Small Bore Pistons

Achieving the climate goals - With optimised pistons for reduced friction and weight

Kolbenschmidt's Pistons Business Unit is your partner for highly efficient piston designs and systems. Our aluminium and steel pistons are used in gasoline and diesel passenger cars and commercial vehicles, from compacts to off-road vehicles and increasingly in hybrids, too.

It is always about efficiency, reducing CO2 and controlling emissions.

Here we operate confidently in reducing friction in the stress field, increasing thermal and mechanical load capacity, meeting lightweight construction requirements and generating less noise. No matter what your engine does in the future, Kolbenschmidt has developed and manufactured a piston system right for you.

  • Optimized friction performance and weight
  • Maximum thermal and mechanical load capacity
  • For lower fuel consumption and reduced CO2 emissions
