Innovative strength has always been the engine of our success. MAHLE has grown from a small test workshop into a global company and technology leader. The success story begins in 1920 when pistons made of heavy gray cast iron were being used in internal combustion engines for automobiles. The Mahle brothers, in contrast, were producing light alloy pistons at their small, newly established company. To keep dirt and dust out of the engine, they eventually developed air and oil filters. Their perseverance paid off as the light-alloy pistons began to take over the market. Today, every second automobile produced worldwide contains MAHLE components. MAHLE offers systems solutions ranging from power cell units and fully assembled cylinder heads to complete engine assembly and also provides expertise in the entire air management system. At our research and development centers worldwide, we are working on innovations for greater power, reduced consumption and emission values, and better performance throughout the complete system.
Heating & Air Conditioning
Your engine is cooled by a mix of ethylene glycol and water circulated through a radiator by the water pump. Proper maintenance of your MINI or BMW cooling system ensures not only a healthy and well-running engine, but also a comfortable cabin for you and your passenger. Similarly, the air-conditioning system uses specialized refrigerant that is pumped through your MINI or BMW's air conditioning system by a compressor mounted on the engine. The refrigerant is circulated through a heat exchanger inside the cabin that draws heat from the air that is blown into the cabin for a cool temperature on a hot day.
