Federal-Mogul Extends Its Range of Powder Metallurgy Materials For Bushings and Guides   Print  
Federal-Mogul?s expertise in powder metallurgy allows them to develop new materials that are precisely matched to the increasingly demanding requirements of turbocharger and EGR components for downsized engines Wednesday, 12th May 2010

High-performance materials help improve turbocharger durability in demanding downsized engine applications

Southfield, Michigan, May 12, 2010 … Federal-Mogul Corporation (NASDAQ:FDML) is extending its materials range for bushings and guides designed specifically for use at the very high temperatures increasingly found in turbochargers and Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) components.  Turbocharging is already almost universal on diesel engines and will become even more common in gasoline applications as engineers improve fuel consumption and emissions by designing downsized engines that have higher specific outputs.  The new materials will allow Federal-Mogul to produce components that meet the very tough durability targets imposed by the increasingly severe conditions seen in this new generation of downsized, low CO2 engines.

Volcanic ash disruption highlights need for OEMs to reinforce contingency plans for extended supply chains   Print  
Emergency logistics specialist Evolution Time Critical reports a surge in requests for time critical deliveries as a result of the closure of UK air space Tuesday, 4th May 2010

With the recent closure of UK air space still causing disruption to automotive supply chains, Evolution Time Critical has been active in facilitating urgent deliveries to car makers from distant international suppliers

Repercussions from April’s volcanic ash disruption continue to cause problems for vehicle manufacturers, many of whom operate extended supply chains with Tier 2 components suppliers often situated in distant locations. Emergency logistics specialist Evolution Time Critical reports a surge in requests for time critical deliveries both during the closure of UK air space and in the following week, as airlines struggle to cope with a backlog of thousands of tonnes of cargo as well as thousands of stranded passengers. The company’s managing director, Brad Brennan, has observed that the episode clearly demonstrates the need for more extensive contingency planning among car makers, in order to prevent costly line stoppages.

Resourceful emergency logistics team saves car manufacturer two million euros in stoppage time   Print  
Evolution Time Critical has saved a major vehicle manufacturer two million euros by delivering a shipment of seat belt retractors weighing 221kg from Poland to Turkey in less than 24 hours Tuesday, 13th April 2010

By using a unique combination of road, air charter and onboard courier, Evolution Time Critical has helped to prevent a major automotive production line from stopping by facilitating an urgent door to door delivery from Poland to Turkey

Resourceful emergency logistics analysts have helped to prevent a major car manufacturer from stopping production by using a unique combination of road, air charter and onboard courier to transport 20 boxes of seat belt retractors weighing 221kg from Poland to Turkey. Having received the urgent enquiry late one afternoon, the Evolution Time Critical’s team quickly learnt that the parts already delivered by the manufacturer’s supplier were faulty and waiting for a standard delivery would delay production by two days. Since the carmaker in question runs two cars down the same production line, halting the line would be a highly expensive exercise. With a hefty potential bill of one million euros per day for the line, the manufacturer faced penalties of two million euros if the parts were not received in time. Given that retrofitting the parts was not an option, the task of maintaining production would rely heavily on Evolution’s ability to facilitate an urgent delivery.
