Automotive Camless Piston Engine Market: Introduction
A cam is a rotating mechanical linkage used to convert the rotary motion into linear motion. Instead of using conventional cams, poppet valves or free valves are operated by hydraulic, electromagnetic or pneumatic based actuators which are installed in a free valve engine also known as a camless engine. Elimination of traditional camshaft gives more control over the valvetrain. Better economy, light engine weight and high performance is achieved by the implementation of camless piston engines.
The free valves come in three types; electromechanical poppet valves, electromechanical ball valves and electrohydraulic poppet valves. The camless valves actuators have numerous benefits such as increased durability and engine life and allow different types of fuels such as diesel, gas or alcohol without any mechanical changes. Combining high pressure direct fuel injection system with camless valve technology will further reduce the fuel consumption. Increased overall valvetrain efficiency because of reduction in frictional losses of the camshaft. Camless piston engine is controlled by a computer which eliminates the risk of any mechanical failure caused due to direction changing malfunction.
For decades, researchers have been developing prototypes and testing new versions of valve actuation. No measurable wear has been noticed after testing in extreme conditions and for millions of cycles. These engines are comparatively expensive but have a long lifespan, run efficiently with less required maintenance.
Automotive Camless Piston Engine Market: Dynamics
