MMC Pistons a Solution for 1990's High Output Diesels 890595

A new type of Aluminum piston has been developed to meet the stringent emissions and durability requirements of high output Diesel engines for the 1990's. The successful application of Metal Matrix Composite reinforcements to the superior combination of production squeeze casting and single-axis turning provides a solution for most of the identifiable problems of this class of engines, e.g.- increased peak pressures, improved K factor & improved oil economy. A simultaneous design/manufacturing/quality approach insured the reliability and cost effectiveness of this concept compared with other potential solutions.
