With a background in high performance engines, Alcon’s design team specialises in powertrain component design, whether individual parts, sub-assemblies or complete clean-sheet design. In addition our reverse engineering services offer re-design and supply of new components enabling clients with Historic cars the opportunity to rebuild / make new powertrain components including engine blocks, cylinder heads etc. Our engineers have many years’ experience in achieving optimum design characteristics for pistons & connecting rod assemblies, camshafts & valvetrains, crankshafts, inlet systems and major castings such as cylinder heads and blocks. FEA is used extensively and is an essential design tool. Careful consideration is given to meet life requirements while achieving optimum mass and performance.
Catia V5 is used as a primary design tool in conjunction with Dassault’s Smarteam data management software.
Ansys Structural FEA software is used for linear and non-linear, thermal and fatigue analysis.
