New ultra-light forged wheel range uses Alcoa blanks to ensure minimum weight with optimum strength   Print  
Eco Super Light wheels will be available in 19, 20, 21 and 22 inch diameters to fit a range of powerful sports cars Wednesday, 26th May 2010

New manufacturing technique reduces vehicle weight by around 16kg compared with cast 19 inch wheels.

A new range of premium forged aluminium wheels that use Alcoa blank technologies is being launched by Solomon Alsberg. The blanks allow these wheels to be substantially lighter, reducing both unsprung weight and total vehicle weight. Available in sizes from 19 to 22 inches, the new Eco Super Light range is expected to prove popular for a wide range of demanding applications, from race cars to high performance road cars, where its low mass and substantially reduced rotational inertia will improve handling, sharpen steering response, improve acceleration and reduce both fuel consumption and vehicle emissions.

Federal-Mogul Extends Its Range of Powder Metallurgy Materials For Bushings and Guides   Print  
Federal-Mogul?s expertise in powder metallurgy allows them to develop new materials that are precisely matched to the increasingly demanding requirements of turbocharger and EGR components for downsized engines Wednesday, 12th May 2010

High-performance materials help improve turbocharger durability in demanding downsized engine applications

Southfield, Michigan, May 12, 2010 … Federal-Mogul Corporation (NASDAQ:FDML) is extending its materials range for bushings and guides designed specifically for use at the very high temperatures increasingly found in turbochargers and Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) components.  Turbocharging is already almost universal on diesel engines and will become even more common in gasoline applications as engineers improve fuel consumption and emissions by designing downsized engines that have higher specific outputs.  The new materials will allow Federal-Mogul to produce components that meet the very tough durability targets imposed by the increasingly severe conditions seen in this new generation of downsized, low CO2 engines.

Volcanic ash disruption highlights need for OEMs to reinforce contingency plans for extended supply chains   Print  
Emergency logistics specialist Evolution Time Critical reports a surge in requests for time critical deliveries as a result of the closure of UK air space Tuesday, 4th May 2010

With the recent closure of UK air space still causing disruption to automotive supply chains, Evolution Time Critical has been active in facilitating urgent deliveries to car makers from distant international suppliers

Repercussions from April’s volcanic ash disruption continue to cause problems for vehicle manufacturers, many of whom operate extended supply chains with Tier 2 components suppliers often situated in distant locations. Emergency logistics specialist Evolution Time Critical reports a surge in requests for time critical deliveries both during the closure of UK air space and in the following week, as airlines struggle to cope with a backlog of thousands of tonnes of cargo as well as thousands of stranded passengers. The company’s managing director, Brad Brennan, has observed that the episode clearly demonstrates the need for more extensive contingency planning among car makers, in order to prevent costly line stoppages.
