Modern engines place greater requirements on cylinder components than ever before: at higher operating temperatures and pressures, emissions must be reduced. This calls for innovative concepts and materials with unprecedented high performance. Thinking in systems and integral concepts also considerably contributes to achieving these goals. Additional performance potential can only be tapped when components are optimally tuned.
With the power cell unit—consisting of the piston with rings and pin, cylinder liner, and connecting rod with bearing shells—MAHLE provides a system that offers the customer commercial and logistical advantages due to its simpler assembly and optimally coordinated design.
