AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BorgWarner produces the two-speed, part-time four-wheel drive transfer case for the 2014 Toyota Tundra pickup truck. Featuring BorgWarner's proven electronic shift-on-the-fly technology, the transfer case delivers quick, smooth shifts between two-wheel and four-wheel drive with the turn of a dial. Providing transfer cases manufactured at its facility in Seneca, South Carolina, BorgWarner is Toyota's sole transfer case supplier for the Tundra in North America.
"Toyota's decision to localize this key driveline component with BorgWarner confirms our strong reputation as one of the world's premier transfer case suppliers for the automotive industry," said Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner TorqTransfer Systems. "BorgWarner's product leadership extends from engineering through production, culminating in smooth product launches. We are pleased to support Toyota's manufacturing facility in Texas with our high-quality, proven technologies."
To switch between two-wheel and four-wheel drive while moving (or "shifting-on-the-fly"), BorgWarner's transfer case uses an electromagnetic-based synchronization system to synchronize the front and rear axle speeds before locking them together. Unlike conventional mechanical synchronization systems, BorgWarner's electromagnetic-based system provides a smooth, quiet and consistent transition from two-wheel to four-wheel drive.
The transfer case featured in the Toyota Tundra is equipped with BorgWarner's HY-VO® transfer case chain. Optimized for high-efficiency, durable performance, HY-VO chain technology also offers low mass and durability in a compact package.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.
