BorgWarner has expanded its manufacturing facility at its campus in Ramos-Arizpe, Mexico, to meet increasing demand for emissions technologies in North America.
The facility will produce exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) modules, ignition coils and coolant control valves for gasoline- and diesel-powered passenger cars, minivans and light-duty trucks.
The company says the expansion will increase capacity for current products as well as BorgWarner’s latest advancements in emissions technologies, which help automakers meet emissions standards.
BorgWarner’s gasoline EGR technologies help automakers reduce fuel consumption by recirculating and cooling exhaust gases to reduce combustion temperatures in the engine. BorgWarner’s new EGR module is the first EGR module designed specifically for gasoline engines. With an integrated EGR cooler and EGR valve, BorgWarner’s compact EGR module provides improved packaging, reliability, response and efficiency to optimize exhaust gas recirculation, the company says.
To improve engine performance, fuel economy and emissions, BorgWarner’s compact ignition coil technology facilitates more complete combustion, delivers more ignition energy and generates higher voltage than conventional plug top or pencil ignition coils, the company says. Featuring a compact design, BorgWarner’s coolant control valves help optimize engine temperature to improve efficiency and reduce emissions.
