Improving Crankshaft Manufacturing


Improving Crankshaft Manufacturing with Electrochemical Machining

Ensuring sufficient and permanent lubrication of crankshaft bearings in automobile engines is critical for avoiding engine failures. As the crankshaft becomes smaller, due to manufacturing trends and consumer expectations, the number of oil intersection holes increases. All burrs and debris left behind in the drilling process must be removed.

New Microflow Highflow


EXTRUDE HONE brings all new MICROFLOW HIGHFLOW solution to meet the high precision flow targeting system requirements of the heavy-duty market (Marine, trucks, off-highway, and diesel power generators).

The challenges:

With climate changes posing significant risk to the society, reducing the fuel consumption and emissions is one of the critical steps in slowing the negative effects of climate change. Medium and heavy-duty vehicles represent a significantly smaller fraction of the number of vehicles on the road but still contribute to more than one-fifth of emissions. Figure 1 represents the stringent emission standards OEMs in the heavy-duty vehicles market face leading to the following challenges:
