Research and Development

The goal of research is to turn market needs into development projects which are followed through to start of production. Developed products and processes meet certified quality standards and economic and ecological requirements.

With the position of the internal combustion engine assured for the coming decades, the market is demanding further reductions in consumption and emissions, combined with improved performance. GOETZE is prepared for these challenges. Improvements are achieved by increasing material performance and enhancing the base materials through the use of coatings.

New scientific information is reviewed for potential applicability to piston rings and cylinder liners. Drawing on this information, novel material and process technologies for these products are developed. After successful prototype testing the products are released for serial production.

With the continuing development of IC engines, much tougher demands have to be met with regard to engine parameters and characteristics. This also means that newly developed technologies must meet stricter quality standards.

Federal-Mogul Quality is integrated throughout all processes, i.e. Quality refers to all actions, procedures, materials and processes, including administration. No area of the company is left out. It is this quality that makes GOETZE the brand of choice for piston rings and cylinder liners. Certifications by recognized institutes and satisfied customers testify to this.
