High-tech supplier Cosworth to showcase at Engine Expo 2013

British high-performance engineering company Cosworth will next month showcase a number of core capabilities and innovative new powertrain technologies at Engine Expo 2013.
Taking place at Germany’s Messe Stuttgart on June 4, 5 and 6, highlights include the company’s aggressive downsizing and boosting technologies, which have enabled the high-tech supplier to successfully develop downsized pressure charged automotive engines that are capable of in excess of 300ps/l. This new technology is supported by Cosworth’s new distributor agreement with Eaton superchargers, which focuses on the bespoke integration and supply of Eaton superchargers to engine manufacturers for low volume applications.
Cosworth has invested heavily in its manufacturing plant to both reduce costs and increase production volumes. Twinned with Cosworth’s experience of component manufacturing within the motorsport arena, these factors, says the company, make it an ideal partner for niche volume component manufacturing.
Also on display at Engine Expo 2013 from Cosworth will be the company’s range of electronics components, which are highly suited to powertrain development and testing. With a focus on efficiency improvement, emissions reduction, weight reduction and drivability optimization, Cosworth uses its experience of high-performance powertrain innovation to offer small package subsystem analysis and development work, through to full turnkey engine programs.
