What is the use potential of high performance ceramics for current and future requirements in engine manufacturing? The Fraunhofer-Institutes LBF and IWM are analysing this in close collaboration with industry partners from the motor and ceramics industry. The starting point of the ongoing investigations in this area is the piston pin used in diesel engines, because great development and sales potential are expected for this concept.
