Forged products have always been of great importance in many industries and found use in a wide variety of areas. Thanks to their application, the performance and robustness of combustion engines have been markedly improved in the past. Hirschvogel Automotive Group and Liebherr present the latest results of their cooperation in the introduction of forging technology for the manufacturing of injection components. The new forged high strength common rail was installed and tested in the Liebherr D976 diesel engine, which has recently been launched on the market. With this mutual development project was a significant reduction of fuel consumption and of the polluting emissions.
