Profile: BorgWarner Inc (BWA)
2 Dec 2016
BorgWarner Inc., incorporated on May 4, 1987, is a supplier of engineered automotive systems and components primarily for powertrain applications. The Company operates through two segments: Engine and Drivetrain. The Engine segment's products include turbochargers, timing devices and chains, emissions systems and thermal systems. The Drivetrain segment's products include transmission components and systems, all-wheel drive (AWD) torque transfer systems and rotating electrical devices. The Company manufactures and sells the products across the world, to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of light vehicles (passenger cars, sport-utility vehicles (SUVs), vans and light trucks). The Company sells the products to other OEMs of commercial vehicles (medium-duty trucks, heavy-duty trucks and buses) and off-highway vehicles (agricultural and construction machinery and marine applications). The Company manufactures and sells its products to certain Tier One vehicle systems suppliers and into the aftermarket for light, commercial and off-highway vehicles. The Company operates manufacturing facilities serving customers in the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia.
The Engine segment develops and manufactures products for gasoline and diesel engines, and alternative powertrains. Its products include turbochargers, timing systems, emissions systems, thermal systems, thermostats, diesel cold start and gasoline ignition technology. The Engine segment provides turbochargers for light, commercial and off-highway applications for diesel and gasoline engine manufacturers in the Americas, Europe and Asia. It designs and manufactures turbo actuators using integrated electronics to control turbocharger speed and pressure ratio. The Engine segment's turbocharger technologies include its regulated two-stage turbocharging system, known asR2S, regulated three-stage turbocharging systems (R3S), variable turbine geometry (VTG) turbochargers and turbochargers for gasoline direct injected engines. Its timing systems products include timing chain, variable cam timing (VCT), crankshaft and camshaft sprockets, tensioners, guides and snubbers, HY-VO front-wheel drive (FWD) transmission chain and four-wheel drive (4WD) chain for light vehicles. The Engine segment is a manufacturer of timing systems to OEMs around the world.
The Engine segment's emissions and systems products include electric air pumps and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) coolers, EGR tubes and EGR valves for gasoline and diesel applications. Its thermal systems products include viscous fan drives that sense and respond to multiple cooling requirements, polymer fans and coolant pumps. The Engine segment's ignition systems products include glow plugs and instant starting systems that manage the combustion process for diesel engines during cold starts, pressure sensor glow plugs that also monitor the combustion process of a diesel engine and ignition technology for gasoline engines.
The Company competes with IHI, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), Schaeffler Group, Tsubaki Group, Usui, Xuelong, Cummins Turbo Technology, Honeywell, Mahle, Denso, Bosch, Eldor, T.RAD, Pierburg, NGK, Iwis and Horton.
The Drivetrain segment develops and manufactures products for automatic transmissions and AWD vehicles and rotating electrical components for light and commercial vehicle OEMs and the aftermarket. The Drivetrain segment's mechanical products include friction, mechanical and controls products for automatic transmissions and torque management products for AWD vehicles, and its rotating electrical components include starter motors, alternators and hybrid electric motors. Friction and mechanical products for automatic transmissions include dual clutch modules, friction clutch modules, friction and steel plates, transmission bands, torque converter clutches, one-way clutches and torsional vibration dampers. Its controls products for automatic transmissions include electro-hydraulic solenoids for standard and high pressure hydraulic systems, transmission solenoid modules and dual clutch control modules. The Drivetrain segment's torque management products include rear-wheel drive (RWD)-AWD transfer case systems, FWD-AWD coupling systems and cross-axle coupling systems. The Drivetrain segment focuses on developing electronically controlled torque management devices and systems. The Drivetrain Segment is involved in the AWD market for FWD based vehicles with couplings that use electronically-controlled clutches to distribute power to the rear wheels as traction is required. The Drivetrain segment's Centrifugal Electro-Hydraulic (CEH) Actuator is utilized to engage the clutches in the coupling. The CEH Actuator is found in the AWD coupling featured in FWD-AWD vehicles, BMW X1, Range Rover Evoque, Volvo XC90 and VW Tiguan. Its DualTronic technology enables a manual gearbox to function as a fully automatic transmission by managing the interruption in power flow that occurs when shifting a single clutch manual transmission. The Company sells new starters, alternators and hybrid electric motors to OEMs globally for factory installation on new vehicles, and remanufactured and new starters and alternators to aftermarket customers and to OEMs for original equipment service.
The Company competes with American Axle, GKN Driveline, Denso, Bosch, Schaeffler Group, Melco, JTEKT, Magna Powertrain, FCC and Dynax.
