Along with high-end vehicles, automotive manufacturers are emphasizing on introducing equally effective automotive components that support the overall vehicle performance. Engines valves are amongst these most vital components, which when efficient, help in maximizing the automobile’s performance. Automotive engine valves are expected to work reliably under extreme mechanical conditions and high-thermal load scenarios. The rising consumer expectations for high-performance auto components is likely to fuel key innovations in the automotive engine valve market.
In future, the demand for automotive engine valves will be strongly driven by key industry trends including a reduction in oil consumption and exhaust emissions, abatement of leaded petrol, and declining sulfur content in diesel fuel. This has opened expansion opportunities for providers of automotive engines valves who are now involved in extensive production and designing of automotive engine valves. Furthermore, the automakers are likely to consider material innovations to boost the durability of the engine valves.
Revolutionary Digital Engine Valves to Transform Valve Capabilities
As companies aim to improve the capabilities of vehicles, the focus remains on maximizing the performance of engines. As technology advances, companies operating in the automotive engine valve market are able to offer cutting-edge automotive engine valves to the market.
For instance, Camcon Automotive, a British company recently developed a fully electronic engines valve system which is claimed to the first-of-its-kind. As the revolutionary automotive engine valve is uncoupled from the crankshaft it providers unmatched control over the combustion cycle. In addition to emissions and power improvements, this engine valve opens unusual and ideal capabilities of automotive engines that have not been cited previously. These capabilities include providing 4-stroke engines 2-stroke power enhancements.
Investments Concentrated on Achieving Greater Efficiency
As consumers demand greater efficiency in vehicles, it is one of the most significant requirements that need to be addressed. As a result of this, vital investments are being centered on improving the capabilities of automotive engine valves.
For instance, Pierburg, a unit within Germany’s Rheinmetall Automotive, is a specialist for air supply, emission control, solenoid valves, and throttle valves recently announced that it is ramping up the production capacity of its US-based plant, with an aim to introduce a next-gen technology to the market. The company is spending over $10 million to introduce four new product lines this year at the Fountain Inn, S.C.-based plant. These product lines include a ground-breaking solenoid valve engineered to aid automakers in making their engines more efficient.
Going Beyond Conventional Capabilities of Automotive Engine Valves
As automakers innovate in the automobile offerings for the purpose of delivering advanced solutions, rapid revolutions are witnessed in the automotive component market. The complete focus of automakers is centered on improving the overall in-vehicle experience of drivers and passengers.
For instance, Eberspaecher Exhaust Technology recently introduced a next-gen electrically operated acoustic valve solution designed for passenger cars. The continually adjustable valve plate along with the maximum acoustic tightness ensures reduced levels of noise emission, which results in a pleasant vehicle sound. On high driving speed, the open valves direct exhaust gas outwards to the exhaust pipes, thereby lowering exhaust back pressure, minimizing fuel consumption, and enabling unrestricted engine power. Alongside, the lightweight valves efficiently reduce the muffler volume. The company further revealed that the production is slated to commence in 2020.
