Robert Bosch LLC was awarded a 2014 Automotive News PACE™
(Premier Automotive Suppliers’ Contribution to Excellence) Award on
Monday. The company earned recognition for its laser-drilling technology
for spray enhancements in gasoline direct injection in the Product
“Bosch is honored to be recognized as a PACE Award winner and truly
values this significant accomplishment,” said Mike Mansuetti, president,
Robert Bosch LLC. “As an automotive innovation leader, Bosch understands
the critical importance of achieving new vehicle standards and meeting
consumer needs. We strive to create products that enable automakers to
easily adapt to changes in the dynamic automotive landscape, and we have
a great team of associates who value their customer relationships.”
HDEV5 Gasoline Direct-Injection Fuel Injectors With Laser-Drilled
To assist the automotive industry in complying with upcoming emission
standards, Bosch developed laser-drilled spray holes as a performance
enhancement to its HDEV5 gasoline direct-injection fuel injectors.
Bosch’s latest injector offers enhanced spray quality and unprecedented
levels of spray pattern flexibility. It provides automakers with the
precision and customization needed for engines to meet strict emissions
requirements by improving fuel atomization and reducing spray
penetration. Bosch’s laser-drilling process, called ultra-short-pulse
laser drilling, enables a new level of spray shape flexibility, allowing
automakers to efficiently manufacture different hole diameters and
shapes in one nozzle. This innovative product was first launched on the
2012 Audi A3 and in total has been launched with nine customers on 14
In addition to this winning entry, one of Bosch’s other technologies –
NextGen Open-Source Infotainment System – was named a finalist in the
Information Technology category, as previously announced last fall.
NextGen – An Open-Source Infotainment System
Consumers have come to expect infotainment systems to deliver a
smartphone-like experience and easy integration of their favorite apps
in order to interact with the technology in a way that best suits them.
Bosch developed the NextGen Open-Source Infotainment System software to
support automakers in delivering in-vehicle infotainment systems that
meet consumer demands with high functionality and easy integration of
their mobile devices in a practical way.
In addition, automakers are looking to provide new, cost-effective
infotainment systems as quickly as possible to improve the functionality
of consumer electronics in the vehicle. Using a Linux-based operating
system, Bosch’s NextGen Open-Source infotainment system is a
high-performance, cost-effective solution with reduced development time.
The system is featured on the 2013 Cadillac SRX, XTS and ATS.
“Bosch is committed to developing products that are ‘Invented for life’
and aims to shape technologies to meet consumer and automaker needs,”
added Mansuetti. “We work to find innovative solutions to industry
issues and create forward-looking technology to better the lives of
