CONNECTING ROD MACHINING
We offer machining services for both ends of all types of connecting rods.
What is a connecting rod and what is its role?
Connecting rod achieves the connection of the piston to the crankshaft. In its upper part, we have the small end (bushing) of the piston pin, through which it is connected to the piston. In the lower part, we have the big end (crank bearing) over which it is connected to the crankshaft.
How does a hazard occur and how is it resolved?
Damage to the connecting rod occurs as a result of poor lubrication of the engine and damaging of the crankshaft rod journals through which it is connected to the connecting rod. Then the damage to the connecting rod occurs in the big end of the connecting rod. When coolant penetrates the engine cylinders or injects a large amount of fuel, the connecting rod may bend.
Available operations are:
- Small end machining (bushing replacement)
- Big end machining
- Connecting rod inspection (weight and tear)
