1920
伟大历程的起点
Hellmuth Hirth在德国斯图加特的二冲程发动机作坊在商业运作上需要帮手。1920年12月1日,他迎来了Hermann Mahle的加盟。这天被认为是马勒集团的创始之日。
1922
马勒兄弟俩开始共事
轻合金活塞是当时的主打产品。自成立以来,已经有约4万只活塞出自这里的工人之手,员工数一度达到200人上下。技术瓶颈出现了。Hermann Mahle请来了他的弟弟Ernst担任工程师。
1929
滤清器延长了活塞的使用寿命
发动机工作环境越苛刻,对活塞的性能表现的要求便越高。当时没有几条柏油路,土路的灰尘很容易损伤活塞。Ernst Mahle决定开发空滤和机油滤。
1930
镶环活塞横空出世
轻合金活塞过早的磨损总是造成各种问题。Ernst Mahle开发的镶环活塞改变了这一局面。这项技术直到今天仍在广泛地应用。
1933
马勒时代来临
1933年起,马勒兄弟成为了公司唯二的股东。1938年,他们将公司改制为有限合股制,并更名为“马勒”。“MAHLE”这五个大写字母从此成为了公司标识,沿用至今。
1940
独裁。军备。战争。
此时的生产已经完全向“战时经济紧急需求目的”倾斜。到1944年,员工总数已经超过6,000人,其中包括外籍工人和强迫劳力。
1945
战后百废待兴
经过这场战争,马勒公司损失了六成的资产。Ernst Mahle前往巴西,建立起了一座全新的活塞工厂。在德国,马勒做起了活塞修理、手推车和厨房用具的营生。
1964
投入慈善事业
马勒兄弟成立了基金会,以医疗养护、教育培训、有机农业和文化艺术为主要关注领域。目前最大的资助项目是德国斯图加特附近的菲尔德诊所。
1971
马勒兄弟淡出历史舞台
在创办并经营公司约50年后,马勒兄弟终于从一线退了下来。他们这一辈子的事业足以令人敬佩,此时的马勒已经拥有4亿多德国马克营业额、超过6,000名员工的规模。
1972
过滤业务东山再起
对Knecht过滤器工厂股权的掌握使得自1941年起因战争而中断的滤清器业务再度回归,并很快变成立志成为系统供应商的马勒旗下的一大主营业务。
1975
马勒进军国际
尽管此前有许可委托生产形式的国际合作,但马勒自己真正意义上的首个海外工厂直到1975年才在美国建立,1978年巴西建厂。
1991

MAHLE Greatest Hits

MAHLE has been shaping mobility for 100 years. In the MAHLE Greatest Hits series, MAHLE’s most acclaimed innovations of the past and present tell their own tales of how they promoted mobility. Then we will also take a glimpse into the future, how upcoming MAHLE innovations will contribute in our quest to shape the future of mobility.

Pistons at MAHLE come also out of 3D printers.

The ring carrier pistion

“I was the key to MAHLE’s success”

“MAHLE’s 100-year success story originates with me! Painstaking research and innovative strength have been permanent fixtures at MAHLE ever since Hermann Mahle began to develop engines in 1920. Pistons were the company’s core business—and I, the patented ring carrier piston, was MAHLE’s first best seller!

My inventor, Ernst Mahle, was a great pioneer. He made sure that I improved the seal in diesel engines and thus reduced the wear and tear they were exposed to. That was the crucial breakthrough that significantly extended the life of an engine. It wasn’t long before I could be found on every road in the world!

Because MAHLE has always driven the mobility of the future, I too have kept on developing. I’ve never been more resilient than I am today. You can find me in vintage cars—and you’ll now also see me coming out of the 3D printers at MAHLE! Its knowledge about me also helps MAHLE to develop new products, such as solutions for alternative drives.”

The battery cooling keeps the temperature of the cell core within the optimal range.

Battery cooling

“I protect batteries for numerous vehicle manufacturers around the globe”

Batteries are one of the keys to the success of e-mobility. But they’re sensitive and need to be kept comfortable at an optimal temperature if they’re to last a long time. That’s why my arrival on the market in 2009 was such great news: I’m the world’s first refrigerant cooling solution for lithium-ion batteries!

My jacket is a cooling plate made of aluminum. There are channels inside me through which the refrigerant evaporates. This keeps the temperature of the cell core within the optimal range. I was installed in a hybrid vehicle first.

Since my world debut, MAHLE has continued to improve my design. These days, I protect batteries for many vehicle manufacturers around the globe. And thanks to immersion cooling, there’s now a new generation of battery systems that allow electric vehicles to be charged much more quickly without causing damage to the cells. With these developments, MAHLE demonstrates its innovative strength in shaping future mobility!

Thanks to TechPRO® Digital ADAS, workshop technicians can calibrate driver assistance systems in just ten minutes.

TechPRO® Digital ADAS

“Thanks to me, workshops can breathe a sigh of relief”

“I’m always on hand during the replacement of a windshield or other parts of a car on which important driving aids are mounted. These days, more and more cars are fitted with radar and cameras. This means that workshops are faced with a big challenge when it comes to resetting driver assistance systems after an accident, for example.

Before MAHLE invented me in 2018, technicians had to position a large, cumbersome panel in front of each car—and there was a different one for every vehicle model. These panels act like opticians, helping to orientate assistance systems so that they can tell up from down and back from front. As a result, calibration used to be a complex process.

When I, TechPRO® Digital ADAS, came on the scene, workshops around the world could finally breathe a sigh of relief! I combined the panels in one digital flat-screen display, which works for almost all manufacturers and models. Thanks to me, workshop technicians can calibrate driver assistance systems in just ten minutes. The number of cars with driver assistance systems will keep on increasing. This means that I’m in high demand—with customers asking for me every day.”

MAHLE MEET is a climate-friendly mobility concept.

“I showcase MAHLE’s innovative strength”

“In the future, a large proportion of the world’s population will live in cities. That means that city cars will be an important element of future mobility. MAHLE has seized this opportunity to develop a mobility concept that is both urban and climate-friendly—me!

My name is MAHLE Efficient Electric Transport, my friends call me MEET. I’m a light, agile vehicle concept with space for two people, and my design integrates MAHLE powertrain and thermal management technologies for e mobility!

From my 48-volt drive unit to my power electronics, efficient heat pump, and surface heaters through to my user interface, I showcase MAHLE’s comprehensive portfolio and innovative strength. I embody MAHLE’s commitment to play an active role in shaping future mobility.”

The intake pipe actuator is first product in the field of mechatronics that MAHLE developed and produced itself.

Intake pipe actuator

“All of MAHLE’s mechatronics activities started with me”

In truth, I am rather plain—nevertheless, I ushered in a new era at MAHLE. MAHLE’s activities in the field of mechatronics started with me, the intake pipe actuator. I’m the first product in this area that MAHLE developed and produced itself.

I make sure that the air column in an engine’s intake section resonates at the right frequency and enters the cylinder smoothly. My housing is lightweight and sturdy, and I work very precisely and quickly: I can open 90 degrees in 200 milliseconds.

Since I went into production in 2005, MAHLE has been steadily advancing in the field of mechatronics. The new Electronics and Mechatronics business unit was created at the start of 2020. This is where MAHLE has pooled all its activities in the segment and is developing the technologies of the future.

The wind tunnel creates temperatures ranging from –30°C to +50°C.

Wind tunnel

“I was a world first”

“When my creator, Manfred Behr, invented me in 1937, people probably didn’t find me outwardly attractive—but when they looked inside, I took their breath away! On the outside, I had the appearance of a modest corrugated iron shed, but inside something completely new was happening: I was a world first—the first wind tunnel anywhere in the automotive industry.

A huge fan with a 2-meter diameter simulated speeds of up to 100 km/h. My success was so groundbreaking that I even optimized the most famous race car of my time.

I’m still around today—and I’ve learned so much since I started out. As MAHLE’s climatic wind tunnel, I’ve been creating temperatures ranging from –30°C to +50°C since the majority acquisition of BEHR (in 2013). I can also simulate the position of the sun at all times of the day and generate speeds of up to 130 km/h, all of which helps MAHLE to develop the mobility of the future.”

Thanks to MAHLE X35, the e-bike is slim, elegant, and sporty.

MAHLE X35

„I gave the bicycle back its identity“

“E-bikes are one of the biggest trends in today’s mobility—there are more and more of them out on the world’s cycle paths and mountain bike trails. But thanks to the way they look, they can almost rob the bicycle of its identity. That’s because large batteries don’t just make e-bikes bulky and heavy, they also change their outward appearance. Then I came along—the MAHLE X35—and gave the bicycle back its identity!

It’s thanks to me that the e-bike is so slim, elegant, and sporty—you would hardly know that I’m a drive system. I offer users an optimum level of support. After all, as I always say, it’s not the maximum but rather the ideal performance that counts!

With my updated MAHLE X35+ compact system, I now weigh just 3.5 kilograms and provide a power output of 250 watts. What’s more, I’m digitally connected too. My app displays the rider’s pulse or how much of my electric power is being used. You’ll find me in models sold by a whole range of well-known international e-bike brands. I’m helping MAHLE play an active role in shaping sustainable mobility!”

The oil filter module is a shining example of the impressive know-how of MAHLE’s filters business segment.

Oil filter module

“I’m a revolution in oil management”

MAHLE’s success story has its origins in pistons and filters. But, in contrast to its pistons business, the company stopped its filter activities in 1941 due to the war. Then, in 1971, MAHLE made its comeback in this product area by taking a significant holding in Knecht Filterwerke.

I am the oil filter module—a shining example of the continued ongoing development work and impressive know-how of MAHLE’s filters business segment! I say that because I’m a revolution in oil management. I have many talents, keeping the engine and the transmission oil in the right temperature range as well as filtering the engine oil, of course. But I’m still lightweight and compact.

I made my debut on the market in 2010 and can be installed in almost any car—even in hybrid vehicles. I demonstrate MAHLE’s innovative strength in the filters business segment!

The onboard charger helps to significantly prolong the life of the battery.

Onboard charger

“I charge electric vehicles quickly anywhere”

For e-mobility to become established on our roads in the long term, it must be possible to charge electric vehicles quickly and in any location. So that this can happen anywhere, MAHLE developed me: the onboard charger.

Thanks to me, electric vehicles can be charged at any power outlet. That’s because I turn alternating current into direct current and manage the charging process. By doing this, I help to significantly prolong the life of the battery. Because I’m robust and have a clever cooling system, I also facilitate short charging times at higher capacities.

I still have a lot more to offer—and MAHLE, an active driving force behind future mobility, is set to unlock this potential. For example, I will be able to help electric cars not only consume energy but also become electricity suppliers using a smart battery.

The air intake module was the first project that MAHLE and BEHR worked on together.

Air intake module with integrated charge air cooling

“I’m the innovative result of outstanding teamwork!”

Together, MAHLE and BEHR are greater than the sum of their parts! I was the first to prove the truth of this maxim. In 2011, I was the first project that MAHLE and BEHR worked on together: the air intake module with integrated indirect charge air cooling.

What’s special about me is that my charge air cooler—produced by BEHR—is integrated directly in the intake pipe—produced by MAHLE. This means that not only do I reduce pressure loss, and therefore boost efficiency, but I also create more installation space and increase cooling capacity.

I’m a major success story! Because I represent an important step forward in the development of modern combustion engines, I’m now the market leader and installed in vehicles around the world. And, thanks to the combined expertise of MAHLE and BEHR, I’m the innovative result of outstanding teamwork!

The high-voltage motor is a sustainable drive concept that is ideal for electric vehicles.

The magnet-free high-voltage motor

“I don’t need any rare earth elements, so I’m very sustainable”

Electric vehicles will be an important part of future mobility. Because they need to be sustainable, suitable for everyday use, and cost-effective, MAHLE developed a drive concept that’s ideal for a wide range of electric vehicle types—me!

I’m the magnet-free high-voltage motor, and I can be used in anything from subcompacts through commercial vehicles. I’m particularly noted for the fact that I get along fine without magnets. That makes me more sustainable, because I don’t need any rare earth elements. What’s more, the way I operate means that electrical current is transmitted with no wear, and I’m also efficient in the partial-load range.

I plan to go into series production very soon, and I’ll be produced by our newly established Electronics and Mechatronics business unit. I’m helping MAHLE play an active role in shaping sustainable e-mobility!

The humidifier receives funding from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).

Flat membrane humidifier for fuel cell vehicles

“I’m an example of MAHLE’s great innovative strength”

Supplying air to a fuel cell is extremely challenging. That’s because, unlike in a combustion engine, the air also needs to be humid so that the system works smoothly and efficiently. My role as the flat membrane humidifier is to ensure that the moisture content in the air is just right—protecting the fuel cell against damage!

I’m an example of MAHLE’s great innovative strength. I’m compact and robustly built, and I always keep the supply air at the optimum humidity level. I’m so innovative that I even receive funding from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi)!

MAHLE has been working on my development since 2017, with everything coming together in the fuel cell project house, and I’m set to go into series production in 2023. I’m helping MAHLE play an active role in shaping a key powertrain of the future!

The valve train helps engines to reduce their pollutant emissions.

Valve train system

“I am the lungs of the engine”

“If you were to think about the components in an engine as organs, then I’d be its lungs. That’s because I make sure that the engine breathes in the right amount of fresh air for the combustion process at the right time and breathes the burned air back out again.

I’m the valve train, and I’ve been a key part of the MAHLE portfolio since the acquisition of Wizemann (in 1991) and Pleuco (in 1994). When I joined the company, MAHLE greatly expanded its wide-ranging knowledge base covering all aspects of the engine—and the team has kept on developing me.

I’m very flexible nowadays, and my perfect timing allows me to help engines reduce their pollutant emissions, consume less fuel, and yet still deliver a higher performance.”

The E-compressor is the beating heart of the air conditioning and refrigerant circuit.
