Whether for cruise ships, stationary diesel or gas power plants, container ships or tankers: maximum service life, the highest possible economic efficiency and unconditional availability are essential factors of success. Leading manufacturers of main engines, diesel generators and auxiliary diesel engines worldwide rely on the functional surface solutions of STI Group when highest requirements must be met precisely and short reaction times are a must.
The service range includes the hard chrome surfacing and grinding of piston ring grooves, of new and worn piston crowns of 2- and 4-stroke engines and the coating of piston rings, piston skirts, cylinder liners, cylinder heads, crank shafts, valves and other components. These components are surface treated by STI Group for use in ship diesel engines, diesel power stations, gas engines or heavy fuel oil engines (HFO) and dual fuel engines (DF).
Specifically developed STI coating systems give piston tops, rings, skirts and rods, cylinder liners, turbine rotors, crankshafts, valves and other transmission components and engine components the required precision and wear and corrosion resistance.
The STI Group's research and development department, engineers and process specialists develop individual customer solutions such as surfaces with defined topography, tribological properties and lubricating capacity.
