Figure 7(a) summarizes the variations in COF trends between TiN coated and uncoated cylinder liners
against TiN coated rings with respect to varying roughness of the cylinder liners
and thickness of TiN coatings on them.
In an automotive powertrain system, the cylinder liner
is one of the most critical components affecting the operational performance of an engine.
For big bore engines used in rail, earthmoving, shipping and mining operations it is crucial to service life that the cylinder liner
walls be deglazed, refinished and crosshatched when these engines are overhauled.
They have already started joint operations in the United States, Germany, China and India, according to the Tokyo-based maker of cylinder liners
The cylinder liner
is positioned within the facility and the air supply duct is attached to the top of the cylinder liner
The companies' new facility will produce cylinder liners
for aluminum engine blocks and will house machining and warehousing functions, in addition to metalcasting.
The supplier produces piston rings, cylinder liners
and camshafts for the automaker.
Dana's engine hard parts business consists of 39 facilities manufacturing piston rings, engine bearings, cylinder liners
and camshafts under Perfect Circle, Clevite and Glacier Vandervell brands.
One interesting change is the use of high-silicon cast-in-place cylinder liners
in the place of iron liners; the bores are mechanically etched so as to expose the silicon particles, thereby providing a hard piston-ring sealing surface.
The engine features wet-sleeve cylinder liners
for exceptional engine cooling.
This engine continues to operate and appears to have eliminated cavitation damage of its cylinder liners
under the new operating conditions.
