Metric Automotive Engineering has released Caterpillar® C9, C13 and C15 crankshafts from IPD into the local aftermarket. This follows on from IDP’s successful crankshafts for older generation Cat® engines such as the 3306, 3406 and 3408. The crankshafts are all fully certified by Lloyds of London and double-checked by Metric Automotive Engineering.
Metric Automotive Engineering represents IPD in the local market, an aftermarket provider of engine components for heavy-duty diesel and natural gas powered engines based in the United States. IPD has been synonymous with quality, innovation and service since 1955. Caterpillar® replacement parts are manufactured in a Lloyds accredited ISO 9001:2000 quality controlled environment.
The significance of the new-generation Cat crankshafts from IPD is that the older-generation engines are 30+ years old, with the new-generation engines coming up on their first service life. However, there are not a lot of good core components available for the newer engines. Therefore Metric Automotive Engineering is focusing more on the next generation engines.
