Product development work in the foundry is helping the motor engineer to achieve his objectives with respect to reliability, performance, and cost. For example: V-8 cylinder block design modifications permit, the use of a unique coring concept that provides more accurate and cleaner castings; design parameters and laboratory testing techniques have been developed to optimize the design of cast crankshafts and connecting rods for outstanding reliability and manufacturing economy; and new laboratory testing techniques promise to expedite development of improved pistons.
