Borg & Beck has made many new additions to its premium quality Starters, Alternators and Freewheeling Pulleys range which now totals 1,700 part numbers, making it one of the largest surcharge-free Rotating Electrics programme available.
Available on an outright purchase basis, the range provides quality and convenience as there is no complicated surcharge arrangement applied to the price and there is no requirement to return the old ‘core’ unit, which means that workshops can benefit from any scrap value themselves.
All the units in the range have been performance tested and supplied with a certificate of conformity with the unit in its box, along with any fitting tips and instructions where appropriate for those references that are known to be less straightforward to install. As a result, all Borg & Beck Rotating machines come with a 2 year warranty.
The range includes the very latest technology applications with, for example,, Alternators developed for micro-hybrid vehicles fitted with a ‘Stop-Start’ function and those that incorporate water cooling. 70% of new vehicles now incorporate a Stop-start system.
Faced with the twin challenges of producing a high charge output and their installation in increasingly confined spaces, vehicle makes have also introduced water-cooled Alternators. In these units, the requirement for a conventional internal cooling fan has been nullified by connecting them directly to the engine’s cooling system, which is a far more efficient method of heat control. This development is also reflected in the Borg & Beck range.
In order to compensate for the inevitable inertia generated within the Alternator through the constant acceleration/de-acceleration of the engine, VMs have developed the Freewheeling Clutch Pulley. This Pulley helps to prevent damage to the Drive Belt and the associated components within the front-end auxiliary drive system, by reducing the inertia that is caused from the tension/vibration in the Alternator Drive Belt. The Borg & Beck programme therefore also includes an extensive range of Freewheeling Pulleys.
The programme is supported by a comprehensive Borg & Beck Rotating Electrics catalogue packed with application data and other useful information. For more information visit: www.borgandbeck.com
