Connecting rods

Connecting Rod background

Our goal is to build the finest connecting rods money can buy. We use our patented and latest technology in composites available at any price. Our proprietary  Polymer Matrix Composites (PMCs) are lightweight, high strength, high temperature fiber reinforced composites capable of withstanding a wide range of challenging thermal and environmental conditions. We have the most advanced materials, which allows us to construct components that can withstand the harsh environments presented inside of an engine, and the corresponding strength and reliability necessary to justify the cost. We employ the capability to dramatically change the material properties through customization of fiber types, architecture, resin system, fiber spacing, and fiber volume. Our unique patented design/technology is isotopically stable at all temperatures in a cycle of operation inside an internal combustion engine. Further specialization is achieved through the integration of vertical plane steps, chamfered corners, and selective yarn placement, providing enhanced transitional performance. While all PMCs take advantage of the combined property benefits of a tailored fiber and matrix system, only our exclusive supplier’s solution uses a proprietary weaving technique that improves material performance by using uncrimped fibers and placing fiber reinforcements in three or more directions, even at equal fiber volumes. The unparalleled strength provided by the uncrimped fiber reinforcement results in unique benefits that are made available only in our components. AWA has yet another patented process which seals and mitigates the inherent problem of “fluid uptake,” which as we know, would be the end of any laminate product. Each connecting rod is custom made to order specifically for the customer/builder. Our typical connecting rod is about half of the weight of a comparable aluminum connecting rod.  The lead time is approximately 30 days from the placement of order unless otherwise noted. Connecting rods will be available beginning the 1st quarter of 2018. (PATENT PENDING)

Wrist pins

Our patented wrist pins are a work of art, the ultimate in performance engineering. We fuse aerospace grade titanium with our proprietary  Polymer Matrix Composites (PMCs) as an insert in the hollow of the wrist pin. The wrist pin (2.250 X .842) in the photograph weighs 57 grams ! This patented technology allows for the strength of tool steel, but the weight of aluminum! While all PMCs take advantage of the combined property benefits of a tailored fiber and matrix system, only our supplier’s solution uses a proprietary weaving technique that improves material performance by using uncrimped fibers and placing fiber reinforcements in three or more directions, even at equal fiber volumes. The unparalleled strength provided by the uncrimped fiber reinforcement results in unique benefits that are made available only in our components. AWA has yet another patented process which seals and mitigates the inherent problem of “fluid uptake,” which as we know, would be the end of any laminate product. All wrist pins are available on a made to order basis, however, we may inventory the more popular sizes, otherwise, the lead time will be 30 days beginning the 1st quarter of 2018. (PATENT PENDING)

Carbon Fiber Pushrods

Carbon Fiber Push RodsAWA has identified a need for lightweight pushrods. The inherent need for lighter yet stronger components has led our team of engineers to look at the current design of a racing pushrod. Our unique patented design shapes our Polymer Matrix Composites (PMCs) into a tubing form using our proprietary weaving technique that improves material performance by using uncrimped fibers and placing fiber reinforcements in three or more directions, even at equal fiber volumes. The unparalleled strength provided by the uncrimped fiber reinforcement results in unique benefits that are made available only in our components. This patented design integrates the use of aerospace grade titanium tubing and conventional tips (application specific). AWA has yet another patented process which seals and mitigates the inherent problem of “fluid uptake,” which as we know, would be the end of any laminate product. All pushrods will be available on a made to order basis with a lead time of 30 days beginning the 1st quarter 2018. (PATENT PENDING)
