        HELLER CBC process chain

      • HELLER expands the process chain in crankcase manufacturing – comprising qualification, pre-machining and finish-machining – by the CBC CylinderBoreCoating process. CBC is a technology for the coating of cylinder bores of aluminium crankcases using electric arc wire spraying. For this new process, HELLER has developed the CBC 200 coating module.

        Highlights
        • The CBC technology is a dependable process used in high-volume combustion engine production
        • The CBC coating results in a 50% reduction in friction forces between the cylinder and the piston ring
        • The elimination of cast liners enables a more compact crankcase design and significantly reduced cylinder bore spacing. This results in a reduction in engine size and weight savings
        • All cylinder surfaces of current passenger car and truck engines with bore diameters ranging from 70mm to 150mm can be coated using the CBC process

        Process
        • Qualification/inspection
        • Pre-machining including fineboring and roughing of cylinder surfaces on a HELLER MC 20 machining module
        • Heating of the crankcase
        • Coating of the cylinder surfaces without structural changes of the aluminium base material in the CBC 200 coating module
        • Precise finish-machining including hard fineboring on a HELLER MC 20 machining module and final „Spiegel-Honen“ (polishing by honing)
