BorgWarner supplies engine timing technologies locally for new VW engines in Mexico

BorgWarner has begun manufacturing its advanced engine timing systems in El Salto, Mexico, providing localized production for Volkswagen’s third-generation 2-liter and 1.8-liter DOHC l4 engines built at VW’s new engine plant in Silao, Mexico.
Developed by Audio, the gasoline engines power the VW Jetta and Beetle as well as other models designated for the US market. Initially, VW is expected to build over 300,000 engines per year at its new engine plant in Mexico, with potential for higher volumes in the future. BorgWarner will support these engines with local manufacturing in Europe and Asia.
“BorgWarner’s advanced engine timing technologies reduce friction and weight to help improve fuel economy,” said Joe Fadool, vice president and general manager, BorgWarner Morse TEC. “We value our long relationship with Volkswagen and are pleased to provide localized production to support its expansion into the North American market.”
The company’s advanced engine timing technologies include silent chains and hydraulic tensioners. BorgWarner’s inverted tooth silent chains for engine timing, countershaft and oil pumps utilize proprietary Super Finish Aperture (SFA) and vanadium carbide pin coating technology. Using patented flow-tuning technology with a pressure relief valve, BorgWarner’s modular hydraulic tensioners balance chain tension and optimize control over the entire engine operating range.
