INNOVATIVE NEW POWERTRAIN MOUNTS USE MAGNETO RHEOLOGICAL FLUIDS TO IMPROVE PERFORMANCE, SAFETY AND REFINEMENT   Print  
Delphi?s new MR Mount is the first technology that allows precise real-time management of all the relevant frequencies created by an automotive powertrain. Thursday, 9th July 2009

Now entering production for a prestigious European supercar, the new mounts use computer-controlled fluid to absorb more engine vibrations and help control powertrain movement during rapid direction changes

Paris, France – A ground-breaking new powertrain mount has been developed by Delphi Corporation (PINKSHEETS: DPHIQ). Using magneto rheological (MR) fluid that can change its dynamic rate in real time, the new MR Mount prevents the build-up of resonance in a system by maintaining control of the mounted mass across all appropriate frequencies. As well as significantly reducing powertrain noise and vibration, the new mount can improve vehicle performance and stability and help isolate the occupants from torque step events such as those generated by start-stop operation.
