For more than 15 years, a division of GVS Automotive has been specialising in the production of components for throttle bodies, ever since they took over a production line of M. Marelli for the manufacturing of throttle valves.
By applying the GVS philosophy and investing in new technologies, GVS has become a leading firm in the manufacture of throttle valves in aluminium, brass and special alloys. Today GVS has production lines installed in their factories in Italy and Brazil, while there are also plans to start lines in the new US factory in Indianapolis and later in the Chinese plant of NingBo.
GVS has recently expanded its range of products for throttle bodies, with a special three-year investment plan for the expansion of the Brazil factory, specialising in the production of gears in plastic and metal shafts with toothed co-molded sector for DBW.
In order to guarantee the tolerances requested, the temperature in the production areas is controlled to cut down heat expansion, which would otherwise lead to an increase in the working tolerances. The great experience accumulated by GVS over the years in the internal design of the production systems easily enables them to maintain the high precision required by the valves (+/- 4 micron) at the level of industrial production.
Constantly seeking further improvement in performances and costs, GVS is now developing valves for throttle bodies with innovative materials, in plastic alone, plastic and metal combinations, as well as other innovative solutions.
