The connecting rod converts the linear motion of the piston into the circular motion of the crankshaft, or turns circular motion into linear motion. Connecting rods are often manufactured out of C70 steel, alloyed steels and sintered metals. For sports car engines which are subjected to extreme stress, connecting rods are mainly manufactured out of heat treatable steels or titanium. The rod blanks in large-volume production are forged or sintered. Machining these components requires specially matched tool solutions.
A solution which offers cost-effectiveness and process reliability can be found in our comprehensive tool range for every machining assignment.
