Considerations for Using High Strength Low Alloy Steel in Bonded Transmission Pistons 980582
Standard bonded transmission piston design specifies the use of low carbon steel for the piston carrier material. High strength low alloy (HSLA) steel is proposed for applications where load and packaging requirements dictate. The impact of carrier material selection on piston design and manufacturing needs to be comprehensively evaluated in these cases. This paper will discuss considerations for using HSLA steel and make recommendations for its application to bonded transmission pistons.
