CECO Environmental Solutions Enable Aluminum Manufacturers to Recover and Recycle Industrial Processes

CECO | January 03, 2022

CECO Environmental Solutions Enable Aluminum
On December 30, CECO Environmental Corp., a leading environmentally minded, diversified industrial business, announced that its CECO Busch brand recently provided an integrated, multi-product line aluminum chip-collecting and recycling solution to a top North American manufacturer of aluminum plates, sheets, and extrusions for its new milling machine. The company provides solutions that safeguard people, the environment, and industrial equipment. This system is being built and is scheduled to be completely operational in early 2022.

The integrated system is intended to gather tons of aluminum scrap, a byproduct of aluminum mill production. Aluminum companies generate waste material at a rate of up to 25 tons per hour when they grind the surface of slabs before final rolling. CECO's custom-engineered solution collects and recycles this scrap material by integrating and utilizing the power of CECO technologies such as CECO Flex-Kleen dust collection and CECO Fisher-Klosterman cyclone separation systems.

 "CECO is pleased to provide aluminum manufacturers with advanced solutions to help our customers recover high volumes of aluminum scrap for recycling.” He further added, "Our solutions deliver an efficient way to recycle excess aluminum that is discarded during the manufacturing process, thereby significantly reducing waste, which reduces a manufacturer's impact on the environment and assists with meeting sustainability initiatives. Aluminum manufacturing continues to be critically important to a range of industries, including food and beverage packaging, automotive, aerospace, and construction."

-Todd Gleason, CEO of CECO Environmental

Tenneco to Supply Intelligent Suspension, Anti-Vibration Performance Materials Solutions For Rivian R1T and R1S Electric Vehicles

Tenneco | November 29, 2022

Tenneco has been selected to provide intelligent suspension and anti-vibration performance materials solutions for U.S.-based electric-vehicle manufacturer Rivian Automotive. Tenneco's CVSA2/Kinetic® H2 semi-active suspension technology part of the Monroe® Intelligent Suspension product portfolio and NVH performance materials Clevite® elastomers, will be featured in the all-electric Rivian R1T five-passenger pickup and R1S seven-passenger sport utility vehicle. "Our global engineering teams have worked closely with Rivian and other vehicle manufacturers to achieve new ride performance and NVH reduction targets for battery-electric and hybrid vehicles. We are very pleased that CVSA2/Kinetic® technology has been chosen." -Henrik Johansson, Vice President and General Manager Advanced Suspension Technologies. We are very pleased that Clevite Elastomers products will contribute to the success of Rivian's first two models added Kathleen Pacheco, Vice President and General Manager, NVH Performance Materials. One of several electronic suspension technologies available through Tenneco's Monroe® Intelligent Suspension portfolio, the CVSA2/Kinetic® H2 solution will be integrated with Rivian's flexible "skateboard" chassis, which also houses the vehicle's quad-motors, intelligent battery management system and other components. Originally developed for sport and hypercar models but now also available for performance SUV and light truck platforms, the CVSA2/Kinetic® H2 technology provides continuously controlled damping along with advanced, hydraulic roll control. The suspension's Kinetic® roll control system offers the driver excellent handling agility and comfort and delivers exceptional off-road performance. By eliminating the need for conventional sway bars, the technology helps reduce vehicle weight and decouples single wheel disturbances providing better contact to the road. Additionally, as compared to other damping and roll control systems, the Kinetic® interlinkage concept consumes very little energy, thereby helping to extend battery vehicle range. R1T and R1S models also will be equipped with Tenneco 's Clevite® Elastomers front and rear suspension bushings, top mounts and other parts, contributing to the vehicles' smooth, quiet, comfortable ride dynamics. Clevite Elastomers products are engineered to provide premium, best-in-class performance in a full range of vehicle platforms and operating environments. By dramatically reducing noise, vibration and harshness (NVH), these innovative elastomeric formulations and components help OEMs provide clearly differentiated ride quality and cabin comfort. About Monroe® Intelligent Suspension: The Monroe Intelligent Suspension Portfolio includes CVSAe semi active suspension with 1 external solenoid valve for damping control, CVSA2 with 2 solenoid valves for independent rebound and compression damping control. The portfolio also includes Kinetic® H2 for roll control and Kinetic® X2 for roll and pitch control, both in combination with CVSA2. About Clevite® Elastomers: For more than 100 years, the Clevite® Elastomers brand has been a leading industry resource for vibration control design, engineering and manufacturing.

OMNIVISION and AVIVA Sign MOU to Make ASA Standards Camera Systems

OMNIVISION | January 06, 2023

Leading global developer of semiconductor solutions, OMNIVISION, signed an MOU with Aviva Links Inc, an automotive connectivity company enabling multi-gigabit links for in-vehicle networks, to develop automotive camera systems based on Automotive SerDes Alliance (ASA) specifications. The new sensors integrate AVIVA's high-speed communication solutions with OMNIVISION's image sensor technology, paving the way for intelligent and autonomous vehicles. Since OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers founded ASA in 2019, the alliance has gained popularity in the automotive industry and has become the OEM standard in manufacturing. ASA's ecosystem includes automobile manufacturers, Tier 1s, semiconductor suppliers, cable and connection manufacturers, test tool providers, and test houses. These firms are building an ASA ecosystem to standardize and optimize SerDes technology for next-generation software-enabled automobiles. The Camera systems with high-speed data transfer inside vehicles will be vital for the next wave of intelligent vehicles. A standard-based solution that can provide unparalleled performance will propel the industry forward. The company looks forward to working with OMNIVISION, the leader in automotive imaging solutions to speed up the adoption of ASA technology. Omnivision stated that as the industry advances from proprietary interfaces to an open standard, it is delighted to launch the first camera-based solution designed using ASA standards making it safe and offers lowest power consumption. In addition, transporting data at multi-gigabit speeds while facilitating interoperability is a missing link in intelligent and autonomous vehicles, and Aviva's ASA-compliant technology solves that challenge for the industry. The new camera systems are being designed in small form factors to ease integration into automobiles and to reduce manufacturing costs, utilizing the best of both AVIVA and OMNIVISION. In addition, because they use ASA-specified encryption technology, the systems are also highly secure.
