Mahle, a leading international
development partner and supplier to the automotive industry as well as a
pioneer for the mobility of the future, is showcasing new new innovations for
clean air and lower emissions at the Auto Expo 2018. These include new generation
of oil control rings: U-flex piston rings, Mahle liquid management module for
lower emissions- up to two percent less CO2 and a five layer protected CareMetix cabin air filter.
Mahle is also presenting a new
generation of oil control rings to reduce oil ash and particulate emissions in
combustion engines: U-flex piston rings. If oil enters the combustion chamber
of a gasoline engine, oil ash and particulate emissions are produced. With
U-flex piston rings, Mahle lowers particulate emissions and oil ash by up to 30
percent. The number and mass of particles decreases as a result, and the
particulate filter generates less counter pressure—reducing CO2 emissions over
the vehicle’s lifetime.
The Mahle liquid management
module is a combination of electric coolant pump for 12 or 48 volts and cooling
circuit control. The benefits of this module are short warm-up phases for
combustion engine cold starts, rapid control of coolant flows, and control of
several circuits at different temperature levels for different components using
just one pump. The module allows CO2 savings of up to two percent, with minimal
package requirements. The module can also be used in electric vehicles. The
advantages here are likewise a simpler systems architecture and greater
More than 100,000 litres of
air are swept into the cabin every hour when a vehicle is in operation. The new
CareMetix cabin air filter from Mahle has five layers to protect against solid
matter and gas particles from the ambient air, while also reliably eliminating odours.
In the process, CareMetix keeps all stresses to the respiratory tracts of all
passengers to a new minimum. The CareMetix demonstrator will give visitors to
the Mahle stand a chance to experience the filter’s superb performance
Mahle is also showcasing innovative
technologies for control and power electronics at the Auto Expo 2018. The
group’s newest product division enables Mahle to supply, for example, the
complete traction system with integrated control from a single source. The
AC/DC on-board charging unit allows for fast, reliable, and flexible charging
of electric vehicles—independently of the power grid.
The product portfolio of Mahle
Nagares S.A., newly acquired by the group in 2017, comprises control and power
electronics for electric auxiliary components and thermal management systems,
as well as power converters for e-mobility solutions. In conjunction with Mahle’s
existing business segments, product developments will include integrated
powertrain solutions for hybrid and electric vehicles as well as
battery-charging technologies. Mahle also offers control electronics for
high-voltage heaters, which ensure the safe and highly efficient heating of the
interior and batteries of electric vehicles.
Mahle 48-volt vehicle concept MEET: The new vehicle concept MEET (Mahle
Efficient Electric Transport) is systematically aligned to the needs of urban
mobility. The Mahle concept combines maximum efficiency, individual comfort,
driving pleasure—and is still affordable. The MEET demonstrator vehicle
includes a highly integrated drive unit, which combines motor and electronics
in one housing. This reduces costs and package and is only possible by
combining the competences in electronics, electric motor, and thermal
E-compressors for different power classes: With the newly developed
e-compressors, Mahle is also a full-line supplier in air conditioning systems
for electric vehicles. The electric compressor is the heart of the air
conditioning system, which Mahle has developed in both 400- and 800-volt
versions—for diverse power classes and a wide array of applications.
Mahle diagnostic and service solutions: Mahle Service Solutions, a
division of Mahle Aftermarket is a pioneer in vehicle testing, diagnostics and
service equipment. Mahle actively
supports OEMs in tooling their factories with proper test stations so their
vehicles are built with high quality in compliance of local government
regulations for safety and emissions. Mahle
Service Solutions leverages the same architecture to develop diagnostic tools
which helps OEM dealers and Independent Aftermarket workshops to diagnose and
repair vehicles accurately.
