ALMET manufactures pistons by means of modern technology.
ALMET operates its own foundry, where all pistons are cast from aluminum alloys. The pistons are cast by gravity casting into metal molds. The production uses predominantly automated casting machines and robotic workplaces. Manually operated molds are used for large pistons and small series.
Our design department uses the knowledge and many years experience with the production of pistons.
ALMET provides the following design activities:
- design and construction of mold equipment for piston casting
- design and construction of devices for pistons machining
We develop pistons for new combustion engines and we focus on improvement of their parameters in terms of power, fuel and oil consumption, emissions, life span and reliability.
In development we rely on our extensive knowledge and experience in the field. We promote cooperation between our department of design, technology and development and the Institute for Motor Vehicle Research in Prague and the Technical University in Liberec.
ALMET has developed pistons that comply with EURO VI standards for TATRA engines and pistons that comply with Stage III A standards for tractor engines.
ALMET pistons were used in the racing vehicle engines of KAMAZ MASTER team in the 2013 Dakar Rally in South America. The victory of the KAMAZ vehicles in this competition's challenging conditions confirmed the high quality of ALMET pistons.
