Recently, with the increasingly fierce market competition, improving the machining technology of large-scale engine block
has become the urgent task for the further development.
One might envision a change to the arrangement of an engine to put the oil storage unit within the engine block
. This is somewhat analogous to systems that exist in some hybrid-engine automobiles that store the hot coolant inside the engine for better start-stop performance.
Under the agreement Hakkinen Engineering Works would concentrate its engine block
manufacturing in Turku and has acquired the factory hall that was previously part of the Wartsila Turku Factory.
ALUSIL engine blocks
feature a lowered weight and their monolithic character is engineered to enhance engine performance due to the properties inherent to the alloy.
But results achieved by newer eddy separators on car shredder fines show that the metals content can be as high as 10 to 25 percent, mainly made up of small pieces of aluminium coming from engine blocks
that have been shattered apart during the shredding process.
They have enabled the production of engine blocks
that weigh about 66% less than their cast iron counterparts.
We're able to manufacture and ship engine blocks
on a just-in-time basis, and adjust our output to their requirements."
These plugs (sometimes referred to as frost plugs) have been used as a low-cost, reliable method of sealing such low pressure passages in engine blocks
for more than 50 years.
The new products will include a new crate engine line, Hemi engine blocks
, and components for live TV in vehicles.
About 16 million [pounds sterling] will be spent on a new casting facility to produce diesel engine blocks
. The facility will use a patented manufacturing technology, called Advanced Semi-Solid Casting Technology, which up until now has only been used at Honda in Japan.
Formulated for sealing automotive flanges, cooling systems, engine blocks
, engine and transmission oil pans, axle cover seals and where immediate pressure leak testing is required, the 3-0115 sealant is said to provide an elastomeric seal that is resistant to most automotive powertrain fluids.
