BorgWarner BERU Systems GmbH
BorgWarner BERU Systems is specialised in diesel cold-start technology, ignition technology, automobile electronics and sensor systems. Ever since the company was founded in 1912, it has been a company principle to develop innovative products, in close association with the automobile manufacturers, and to identify and move into new niches revealing promising technologies. Outstanding product quality, uncompromising customer orientation, technical flexibility and rapid realisation of new ideas are the key factors of the company's success.
Products and services
The range of products manufactured and marketed by BERU Systems worldwide comprises of spark plugs and glow plugs, ignition coils and ignition cables, tyre pressure monitoring systems, media heaters, high-temperature sensors and flame starting systems for large diesel engines. In cooperation with the automobile manufacturers, this range is continually being extended and thus adapted to the prevailing market conditions. On an international scale, BERU Systems customers include the most renowned manufacturers of automobiles and engines. In the field of glow plugs, BERU Systems is one of the world market leaders. With its branded products of original equipment quality, the company also supplies the aftermarket.
Research & development
During the past few years, intensive research and development work in this area has been highly successful, resulting in outstanding new products with which BERU Systems can justifiably claim technology leadership. The combustion process can be controlled directly with BERU Systems's intelligent Pressure Sensor Glow plug (PSG), allowing combustion with lower emissions. Cabin heaters (PTC) compensate the disadvantage of reduced waste heat of modern hybrid, electric and combustion engines to ensure effective vehicle heating; the Tyre Safety System (TSS) permanently monitors the tyre pressure, and is increasingly in demand as a safety and comfort feature in vehicles. New, lightweight plug top ignition coils utilise new magnetic circuitry technology, resulting in reduced part size necessary to meet the tight installation requirements of modern downsized engines. In addition to being more compact, this new ignition technology produces higher combustion energy and greater ignition voltage. High-temperature sensors (HTS) constantly provide actual exhaust temperatures to the engine control unit (ECU) - eg, to precisely control fuel enrichment for particulate filter regeneration. Designed with an innovative 'bowl' contact, new double platinum spark plugs optimise the connection between the plug top coil and the spark plug for dependable starts and efficient combustion. A highly specialised BERU Systems team is exclusively responsible for preliminary development, investigating the applicability of new technical process and new materials.
For decades now, BERU Systems has been a reliable supplier to the automobile industry, delivering components directly to the production lines of the manufacturers. Direct supply aims at achieving so-called 'zero error'. This requires the most precise production processes, the principle of continuous improvement and maintenance of the highest standards of quality. For this reason, all production locations of BERU Systems are certified to DIN ISO 9001, as well as ISO/TS 16949, version 2009. Furthermore, the demands of the environmental standard ISO 14001 are demonstrably fulfilled.
