Cylinder liner foundry opensFederal-Mogul Powertrain (www.federalmogul.com) has opened a cylinder liner foundry, significantly expanding its Naberezhnye Chelny plant in Russia (a joint venture with truck manufacturer Kamaz that has been operating since 2009).

The ‘state of the art’ foundry adds in-house manufacturing capability for cylinder liner castings to the existing facilities, enabling fully integrated liner production.

It complements Federal-Mogul Powertrain’s local Power Cylinder Unit (PCU) manufacture, providing a complete package of heavy-duty pistons, rings, liners and pins for Kamaz.

Sergey Kogogin, general director of Kamaz, said: “The new foundry will enable us to expand the range of PCU components manufactured in Naberezhnye Chelny and add new technical capabilities to our joint venture.”

Rainer Jueckstock, CEO of Federal-Mogul Powertrain, added: “Russia represents a dynamic emerging market in the globalised production of heavy-duty engines for both on- and off-highway applications. The expansion of our Naberezhnye Chelny plant demonstrates our long-term commitment to the region and confirms Chelny’s position at the heart of heavy-duty PCU component manufacture in Russia.”

To accommodate the new foundry, the existing production building at the Naberezhnye Chelny plant has been extended. Newly installed facilities include melting furnaces for raw material, a fully automated centrifugal casting machine and a robot-assisted automated pre-machining line. This adds to existing equipment for finishing, honing, washing, final inspection, packaging and dispatch.
