Exciting Turbo Range Additions from Nissens
The Danish thermal, turbo and efficiency system components manufacturer, Nissens Automotive, continues their ambitious product development strategy. This autumn the company introduced a brand-new product line, as well as a couple of exciting new products within their recently launched Engine Efficiency category.
Next Generation Turbos
As part of further expansion of the Engine Efficiency product category, this summer Nissens Automotive has enhanced their Turbo range with new technology models. E-actuator turbos are variable geometry turbos with electrical control of the VNT mechanism. Two popular Mercedes-Benz engine applications open the E-Actuator list of turbos from Nissens, and 10 new models are on the way.
The newly developed Turbo models represent a much higher complexity than the traditional, pneumatically operated models in the Nissens’ Turbo range. This technological progress is a result of the latest strategy that Nissens has chosen to follow in order to secure high carpark coverage with their products, thus enhancing competitiveness within the turbo offering to newer car applications. The technological step forward in Nissens’ turbo development also required a series of new, advanced production processes. Expanding the company’s own technical know-how and in-house competencies, including the recent establishment of Nissens’ Technology Center in Germany, has markedly contributed to that progress.
Executive Vice President for Nissens Automotive, Klavs T. Pedersen, comments:
“Intensively investing in our in-house expert knowledge in a number of areas including, among others, the field of electrically driven components, has enabled us to elevate the development processes of new technology products to a completely new level. We are fully aware of the recent automotive technology evolution and its related product needs that have emerged in the aftermarket. Today’s vehicles are complex, and their systems and components are controlled digitally. Our natural step in supporting the Independent Aftermarket had to imply a strong focus on technological development. With an enhanced product portfolio and new-generation parts, we wish to maintain a strong commercial position in the market and secure a modern and competitive offering to our business partners.”
New Product Group – Turbo Oil Feed Pipes
Other important news announced by the company is the launch of Turbo Oil Feed Pipes that join the family of Nissens products dedicated to the Engine Efficiency system. The turbo oil feed pipe (OFP) is a part of the turbo system, and it is a component of substantial importance for the system’s proper operation. The OFP is a thin channel connected to the engine lubrication system. Its main function is to secure the appropriate lubrication needed for the turbocharger. The oil feed pipe supplies engine oil from the engine block directly to the turbo’s bearing system, ensuring the turbo shaft’s lubrication and cooling.
Christian Germain Rosendahl, Product Manager, Efficiency & Emission states:
“The turbo oil feed pipe is an important part in the turbo system and plays a crucial role in its proper, trouble-free operation, and the engine’s charge performance. This significant expansion within Nissens’ Engine Efficiency category reflects our aim to support the aftermarket with complete solutions enabling proper system service and maintenance. This also includes the ‘first-time-right’ installation of the turbocharger, which is a very costly process mainly due to the cost of a new turbo. We highly recommend the OFP replacement with any new turbo fitting as it is the only way to prevent severe premature failures related to impaired lubrication. With the attractive and constantly developing range of the OFPs we secure, the mechanics can benefit from a shorter turbo installation process and ensuring that the repair is performed without compromises.”
Nissens’ launch of the Oil Feed Pipes for turbo starts with an initial range of +170 pipe models and will be expanded further. The company’s pipe program today covers 99% of vehicle models to which Nissens offers a suitable turbocharger. The parts are in stock and available by the end of September 2020. All related technical product information, including high-quality pictures, can be found in Nissens’ catalogues as well as in TecDoc.
