Many car enthusiasts prefer to go under the hood and learn more about their car works, both out of interest and to get some extra engine power. In this article, we will examine how CNC machining is responsible for your car’s power, the ignition system, and more.
Allow You to Start Your Car Without a Key
Many subscribers over 40 years old will remember their first cars, which require a lot of attention at the first departure, especially in cold weather. If you do not use the car for a week or two, you will often need to take the starter cables and ask your neighbor to help you open it if you want to go to work on a cold morning. The magic of CNC machining makes all this possible.
Reduce the Machine Failure Rate and Save More Energy
The part of the engine that is responsible for starting the car is called the starter motor. Computer-controlled production has become more sophisticated, and car manufacturers are producing more and more precise components. This good quality has reduced the failure rate of starter motors while at the same timeless power is needed to run the engine. How is this possible? Thanks to exceptionally precise components, the starter motor has become more efficient over time, with as few failure points as possible. That’s why your car will start again and again, whereas 20 decades ago, your home car would probably have been much more durable.
Increase Your Car’s Power and Fuel Efficiency
Another department where cars have benefited from the wonders of CNC machining is in the field of increased power. Car enthusiasts will understand American muscle cars with engines up to 6 inches or up to half a liter, but which produce only a pitiful 250-350 horsepower, incredibly inefficient! How did cars with bigger engines become so powerful? This is due to CNC machining and also the increased efficiency that comes with it. With this technology, car parts can be produced too much tighter tolerances, which means less engine wear and, therefore greater fuel and power efficiency.
Performance tuners also turn to CNC machining when they want to improve their car or truck’s performance. Racing components need to be manufactured to tighter tolerances to achieve the least amount of energy wasted and the highest performance. Modern Formula 1 engines are manufactured to such tight tolerances that their engines cannot be started cold. Instead, the engine oil must first be heated to an optimal temperature. A similar phenomenon can be observed in road cars that have been staged. Since more electricity requires a more efficient engine, the more precise parts are expected to eliminate all engine problems. For this reason, more electricity is generated, but in return, the car or tuner with normal performance will require more maintenance and service.
