Abstract:
The manufacturing of modern engines requires an optimization down to component level. Near net shape connecting rods with high fatigue strength are opening a range to reduce costs and improve the engine's performance. In the last years the development of production technology for steel-forged rough parts was continued aiming at a reduction of the required machining steps. Simultaneously the benefit of high fatigue strength for the forged steel compared to alternative powder metal material can be maintained.
