Development of Sintered Parts for Variable Valve Timing Unit 2006-01-0602
Variable valve timing (VVT) unit, which is able to decrease environmental load and improve fuel economy is loaded onto many automobiles recently. This unit consists mainly of sprocket, housing and rotor. These parts are requested different properties according to environment. We produce sintered parts for variable valve timing unit by selecting compact, sinter process and special treatment according to demanded properties.
In this paper, demanded properties of sintered parts for variable valve timing unit and adopted technique to satisfy them are presented.
