New technology improved camshaft phaser stator in BMW engine

At the beginning of this story, there was basic reserach on pressing of powder mixtures of aluminium alloys. It is that type of reserach which many of taxpayers don't like because it is oriented to gain only new knowledge regardles of its usefulness for a particular application.

In our case, the previously gained knowledge enabled development of new mass production technology of camshaft phaser stator ring for BMW engine, in cooperation with our partners SHW GmbH, Wasseralfingen Germany and Alulight GmbH, Ranshofen Austria. Our technology enabled replacement of the classic steel phaser stator by a lighter aluminium one in BMW engine. The mass production of 300 000 pieces per year ran in Sapa Profily a.s. Slovakia (today Hydro).
