Eaton launches next-generation variable valvetrains

ABR Staff Writer Published 08 September 2011

Eaton, a provider of truck and automotive drivetrain and powertrain systems, has launched the next- generation variable valvetrain systems for high-speed overhead camshaft engines in India.

Over the next three years the company's new cylinder deactivation and variable valve lift systems will be debuted with multiple global automakers.

The company's cylinder deactivation system is designed for engines with overhead camshaft valvetrains and works smoothly with the engine management system to reduce engine displacement when full power is not needed.

The next- generation variable valvetrain system is comprised of a deactivation rocker arm and oil control valve.

Eaton India executive director of automotive division Ramchandra Rao said these offerings represent substantial cost savings for the consumer and the company is glad to expand its portfolio in India.

"We optimised the system in response to the growing consumer demand for overhead cam, multi-valve engines," Rao said.
