Münster, Germany As “the world’s largest automobile trade fair,” this year’s 65th anniversary IAA (Sept. 12-22, 2013, Messe Frankfurt) is looking to set new standards.
Representatives of the automotive industry will converge on the world’s leading automobile show with the aim of discussing trends and developments for the technology of the future.
Fluid management and modern filtration solutions will be offered by Hengst Automotive at stand A28, Hall 5.1.
Topics will include overviews of technology’s contributions to achieving greater efficiency, resource conservation and economic viability. The company will give an overview of its product portfolio and tailor- made solutions for original equipment.
Working in cooperation with customer partners throughout the automotive industry, Hengst delivers industry leading filter and fluid management modules that satisfy current and future requirements while exceeding quality, durability and efficiency expectations, the company says.
Hengst’s comprehensive development resources and expertise in engineering, design, testing, tooling, materials and manufacturing result in innovative turn-key production solutions for the world automotive market.
One example of the company’s capabilities is the S614H multi-functional module which Hengst developed for the new 1.6 SIDI turbo engine in the Opel Cascada. Using a die-cast aluminum housing manufactured at the company’s foundry located in Nordwalde, the module provides oil and coolant via quick connectors to the engine’s turbocharger to create an incredibly compact package.
The cooling circuit is supplied by means of an intelligent interplay between a water pump and an electrically controlled characteristic map. A highly efficient oil/water heat exchanger constantly keeps the heat balance of the engine oil in equilibrium. In addition, the multi-functional module provides the turbocharger with oil and coolant via quick connectors.
The next generation of this Opel engine will integrate Hengst oil filters into the module. These filters have been validated on the company’s modern test equipment. As a testament to confidence in design, Hengst assumes full tier-1 responsibility for this module.
