BorgWarner passes technology milestone

BorgWarner has revealed the passing of a production milestone at its European facilities, with over five million DCT modules produced for Volkswagen’s DQ250 transmission.

The company has been producing the modules since 2003 for a range of cars within the Volkswagen Group’s brands, including the VW Golf, Skoda Octavia and Audi Q3.

BorgWarner says its DualTronic technology consists of a dual-clutch module manufactured in Arnstadt, Germany, and a control module produced in Tulle, France. The module uses two wet clutches in an oil bath to engage the odd and even gears, to allow shifts within fractions of a second with no perceptible interruption of the power flow.

The control module also uses compact electro-hydraulic solenoid valves to precisely regulate the clutch and the transmission’s gearshift actuation system. Tunable launch characteristics, high thermal robustness and scalable torque capacity have made it usable in a range of different applications.

“During the last few years, our leading manufacturing plants for DCT technology in Arnstadt and Tulle have enhanced their production capacities to meet the increasing demand for our advanced transmission solutions. We are very proud to announce the production of over five million DualTronic clutch and control modules for Volkswagen,” said Robin Kendrick, president and general manager of BorgWarner Transmission Systems.
