Trends in motor design: downsizing

In general:

Downsizing describes the method, by which „smaller“ motors reach the same performance data as motors with larger cubic capacity. 
 

hofer-approach:

The starting point ist an optimised fuel consumption and associated reduction of the emission by at least equivalent driving performance.
Our approach takes into account the following points:
•
  • Reducing of the cylinders´ number
  • Reducing of the swept volume
  • Tribologic charecteristics
  • Simulation and virtual testing
  • Charging concepts
  • Valve train concepts
  • Compaction concepts
  • Oil content concepts
  • Cooling system concept
  • New technologies: hybrid, immediate-start etc.
