Caterpillar and Argonne Using Additive Manufacturing to Pursue High-Efficiency Diesel Engines

March 18, 2019

Caterpillar and Argonne National Laboratories announced plans to pursue a unique approach that will combine additive manufacturing, high-performance computing and higher fidelity design and simulation models to build and test heavy-duty diesel engines that reduce emissions and improve fuel economy. Another goal of the project is to reduce manufacturing design costs and reduce the lead times needed to expand research-derived technology to industrial-scale manufacturing processes.

“We look forward to harnessing the power of both Caterpillar’s and Argonne’s industry-leading research expertise and world-class facilities to develop ground-breaking solutions for diesel engine design,” says Jon Anders, principal investigator and senior engineering specialist in the Innovation &Technology Development division at Caterpillar.
