The monolithic engine block is the carcass of the engine that serves a variety of purposes:
To balance the myriad, and often conflicting, demands on the engine block places very exacting technical demands on its design and manufacturing. Hence, Garima Global sources engine blocks only from the most technically advanced and leading manufacturers of engine blocks in India.
Garima Global supplies components for a wide variety of on-road, off-road, industrial and stationary applications such as: automotive (light duty) and light commercial, trucks (heavy duty), tractors (agricultural), earthmoving and construction machinery, generators, irrigation pumps, and defence / special purpose vehicles.
The brands for which we manufacture and export aftermarket products are Caterpillar, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Citroen, Cummins, Daewoo, DAF, Daihatsu, Detroit Diesel, Deutz, Fiat, Ford, Hino, Honda, Hyundai, International, Isuzu, Iveco, John Deere, Kamaz, Kia, Komatsu, Kubota, Land Rover, Leyland, Lister Petter, Lombardini, Mack, Mahindra, MAN, Massey Ferguson, Mazda, Mercedes Benz, Mitsubishi, Navistar, Nissan, Onan, Perkins, Peugeot, Renault, Scania, Suzuki, Tata, Tatra, Toyota, Ursus, UTB, Volvo, Yanmar and Zetor, amongst others.
Garima Global also export parts for air-brake compressors like Wabco, Bendix, Knorr, Cummins, Clayton Dewandre, Mercedes, Midland etc.
Garima Global has developed an extensive range of components for engine, braking, transmission, suspension, steering, chassis, electrical, lighting and other automotive sub-systems. To assist our customers with choosing the right product for their requirements we have published comprehensive catalogs with engine / vehicle models, interchange with references of OEMs and other popular aftermarket brands, fitment dimensions and other technical data. We strongly encourage you to contact us with your specific requirements so that we can email you the relevant catalogs, and we look forward to starting a mutually beneficial business relationship with you soon!
The top plate of the block is principally closed off to the outside world, with cavities and orifices present at the locations of cylinders, channels for coolants and lubricating oils and the cylinder head combustion chamber plate. This increases the rigidity of the block and has positive effect on top plate deformation, cylinder liner distortion and acoustics of the engine. However, cooling capability suffers around the TDC area since the water jacket is closed off in this area. Also the necessity to use sand cores to cast the water jacket limits the manufacturing processes to sand casting or die-casting only.
The water jacket opens into the top plate in open-deck designs. While this promotes better cooling around the TDC area it reduces the rigidity of the block. This negative effect can be ameliorated by using a metal head gasket which also permits a lower preload torque on the head bolts, further minimizing top plate deformation and cylinder warp. From a manufacturing perspective, the lack of sand cores opens up the possibility of utilizing the whole range of processes like using AlSi alloys in economical die-casting processes in conjunction with special techniques for cylinders and sleeves.
Engine blocks are manufactured from Cast Iron – GG25 / GG30 grades with lamellar graphite or GGV with vermicular graphite, and Aluminium – AlSi alloys like AlSi6Cu4 / AlSi9Cu3 (hypoeutectic) and AlSi7Cu4Mg (hypereutectic without or without heat treatment). Sand casting, chill casting and die casting are the three principal manufacturing processes used to produce engine blocks.
Every beautiful relationship starts with a simple hello. So let’s chat. It might just be the start of something memorable.
