Concepts NREC Knows Turbochargers

We have broad experience working on automotive, truck, train, and marine vessel turbochargers. 

Turbochargers are being applied to more and more engines because they enable higher power densities, which means manufacturers can use smaller engines for improved fuel economy. This downsizing and boosting strategy produces a higher level of torque at low engine speeds. Then the powertrain's transmission ratios can be altered to run the engine at lower engine speeds. Downspeeding, as it is called, reduces the overall fuel consumption and COemissions.

Concepts NREC offers a complete solution for the most challenging issues, including range extension, increased efficiency and engine matching. Our Agile Engineering Design System® software is used by major OEMs, including BorgWarner, Daimler, and Volvo to design their world-class turbochargers.

Our MAX-PAC CAM software is used by major manufacturers worldwide to create efficient tooling paths that ensure optimized manufacturability - saving them time and money on their high production parts.
