Federal Mogul Naberezhnye Chelny, KAMAZ and Federal Mogul joint venture producing cylinder piston assembly parts, was established in 2008.
In October, 2009 the venture located on ‘KAMAZ-Diesel’ facilities started producing pistons, cylinder liners, piston rings and other parts for truck engines. Due to casting and machine processing under the same roof, production localization reached 90%.
In 2012 the JV implemented new mechanical processing equipment for pistons and cylinder liners and transmission furnace for drying piston carbon. Innovative technologies allowed to increase piston ring durability in 3 times, upgrade ring adaptivity to cylinder geometry and consequently improve engine oil consumption.
The Federal Mogul Naberezhnye Chelny know-hows allowed to increase KAMAZ kilometrage life up to 1 million km before the major repair.
