  • BorgWarner’s Visctronic® high-speed reservoir (HSR) system provides faster response, increased durability and more precise electronic fan control. Compared with competitive systems, the technology augments the engine power used in the cooling system, allowing for better performance and improved fuel economy.

“BorgWarner’s first-to-market innovations are driving the auto industry forward with technologies engineered to improve fuel economy, reduce emissions and enhance performance,” said Timothy M. Manganello, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, BorgWarner. “We are passionate about developing the next wave of must-have technologies to help engines become more powerful, efficient and environmentally friendly. It is an honor to be among this year’s distinguished PACE finalists once again.”
