Cost-effective quality

Operators of earthmoving and mining equipment are facing a challenging period. The slump in commodity prices has had a major adverse impact on mining operations and a further knock-on effect on infrastructure delivery programmes.

Enterprising fleet owners and operators have struck a perfect balance between the cost and the quality of the parts they use in their diesel engines, by using quality aftermarket parts that offer a more cost-effective alternative to original parts.

Metric Automotive Engineering is the southern African distributor of IPD Parts, which are being used by some of the country’s leading operators of ‘yellow’ and ‘white’ metal for their diesel engine maintenance and remanufacturing requirements. These parts are manufactured in a state-of-the-art factory that carries ISO 9001 certification.

IPD Parts’ ongoing investment into research and development has produced its patented new friction welded one-piece piston. By combining the crown and skirt, the piston is better placed to withstand thermal loading, while limiting plate movement and securing the oil gallery retention plate firmly in place.
