A Gearbox Development Success Story
As a world leader in drivetrain technology and a company that prides itself on maintaining state-of-the-art products, BorgWarner has extremely high standards of performance and quality. In an effort to develop new markets for their silent chain technology, their Advanced Products division engaged us to assist them develop a completely new transmission.
Our engineers worked alongside BorgWarner’s drivetrain engineers and product development team to clearly identify the new and unique features that a transmission based on silent chain technology afforded potential customers. We then brought in market development expertise from one of our strategic partners to develop two distinct sets of marketing materials.
With this part of the project complete, our efforts then focused on delivering on the concept that had been promoted. KBE+ engineers not only developed the design, completed the analysis, and assisted BorgWarner to procure and assemble the first article; they did it under a highly compressed schedule. Not only were the new deadlines met, but a demonstration vehicle was also readied in time for demonstration at a worldwide transmission conference.
