BorgWarner unveils new chain

AUBURN HILLS, Minn. – BorgWarner’s next-generation 6.35 mm inverted tooth silent engine timing chains are launching on engines from Mitsubishi, Suzuki, Hyundai, General Motors Korea, and one Chinese automaker.

The innovative engine timing chain is designed to reduce friction, resulting in as much as 0.3 to 0.6 percent improvement in fuel economy based on customer testing.  

The low-friction engine timing chain combines inverted tooth silent chain technology with an optimized link back shape. Compared with conventional technology, the optimized link back shape reduces contact area and friction as the chain slides along the arms and guides, where most friction losses occur.

In addition, super finish apertures enhance wear and efficiency performance, and “E” polishing improves surface finish to reduce friction.

BorgWarner operates a plant in Dixon.
