The piston pin, as the link between the piston and connecting rod, is subjected to extremely high loads in alternating directions. In order to be able to withstand these stresses as well as ever-increasing combustion pressures, it is essential that the load capacity of these components be permanently optimized.
MAHLE piston pins feature highest quality, precision, and application versatility. They are machined with state-of-the-art multiple station part formers. Innovative and complex forms can thus be achieved for increased stress resistance. Coatings based on PVD or DLC (diamond-like carbon) reduce wear and improve friction properties.
