Something As Ancient As the Piston Learns New Tricks
Even with all the electric hype, the Internal combustion engine is not quite dead yet. Since its introduction in 2003, Federal-Mogul Corporation's Monosteel? piston has become an industry standard for heavy-duty diesel vehicle applications with more than 3.5 million pistons produced to date. Federal-Mogul today announced that it has developed the next generation of the Monosteel piston, called Magnum Monosteel. The new design reduces piston mass by up to seven percent and includes design features that reduce friction for improved fuel economy and lower emissions.
