As one of the most quality-sensitive components, the piston is partly responsible for cleaner combustion. It also ensures a long service life for the engine. Due to the optimization of the combustion chamber, the shape of the pistons is becoming increasingly demanding and must be adapted separately.
In engine construction, the machining of pistons is one of the most complex processes. Here, WEISSER masters the entire process chain for complete machining. Very small tolerances are required, especially for the machining of the outer contour, but also the weighting in the area of flexibility is increasing. Nowadays, it must be possible to machine a wide variety of piston types on machines for the outer contour machining of pistons. Here we are not only talking about the design and size, but also about different materials such as aluminum or hardened steel.
