- Manufactured using Pot casting method , producing a short cylinder of oval cross- section from which the rings are machined in a cam turning lathe.
- This produces a balanced and homogenous casting around the entire circumference of the ring.
- The lathe is equipped with an interchangeable copying cam , which controls the cutting tool
- By changing the shape or ovality of the cam , the circumferential pressure distribution at the ring can be altered
The electrohydraulic control mechanisms of the ME engine replace the following components of the conventional MC engine: Chain drive for camshaft Camshaft with fuel cams, exhaust cams and indicator cams Fuel pump actuating gear, including roller guides and reversing mechanism Conventional fuel pressure booster and VIT system Exhaust valve actuating gear and roller guides Engine driven starting air distributor Electronic governor with actuator Regulating shaft Engine side control console Mechanical cylinder lubricators. The Engine Control System of the ME engine comprises: Control units Hydraulic power supply unit Hydraulic cylinder units, including: Electronically controlled fuel injection, and Electronically controlled exhaust valve activation Electronically controlled starting air valves Electronically controlled auxiliary blowers Integrated electronic governor functions Tacho system Electronically controlled Alpha lubricators
