Nissan: Nissan GT-R production tech brings bling to new Altima engine

Posted on 25. Apr, 2019 by in Nissan Canada


DECHERD, Tennessee – A special production technique customarily indifferent for supercars has found a approach into a all-new 2019 Nissan Altima 2.5-liter engine.

Inside a 4 cylinders of a engine retard is where Nissan’s state-of-the-art counterpart gimlet routine is used to revoke attrition and urge efficiency. The treatment, initial used in a Nissan GT-R and practical to other specialty models like a Sentra NISMO, helps engines run uniformly by expelling a need for massive cylinder liners.



The Decherd public line combined counterpart gimlet apparatus for a launch of a Altima – creation it a top volume focus of a record within Nissan. The group in Decherd assembles an engine each 19 seconds and is able of building about 1.4 million engines a year.

“Advanced record like a counterpart gimlet routine customarily creates clarity for Nissan if we can offer it to as many business as possible,” pronounced Jay Boyte, executive of engineering during Decherd Powertrain Plant, Nissan North America. “The finish outcome is an innovative and fit engine done with production record customarily not accessible during this volume or cost point,” combined Boyte.

The routine involves spraying and polishing a cylindrical space inside a engine in that a piston moves. During a spraying phase, sparks fly as charged steel handle is blown regulating gas to mangle a element and cloak a inside of a cylinders. The density of a cloaking customarily needs to be about 200 microns (0.2 millimeters) – or about twice a density of a tellurian hair (100 microns) or 3 times thicker than a pellet of salt (60 microns).

In a second stage, a special cavalcade bit is used containing little pieces of diamonds that were non-professional for jewelry. The bit is spun during high speed inside a cylinder to gloss a steel until glossy and well-spoken – giving a routine a “mirror bore’ name and a cylinder walls a contemplative surface. The H2O practical during this theatre is dictated to keep a machine and metals during best temperatures and revoke friction.

The Nissan Decherd Powertrain Assembly Plant is a highest-volume engine plant in a U.S., convention some-more than 1 million engines annually; and scarcely 13 million given opening in 1997. The 1.1 million square-foot trickery is located about 90 miles southeast of Nashville and employs 1,700 people.

Nissan Decherd now assembles engines for Nissan Altima, Maxima, Rogue, Pathfinder, Frontier, TITAN and INFINITI QX60, as good as motors for a all-electric Nissan LEAF.
