A piston is an essential component of reciprocating engines, pneumatic cylinders, gas compressors and other similar mechanisms. The piston is the moving component which is made gas-tight by piston rings and is contained by a cylinder. This components as such has a different purpose in an engine compared to the one it has in a pump. But be that as it may, if you want to know how an engine is evolving, you have to cross-examine the pistons.
The piston is the one components that tells the story about the engine in resides in. Simply put, much things revolve around and depend on the piston of the engine itself. Moreover, a piston’s design and technology can say a lot about the challenges and the wider trends that the automotive industry is facing. In other words, if the automotive goes, so does the engine; and if the engine goes, so goes the piston. So, why is the piston so important, how is it made and how does it work?
