The air or more importantly oxygen, is so critical for the combustion process. This flow reaches the engine via an air intake system. A good air intake system ensures a clean, uniform and low resistance flow of air resulting in more power and improved fuel consumption
Challenging Component requirements
Modern combustion engines are becoming increasingly complex. This is because they have to offer more power to enable OEM engine downsizing strategies while at the same time minimizing fuel consumption and meeting ever stricter emission standards. In this context, air intake systems are required to meet increasingly higher temperatures while maintaining filter performance, uniform air flow, and acoustic sound quality.
Air Box - Performance in one component
We have also developed a component specifically for motorcycles, which combines the air intake system and intake manifold in one component. As a complete solution, the Air Box from Röchling Automotive ensures that air constantly reaches the engine and is distributed evenly to the cylinder heads. The box thus optimizes fuel consumption and makes the engine more efficient.
