Connecting Rods

Connecting Rods are also known as Con rods that transmit motion (especially, one that connects a rotating wheel to a reciprocating shaft).In relation with piston engine, the connecting rods connect the piston to the crank or crankshaft and are generally made of steel for production engines. These are also be made of aluminum or titanium and operate by connecting one end of a rod which is intended to follow a circular path, while the other end follows a path along a straight line or curve of large radius. The con rod is under tremendous stress from the reciprocating load represented by the piston, actually stretching and relaxing with every rotation, and the load increases rapidly with increasing engine speed. This is the reason why while building a high performance engine, great attention is paid to the con rods by following techniques as grinding the edges of the rod to a smooth radius, balancing all con rod/piston assemblies to the same weight. This all is done so as to prevent sudden failure of con rods under stress.

Forged connecting rods are manufactured with the process of heating, hammering and beating the metal in order to transform it into a shape. The hot steel forging process develops connecting rods that are used for all kinds of Light Motor Vehicle & Heavy Duty Vehicles. Kayjayforgings are the famous manufacturers & exporters of connecting rods. Some of their other forging products like Custom Connecting Rods, Forged connecting rods, crankshafts and many more. They not only deal in forged products but also other machined & precision sheet metal components for automotive sector like Brake Pedals, Gear Shift Lever, and Lever kick Starters etc. Many prominent automobile companies are the buyers of the Kay Jay's extraordinary product line.
