Innovation

Magal Engineering has been working in partnership with the global automotive and industrial industries for over 50 years engaged in the design, development and manufacture of mechanically engineered components. Our dedicated workforce have a depth of knowledge and experience in our chosen field, offering our customers a secure and reliable resource to solve their specific problems.

At Magal Engineering we are constantly striving to seek out new initiatives and stay at the forefront of innovation across our product portfolio. It may start out as a doodle on a notepad, and idea on the drive to work, or a wish for something new to work on, which drives our team to deliver the best they can.

The Innovation and Technology section of the website aims to promote the new ideas, techniques and procedures within the Magal Group and how they are helping our customers to improve their products.

 

  • High strength glass filled materials for use in high ambient temperature environments. Magal Western Thomson were the first company to develop plastic thermostat assemblies to replace more costly aluminium construction
  • Moving from the use of mechanical fixings in joining components to vibration welding delivering improvements in leak performance and improved cycle time- increasing productivity and reducing costs. Magal were the first company to successfully develop the use of this process.
  • Supporting improved engine emissions through development of a fully variable electric proportional valve to provide accurate repeatable control of coolant flow. Compact design offers flexible design packaging, low pressure drop, internal sealing function, low consumption, low bypass leakage, and improved reaction times. Design also includes a patented “self-safe” function
  • Development of an industry leading triple acting electrical thermostat which controls flow from head and block independently with the added benefit of twin pressure relief for system protection. This innovative design replaces the tradition solution of main thermostat and block thermostats, this offering improved control plus cost reduction for the customer
  • For high flow environments, Magal have manufactured a large diameter poppet valve system incorporating electrical control of movement, longer stroking element and high flow rates up to 300 litres per minute. The design has the added advantage over slide valve technology by delivering a self-cleaning sealing method
  • Thinner high strength steel for use in park brake development, adding strength and design flexibility whilst reducing weight
  • Developing high speed, complex yet flexible automated assembly equipment and systems to reduce cycle times, improve capacity, deliver repeatable and world class levels of quality, with the added benefit of reducing product costs to our customers
  • Introduce to production a clever design solution for hood release cable lever which is shielded by the door shut within the lower A pillar, thus preventing accidental bonnet release and satisfying the latest Thatcham requirement for break in protection through a smashed side window
