Discover high-quality charge air tubes for machines, plants and vehicle technology

Charge air tubes are indispensable components in turbocharged engines. They serve as a crucial link between the supercharger and the combustion chamber and ensure efficient combustion by supplying compressed air. This process can increase engine performance and result in significant potential fuel savings. On the other hand, a leaking charge air tube can lead to a significant loss of engine power and an increase in fuel consumption.

NovaNox® manufactures charge air pipes that are specially tailored to the requirements and needs of customers. State-of-the-art technologies and manufacturing methods are used to ensure the highest quality and durability of our products.

One advantage of NovaNox® is its high flexibility in the design and manufacture of charge air tubes.

Services

To ensure that test phases and also the use of your product after commissioning by your customers run smoothly, we use FEM calculations to check the structural strength, fatigue strength and material efficiency of your concept, among other things, at an early stage of development.

In doing so, we digitally present the consequences of different force effects, temperature influences and electrical stresses through linear and non-linear structural mechanical calculations. This enables us to examine the effects of the various influences on the entire product or component for simple and complex geometries even before prototypes are built.

The results from these calculations are then available to you as evidence for technical approvals, for product liability and production releases.
We perform FEM calculations analytically according to generally and internationally standardized standards. This ensures comparability and reliable results. In detail we do for you:

  • linear and non-linear structural mechanics calculations
  • Analysis of deformations, stiffnesses and stability
  • Consideration of natural vibrations
  • Transient structural analysis
  • Collision analyses
  • Temperature field calculation (thermal-stationary or thermal-transient)
  • CAE-supported fatigue calculation with nCode

We provide you with technical drawings in 2D (in dxf, dwg and pdf formats) and in 3D (in step format). These include individual part drawings, assembly drawings, general drawings or assembly drawings, as required. In addition, you receive detailed technical documentation for checking purposes. This allows you to make adjustments or add special requests before production begins. Then you can be sure that everything fits when production starts.

You can rely on everything fitting exactly and being implemented flawlessly. With this range of technical drawings and the extensive documentation, communication across your entire development and manufacturing process chain succeeds to the letter. The different information needs of each stage are thus met and run much more efficiently.

In order to achieve a result that is as close to series production as possible, even in the prototype phase, we work closely with you in the development, planning and design of the construction, material and manufacturing process. This ensures optimum results and compliance with your time and cost planning.

The final touches are made by analyzing the results of the FAI. In this way, we optimize the production process for maximum efficiency and cost-effectiveness. This includes shortening the start-up phase and successfully transitioning to series production as planned. This ensures a more relaxed project budget and a good hedge.

You can place the entire process, from requirements planning to logistical handling, in our hands. For this purpose, we provide you with a total of 1,200 square meters of storage space as a consignment warehouse to ensure uninterrupted production processes. On the one hand, this saves you costs compared to your own storage capacities. On the other hand, you can produce larger quantities more cost-effectively.

This ensures the best possible supply of components for your series production. Your charge air tubes are delivered from the consignment warehouse on schedule and flexibly on demand. Your existing logistics processes are fully taken into account. In this way, you ensure the secure supply of components for charge air pipes from NovaNox® for the entire year.

Quality management

To ensure that your charge air tubes are safe and stable, the optimum welding process must be selected for the specific requirements of their subsequent use. This is done in welding process planning.

Welding process planning also determines and fixes the welding sequence. The optimum sequence of welding operations improves the efficiency of your production processes, extends the service life of your charge air tubes, and makes their sealing more reliable.

Type identification ensures easy traceability back to the source for every charge air tube. This means that the entire path from manufacture to the last use can be traced in detail over the entire product life. This proof means more security for you.

Depending on the material and stress on your charge-air tubes, various type designations are available:

  • Laser engraving
  • Welded metal signs with laser engraving
  • Self adhesive metal signs with laser engraving
  • Self-adhesive plastic labels with specific imprint and silicone coating for external protection

Whether symbols, numbers or letters - your personal identification enables constant traceability of your charge air tubes as an optimal solution for clear route and process reconstruction.

The leak test ensures that your charge-air tubes remain leak-proof even in continuous use and under exceptional conditions. For your additional security, you will receive the result of the leak test as a written declaration of conformity for each delivery. You can easily add this NovaNox® test certificate to your overall documentation. We carry out these leak tests for you:

  • Comprehensive air-under-water testing conducted at 100% capacity in a designated test basin (e.g., compliant with ECE R34 or 70/21/EEC regulation).
  • Pressure test
  • Leak test by means of red or fluorescent dyes
  • Ultrasonic testing

Precise documentation of production processes serves quality assurance in production. In this way, you ensure the high quality of your products.  Complete documentation also reveals enormous cost-cutting potential, especially in large projects, because errors and quality deviations can be detected and eliminated at an early stage. Precisely documented, repeatable processes provide additional time reserves and personnel resources. We offer you this comprehensive documentation for quality management:

  • Initial sample inspection report according to VDA 2, EN 9102
  • Factory certificates 3.1 and 2.2 according to EN 10204
  • Dimensional protocol through 3D measuring technology (Faro measuring arm)
  • Declaration of conformity for pressure tests

You can integrate all our documents quickly and conveniently into your overall documentation.
