Why Use CAD / CAM Services for Piston Design in CATIA
With the increase in the use of automobiles, the demand for automobile components has also increased. The reason for this increased demand for automobile components is their improved performance and reduced cost. Today, it’s becoming more and more important for R&D and testing engineers to develop critical components in shortest possible time to minimize launch time for new products. Part of this development process is understanding the technologies and processes involved in the development of automobile components and an example of this is a piston design in CATIA.
A piston is a moving component contained by a cylinder and made gas-tight by a piston rings. In an engine, the purpose of a piston is to transfer from expanding gas in the cylinder to the craft shaft via a piston rod and/or connecting rod. As it is an important engine part, a piston bears the cyclic gas pressure and inertia forces at work and this working condition may cause the fatigue damage of a piston. For this reason, modeling the piston appropriately is essential and what better way to ensure that than using CAD / CAM services for designing a piston in CATIA.
CAD / CAM services will design the piston according to the procedure and specification which are given in machine design and data handbooks. Following are some of the things you can expect when using CAD / CAM services for a piston design in CATIA:
- Enormous a piston strength to withstand the high pressure
- Minimum a piston weight to withstand the inertia forces
- A piston that forms effective oil sealing in the cylinder
- A piston that provides sufficient bearing area to prevent undue wear
- A piston having high-speed reciprocation without noise
- A piston of sufficiently rigid construction that can withstand thermal and mechanical distortions
- A piston having sufficient support for its pin
The above are just a few of the many benefits of hiring CAD / CAM services to model a piston using CATIA software. CAD / CAM services know the best practices to design a piston using CATIA and thus can provide manufacturers seeking a piston production with many benefits. Some of them are stated above.
