FPT Motorenforschung AG is based in Arbon on the Swiss shore of Lake Constance and is one of the 7 globally active research and development centers for industrial engines and drive systems of the FPT Industrial brand. The approximately 220 employees are involved in the most innovative and at the same time groundbreaking development projects in the powertrain segment of CNH Industrial. In particular, the focus is on improving existing and developing new technologies for the drive system.
The focus of development is on the one hand the reduction of emissions to the statutory level for commercial vehicles and machines in the respective country of use. Of course, the drive systems are also continuously developed with regard to customer expectations (high power density, low operating costs, long service life and maximum reliability).
Technical focal points are combustion development, exhaust aftertreatment, supercharging, mechanical development, engine electronics, functional development, design and virtual validation. The drive systems and components are tested and optimized for their suitability for use with the testing technology, which is largely developed and partly manufactured in-house
