As you know, applications are expected to withstand many miles without breaking. “Fatigue strength” refers to the highest strength that a material can withstand without breaking. Many factors aid metal in enduring the stresses of applications. Some of these factors are cast alloys, hardness profile, heat treatment and surface condition of the material, and operating temperature. Obviously, the capability of parts to endure the trauma of the combustion engine without breaking, cracking or failing is extremely pivotal. We have a significant material’s strength database at ambient and elevated temperatures to ensure that the parts that we put in customer’s engines will stand the test of the combustion engine.
