A GLOBAL PROVIDER WITH LOCAL MARKET KNOWLEDGEGlobal presence Bosch's position is undisputed due to its global access to manufacturing and R&D experts for gasoline direct injection in close proximity to its customers. This proximity to automakers forms the basis for close and flexible collaborations. Due to its local presence, Bosch is familiar with the specific requirements of each market and is able to meet them locally."
SYSTEM PROVIDER WITH DEEP INSIGHTS
System and connectivity expertise Bosch develops and produces innovative drive technology for vehicles with gasoline direct injection as integrated complete systems. As a system provider, Bosch is aware of the exact technical requirements placed on the various components and has expert knowledge of the technical relationships and dependencies within the complete system. The system expertise from Bosch allows optimum system integration of individual components and thus maximum system benefit for consumption and CO2 reduction as well as for engine power output. Bosch's system and network competence also allows for the drive technology to be adapted and integrated exactly to the customer's system requirements. In this way, Bosch helps automakers to reduce the cost of development and testing, get products ready for production earlier and thus reduce costs."
CONTINUOUS SUPPORT FOR GASOLINE DIRECT INJECTION
Reliable partnership As a solid partner to automakers, Bosch offers end-to-end support throughout the entire lifecycle of vehicles with gasoline direct injection. Together with automakers, Bosch works on developing new concepts for engines with gasoline direct injection. Bosch applies the drive technology individually and exactly to the respective customer's requirements and operates its own test centers around the world to conduct joint testing with automakers. Global logistics and large-scale production facilities on all continents ensure fast delivery to the customers. Local contacts, in the Bosch sales offices or as a resident engineer at the manufacturer's facility, provide close customer support on an end-to-end basis. And even after years of using the system in the vehicle, Bosch ensures efficient vehicle diagnosis and spare parts supply for vehicles with gasoline direct injection."
TECHNOLOGY, SERVICE AND KNOW-HOW FROM A SINGLE SOURCE
Comprehensive portfolio and know-how for vehicles, infrastructure, and services Bosch offers a comprehensive range of services for vehicles with gasoline direct injection from a single source. This includes technology for fuel supply, fuel injection, air management, ignition, engine management and exhaust-gas treatment. In addition to individual components, Bosch also offers integrated complete solutions for the gasoline direct injection powertrain system. Downsizing and turbocharging are supplementary solutions for gasoline direct injection that help to further reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions substantially and support the OEM in meeting EU6d. When working with automakers, not only does Bosch bring to bear its comprehensive lineup of technology products and services but also extensive experience and wide-ranging expertise. By the end of 2016, Bosch reached a production landmark, having manufactured 250 million fuel injectors and 50 million high-pressure pumps."
A SERVICE LIFE OF UP TO 240,000 KM
Quality and reliability The quality and reliability of Bosch technology are major factors in bringing technically sophisticated vehicles with gasoline direct injection to the market. Due to the use of stainless steel, today's components in gasoline direct injection boast high fuel compatibility and are therefore designed for global applications. The high-pressure injector and high-pressure pump are designed for a system pressure of up to 350 bar. Bosch technology for gasoline direct injection is designed for a service life of up to 240,000 km, making Bosch a byword for quality and reliability."
INNOVATION DRIVER AND TECHNOLOGY LEADER FOR GASOLINE DIRECT INJECTION
Innovative strength and speed Bosch is the trailblazer in gasoline direct injection. Bosch initially marketed this technology in 1951 for the 2-stroke engine in the Gutbrod Superior compact car. Gasoline direct injection for 4-stroke engines made its debut in the legendary Mercedes-Benz 300 SL three years later, laying the foundations for the further development of modern passenger car gasoline engines with greater power output coupled with reduced fuel consumption and emissions. Bosch's innovations for gasoline direct injection – controlled valve operation, laser-drilled spray holes and the combination of port fuel injection and gasoline direct injection - make a valuable contribution for further potential savings in fuel consumption, CO2 and particulate emissions while optimizing the engine's power output."
