Because of the enormous peak pressures and the tough criteria regarding durability and dependability, all-steel pistons are increasingly popular worldwide for commercial vehicle engines. KS Kolbenschmidt addresses these market trends and its all-steel pistons for heavy commercial vehicles are increasingly gaining ground.
Thanks to repeated improvements in the materials used and in the design of the pistons themselves while taking into account more favorable combustion chamber geometries as well as the employment of piston-pin boss bushings, aluminum pistons will in future perform excellent services in commercial vehicle applications.
Additionally, resistance at the bowl lip can be considerably enhanced by full hard-anodizing of the piston crown.
