As a cost-cutting measure, the linerless diesel engine was adopted by applying submerged induction hardening process which can harden partial inner surface of cylinder block bore. In applying this process, 1) the development of induction coil which can form any shape of quenched pattern and 2) the development of machining technology which can hone precisely the distorted bore after quenching, were important. With these improvements, submerged induction hardening was made practical.
