Xinde to boost performance, production of 6CT/6LT diesel engines

  • 18-Jul-2011 09:24 EDT

Xinde Technology Co. expects to complete construction of a new 3000-m2 (32,300-ft2) workshop dedicated to the production of 6CT/6LT series diesel engines in December. On completion, production capacity for the new combustion engines will increase to 50,000 units annually. The Weifang, China-based manufacturer reports domestic sales of more than 1000 units since their introduction in May 2010. Xinde Technology also claims to have developed a new “performance-enhancing design breakthrough” that has been tested in cooperation with Tianjin University and is now being incorporated in its 6CT/6LT series of four- and six-cylinder diesels. Produced by its wholly owned Huaxin Diesel Engine Co. Ltd., the engines are used in generator sets, engineering machinery, and vehicles. The new design is said to increase the travel of the pistons without changing the diameter of the cylinders, thereby increasing the compressed air density. The result, according to the company, is “stronger explosiveness, more thorough combustion, and improved dynamic force,” resulting in “more stable performance and greatly improved reliability.”
