GST supplies grinding machines for the new 4-cylinder crankshaft line of BMW Steyr
In 2020 and 2021, the machines will be installed at the BMW Steyr plant and implemented into the series production of 4-cylinder crankshafts. “Our technically open machine concept has given us an edge over our market competitors in terms of quality and price, an advantage we were able to exploit in the negotiations”, explains Günter Hacker, Managing Director of Sales and Technology.
There is no doubt at GST that internal combustion engines cannot be written off for a long time yet. After all, all other technologies face the same challenges - environment and resources. The match between the drive technologies seems to be open in every direction.
“But even changes towards e-mobility can't scare us. An estimated 50% of all electro-rotors for passenger cars made worldwide are produced on GST grinding machines. In this segment as well, we have convincing solutions that put us far ahead of our competitors" says Günter Hacker, Head of the GST Technology department, with conviction.
