Auto-component supplier KSPG AG, a member of the Rheinmetall Group, has, through its KS Kolbenschmidt GmbH subsidiary, booked a new order for piston modules with a lifetime volume worth around €32.5 million. The contract was awarded by a major American auto manufacturer who will install the modules into three-cylinder diesel engines built at its European plants. As from 2019, the pistons will be manufactured at KS Kolbenschmidt's Czech plant in Ústí nad Labem.

The pistons will be delivered complete with assembled rings and pins. The contract once again emphasizes KS Kolbenschmidt's piston-module competence. The pistons with ring carrier and coolant passage will have a Nanofriks coating whose nanoparticles ensure extra wear resistance and very low friction, thus efficiently addressing growing demands for less fuel consumption and reduced emissions.
