Optimized Connecting Rods to Enable Higher Engine Performance and Cost Reduction 980882

The manufacturing of modern engines requires an optimization down to component level. Near net shape connecting rods with high fatigue strength are opening a range to reduce costs and improve the engine's performance. In the last years the development of production technology for steel-forged rough parts was continued aiming at a reduction of the required machining steps. Simultaneously the benefit of high fatigue strength for the forged steel compared to alternative powder metal material can be maintained.
