DELPHI INTRODUCES WIRELESS ELECTRONIC DEVICE FOR RAPID AND ACCURATE MOT TESTING   Print  
The Delphi MOT Test Master offers technicians a straightforward, paperless approach to MOT testing with the option to upload results directly to their vehicle test station, saving time and improving accuracy Thursday, 25th March 2010

Offers technicians a straightforward, paperless approach to MOT testing with the option to upload results directly to their vehicle test station, saving time and improving accuracy.
The device can also be used as a comprehensive diagnostic tool.

WARWICK - Delphi is introducing a wireless electronic test tool to help technicians improve their accuracy while performing a Ministry of Transportation (MOT) test. The Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA)-approved Delphi MOT Test Master offers technicians the opportunity to conduct the annual test of automobile safety, roadworthiness and exhaust emissions for vehicles  three years and older rapidly and efficiently without recording any data on paper. Instead technicians simply enter all test results on the wireless handheld device as the test progresses.

XPart?s Close Call team cuts MG Rover repair costs with reductions on high value mechanical parts   Print  
XPart?s Close Call team is offering discounts on high value mechanical parts required to keep MG Rovers on the road in the event of a major mechanical breakdown Wednesday, 24th March 2010

MG Rover parts specialist XPart is offering price reductions on mechanical parts required to keep MG Rovers on the road in the event of a major mechanical breakdown

XPart’s Close Call team is offering price reductions on high value mechanical parts required to repair MG Rover cars affected by a major mechanical breakdown. The new reductions have been introduced in order to ensure that repairing an MG Rover car is less costly to owners and insurers than declaring it a total loss. Close Call has traditionally focussed on price reductions for crash repair items, however, in line with XPart’s continuing drive to slow the decline of the MG Rover car parc, the team has expanded its reach to encompass components such as engines, gearboxes and cylinder heads, in the event of engine or gearbox failure or complex engine rebuilds.

Federal Mogul?s Innovative IROXTM Bearing Shell Design Enables Fuel Consumption and CO2 Reduction by Increasing Reliability of High-Output, Hybrid and Stop-Start Engines   Print  
The IROX? bearing overlay can help increase the life of crankshafts and bearing shells by more than five times in more extreme applications, such as direct-injected engines and engines with stop-start systems. Tuesday, 23rd March 2010

New IROXTM coating increases bearing durability by more than five times

Southfield, Michigan, March 23, 2010… Federal-Mogul Corporation (NASDAQ: FDML) has expanded the performance capabilities of engine bearings by developing an innovative polymer coated bearing shell that can reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by withstanding mechanical loads produced by heavily boosted engines.  Called IROX™, the new technology addresses the lubrication challenges associated with frequent engine re-starts found in hybrid and other future stop-start engines by protecting both the crankshaft and the bearing shells from damage where metal-to-metal contact would otherwise occur.  It is estimated that the IROX bearing overlay can help increase the life of crankshafts and bearing shells by more than five times in more extreme applications, such as direct-injected engines and engines with stop-start systems.

Federal-Mogul?s Breakthrough in Crankshaft Seal Design Offers Fuel Savings and Reduced CO2 Emissions   Print  
Cross-section of a MicroTorq seal showing the double hinge construction that gives the seal its outstanding ability to accommodate shaft movement and generate very low contact friction. Thursday, 18th March 2010

New MicroTorq™ seals can directly replace existing seals to provide significant improvement in fuel economy and CO2 emissions

Southfield, Michigan, March 18, 2010… Federal-Mogul Corporation (NASDAQ: FDML), a leading global supplier of technologies that enhance safety and improve powertrain efficiency, has developed an innovative new seal design, called MicroTorq™, that reduces friction by up to 70 percent versus conventional lip-type seals.  The new seal can provide an improvement in vehicle fuel economy of up to 0.49 percent and a reduction in CO2 emissions of 1-2 g/km compared to traditional seal designs.  The seals are also easier to install, more accommodating of shaft misalignment or eccentricity, and require less package space.  The many benefits can be achieved relatively simply, even on existing engines as the new MicroTorq seal can be utilized without changing the design of adjacent components.
