コネクティングロッドの高強度化 -焼結鍛造・熱間鍛造の住み分け- Development of High strength Connecting Rod -Powder Forging and Forging-
For automobile engines, low fuel consumption and low emission technologies have been pursued while overcoming the difficulties such as two "oil-shocks", emission gas and CAFE regulations on Japanese automobiles. In addition, low noise and high performance requirements are increasing recently. In this paper, it is introduced that the high strength and light-weighted Connecting Rod development and usage status in Toyota, along with the selection between Powder Forging and Forging.
