Today’s requirements for modern combustion engines can be met only with highly efficient combustion and charging processes. Modern engines can now achieve specific power output and peak cylinder pressures in the combustion chamber that were previously unheard of outside of motorsport. This exposes the pistons to extreme loads, but the high requirements for service life and cost efficiency remain unchanged for these components. They are the decisive variables in the current global competitive environment.
