Delphi Automotive, Troy, Mich.
From the judges’ citation: Delphi Automotive has developed a lower cost, innovative new injector that significantly reduces noise levels, performance variation, emissions and fuel consumption. Delphi has achieved these gains through new technologies, including a decoupled armature and pintle assembly, a stamped metal injector tip, and powerful flux gate electromagnetics.
