Successful Market Entry in New Application Area
Recently, Liebherr and Hirschvogel brought a common project into serial production. The project involved developing and producing a claw for clamping injectors and inlet connectors in diesel engines. Parallel to structural-mechanical analyses, further investigations (e.g. relating to mountability) were carried out. When awarding the contract, forging was ultimately able to assert itself against competing processes due to its outstanding fatigue strength and corrosion properties.
