Röchling and DSM: Automotive Innovation Award 2012

Röchling Automotive, Mannheim, Germany, and DSM, Singapore, are celebrating the 2012 Automotive Innovation Award (Powertrain Segment) from the Society of Plastics Engineers –Europe. The award was received for the first serial production of a DSM Akulon based Air-intake Manifold (AIM) with an integrated liquid charged air cooler (LCAC).

This advance, utilizing Akulon polyamide (PA) from DSM, offers space, weight, and cost-saving advantages, and increased engine responsiveness. As a result it contributes to cost effective, high performance and reliable engines with high torque, low fuel consumption and minimal CO2 emissions.

The integrated system, developed by Röchling and Volkswagen (VW), achieved a 20% reduction in the number of parts, weight and costs, compared to similar turbo charged engines with air-to-air charged air coolers. Furthermore, the compact solution creates a 40% reduction in engine compartment package space and air volume which translates into more engine design freedom and virtually eliminates turbo lag.
