Company history[edit] The original Borg-Warner Corporation was formed in 1928[1] by the merger of Warner Gear,[1] which itself was founded by Thomas Warner in 1901,[1] and Borg & Beck[1] founded by Charles Borg and Marshall Beck in 1903,[1] Marvel Schelber Carburetor
Carburetor
Co founded in 1905 by George Schebler and the Mechanics Universal Joint Co. The company was best known as the supplier of Warner Gear overdrive units for cars of the 1930s to the 1970s,[11] and as the developer of Studebaker's three-speed automatic transmission introduced in 1950,[1] along with 'Holley' brand Borg & Beck carburetors.[1] Ford took up development of the transmission in Studebaker's place in 1955. The early Ford automatics are derivatives of the Borg Warner. The Warner Gear name was still being used for the marine and industrial transmissions supplied by Borg Warner under the trade name 'Velvet Drive' into the 1980s. The 'Velvet Drive' production was transferred to Regal-Beloit Corporation in 1995, who trade as "Velvet Drive Transmissions". In the 21st century, the company changed the styling of its name from Borg-Warner to BorgWarner. The company is also notable for co-developing a variable-geometry turbocharger with Porsche, the Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) system, used in the 2007 911 Turbo.[12] BorgWarner
BorgWarner
claims this technology will reach mainstream cars within 10 years.[12] From 2002, Peugeot, Ford and Renault
Renault
became major customers for the company's turbochargers[1] with the Volkswagen Group
Volkswagen Group
on-board since 1999, choosing to exclusively use the BorgWarner
BorgWarner
K-Series turbochargers for their then-new 1.8T power plant. BorgWarner
BorgWarner
supplies wet clutches and hydraulic modules for dual-clutch transmission systems. With their DualTronic[1] technology, BorgWarner has gained contracts with European automakers[1] that want to use dual clutch transmissions. The German automotive concern Volkswagen Group is BorgWarner's largest customer (by sales),[8] and Europe is their largest market.[8] Light vehicles (automobiles, car-derived vans, and light commercial vehicles) account for 72% of BorgWarner's total sales.[8] The company's world headquarters is in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Robert S. Ingersoll formerly served as the company's CEO and Chairman. BorgWarner's Powertrain
Powertrain
Technical Center (PTC) is also based in Auburn Hills. The BorgWarner

auto racing event; this has been provided by the company since 1936,[13][14] as a legacy of Louie Schwitzer who won the first automobile racing event held at the facility, in 1909.[1] It was announced by the Izod Indycar Series that BorgWarner has been selected as the official supplier for the turbochargers to be used in the 2.2L turbocharged engine formula for the series which took effect in 2012[citation needed]. On October 2, 2006, BorgWarner announced the purchase of the European Transmission and Engine Controls product lines from Eaton Corporation. Company structure[edit] In 2002, BorgWarner
BorgWarner
Inc. was split into two key business divisions:[1]

BorgWarner
BorgWarner
Engine Group:[7] This is responsible for the research and development of the company's internal combustion engine-related components, along with operational efficiency, including fuel consumption, emissions and performance. Key products are turbochargers and other related engine operation components.[7] BorgWarner
BorgWarner
Drivetrain Group:[7] The fundamental core of this division is its automotive transmission systems. These include manual transmissions, automatic transmissions, and the critically acclaimed DualTronic dual clutch transmission, which is more commonly known as Volkswagen Group's Direct-Shift Gearbox. Other responsibilities are its four-wheel drive systems and transmission electronic control units.[7]

Multi-plate clutch coupling. The ITM 3e multi-plate clutch coupling is used in the Hyundai Santa Fe, Hyundai Tucson
Hyundai Tucson
and Porsche
Porsche
911. In normal conditions, it sends up to 95% of the torque to the front wheels. In the case of the Hyundais, the system can be locked in a 50:50 split so that you have a more dedicated off-road system. The system can be locked with the '4WD LOCK' button. The ITM 3e uses a multi-plate clutch coupling with magnetic activation

InterActive torque management[18]

Honda's Variable Torque Management-Four Wheel Drive (VTM-4) system was built in partnership with BorgWarner
BorgWarner
and provides a lightweight front-wheel drive system for dry-pavement cruising conditions that engages all-wheel drive (AWD) when needed to improve stability or maneuverability and can support medium duty off-road use via an electromagnetically driven clutch-operated differential. VTM-4 was used on the Acura
Acura
MDX, Honda
Honda

Honda
Ridgeline.[19][20] Honda's Super Handling-All Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system was also built under the joint-venture of Honda
Honda
and Borg-Warner for AWD systems. It acts like the ITM 3e coupling system, but also features a rear torque-vectoring axle
