BorgWarner Supplying Friction Technology for New ZF 8-Speed Automatic Transmission

BorgWarner has been selected to supply its friction materials and plates for the new ZF 8-speed automatic transmission (8HP), debuting on the 2010 BMW 760i. (Earlier post.)

BorgWarner’s friction technology helps reduce drag losses, allowing the transmission to achieve improved fuel economy and performance.

BorgWarner friction plates and materials are used at key clutch positions to meet ZF’ high requirements for efficiency and shift performance. BorgWarner uses an advanced production process to manufacture the multi-segmented friction material produced in Heidelberg, Germany. BorgWarner’s friction plate technology also enables neutral idle control (NIC) to further enhance fuel economy.

In addition to the new 8HP transmission, BorgWarner supplies friction materials and one-way clutches for ZF’s current 6HP transmission models.
