#INFINITI ’s new #VC -Turbo (#Variable#Compression#Turbo ) is the world’s first #production -ready variable compression ratio engine
INFINITI’s VC-Turbo technology uses an advanced #multi -link system to seamlessly raise or lower the reach of the #pistons .
The #engine is able to offer any #compression ratio between 8:1 (for #high#performance ) and 14:1 (for #high#efficiency ).
By being able to do this the engine can instantly selecting the most #suitable compression ratio as per the car’s driving #condition and #driver#inputs , making it the most #efficient#gasoline#engine#technology .
An #elliptic device attached to the #crankshaft where the rods go changes the distance the pistons travel in the #cylinder by as much as 6 mm.
Each piston is connected to a #multilink device with a rod on each side, one of which mates to a control shaft. That's the part the #electronic actuator pushes to change the piston travel and thus the compression.
In addition, Crankshaft is moved out from being #directly underneath the pistons' bores and offset it about 15 degrees.
Hence the piston is pushed and pulled straight up and down in each cylinder.
This with the multilink #assembly , eliminates the usual side forces that act on a piston as it travels in the cylinder. Thus reducing the #friction .
Power of a high-performance engine in a comparatively smaller engine
V-6 gasoline engine performance with fuel economy of a small 4 cylinder diesel and without diesel level emissions
Expansion at AES, builders and electrician in to complete the new building expansion. 50% increase in space, new goods in, main store, assembly area and turning section. Just want the mess to be over with to get back to normal, And a new machine ordered today to keep up with demand! Watch this space! #engineering#production#machinist#machining#hurco#biglia#brother
I was in the shop a couple weeks ago and there was a knock on the door. It was a local gentleman that heard I made bowls. He brought a bowl his wife purchased from a big name home decor company. He wanted me to fix it. There was absolutely no saving the bowl. It was a fantastic piece of shit. I spent a bit over an hour talking with the gentleman and showed him how a proper wooden bowl is made to insure it would last for generations. I also explained to him why the bowl he brought had cracked and failed so bad. Needless to say I earned his business. Turning a nicely sized once turned cherry bowl and 8 service bowls to match. Sure to hold some great food and wonderful memories. I love that I get to help people live a beautiful life 😊
