The new Ginkob product is more adaptable than the retarder and will pay for itself much faster

2016-08-25


Engine braking is increasingly recognised by drivers for its ability to significantly reduce wear and tear on the brakes and for its more reliable operation. The general principle of engine braking is to use the engine's compression stroke to generate compression resistance, internal friction and intake and exhaust resistance to form a braking effect on the drive wheels and thus slow down.

US-based GinkgoBot, the world's leading manufacturer of heavy-duty diesel engine retarder and valve drive systems, has developed an HPD engine brake system that fundamentally improves the original engine brake technology, providing twice the braking power of conventional compression engine braking at low truck speeds, increasing load capacity for drivers by 175kg and reducing total costs by €3,500. The HPD engine braking system will also be presented at the Hannover Motor Show in September this year.

The HPD engine braking system from Allcomb converts a four-stroke engine into a two-stroke engine by closing the intake and exhaust valves. In contrast, conventional engine braking systems involve a process of compression and exhaust and gas circulation with each revolution of the cam. The innovative two-stroke technology from GinkgoBot gives the driver a good balance between acceleration, deceleration and fuel efficiency, providing the same deceleration power for small and medium displacement diesel and natural gas engines as for larger displacement engines.

From test data, the HPD engine braking system is 1.5 times faster than conventional compression braking during normal engine operation and 2 times faster than compression braking during low engine speed operation. The system uses a correction cam to deliver 2000Nm of braking torque at 1300rmp and 611kW of braking power at 2500rpm in a 13 litre engine. It is fair to say that HPD engine braking has the edge when it comes to braking performance.

Allcomb HPD engine braking systems have been developed to provide higher engine braking performance at low engine speeds and to improve temperature management to match existing trends such as the downsizing of engines by various vehicle companies, resulting in higher fuel economy and lower total costs. Developments in engine braking deceleration performance can significantly reduce the natural slowdown caused by wind resistance, engine, drive chain and tyre drag.

In addition, the use of standard parts for the HPD engine braking technology significantly reduces costs and, because only a small part of the hydraulic reduction unit is used, allows the driver who purchases the unit to have a quick payback within six months, which is an advantage compared to the two and a half years it takes for a normal hydraulic reduction unit to pay for itself.

Warmly celebrate the company passed the TS16949 quality certification system Limited

Excellent quality and efficient management is our core competitiveness, expand market sales, and through the TS16949 quality system certification, the company is on stage before the recognition of the work, but also the future goals and encouragement. In the company's accurate cooperation and careful preparation, our company in September 2005 ushered in the AQA international certification company for our company to implement the TS16949 quality system audit. And in January 2006 passed the examination and got the certificate.

Internal combustion engine development to focus on safety and rationality

On April 13, the 8th International Symposium on Internal Combustion Engine Reliability Technology was held in Beijing. Huang Guoliang, Director of the Bureau of Quality Development of the State Administration of Market Supervision and Administration, said that in the future, no matter how new energy develops, internal combustion engines are indispensable for production and life. In the process of internal combustion engine reliability research, it is important to focus on both speed and passion, and safety and rationality.
