KS system expertise reduces emissions and fuel consumption

In recent years, KS Kolbenschmidt has consistently built up expertise in designing, developing and producing systematically optimised piston systems.

We successfully operate a dedicated friction output test bench for passenger car applications that operates according to the floating liner principle in order to integrate the results into areas such as friction simulation. KS develops complete piston systems for utility vehicles, consisting of pistons, piston rings, cylinders, pins and connecting rods that have been optimised with regard to friction and consumption. On the whole, the piston system optimised by KS Kolbenschmidt is characterised by friction values reduced by up to 18% with constant, low oil consumption.
