Precision engineering

Precision engineering is a sub-discipline in several engineering fields, such as electronics-, electrical-, software-, optical- and mechanical engineering, which applies highly precise movements. One of the most important principles of such discipline is that systems act and react according to the rules of men, so there is no room for doubt, chances or unpredictable behavior. These principles are followed even in the nanometer-scale applications.

    Car engines are becoming increasingly compact with a greater specific power. This reduces the weight, moving masses and fuel consumption. In the engine, however, the temperatures and pressures rise for individual components. This causes conventional pistons made of aluminium to reach their limits. The new BINE Projektinfo brochure entitled "Steel pistons for more efficient diesel engines" (14/2016) presents a cooling concept for engine pistons using a liquid metal alloy. Compared with aluminium, steel offers greater strength against thermal and mechanical loads.
