Using forged or cast parts, Capricorn Automotive produces crankshafts and other rotating assemblies used primarily for motorsports as well as the off-highway industry. The company's in-house modeling and analytical capabilities improve the design and development of the crankshafts, which feature innovative materials and technologies and adhere to industry requirements. The company supports development programs from early billet prototypes to pre- and full-production, thereby shortening the development cycle and reducing time to market.
