Supercharger Rotor Assembly for an Automobile Engine
You are looking at a supercharger rotor assembly for an automobile engine. These marvelous works of engineering help boost the power and speed of some of the top cars on the road and help provide an optimal balance of performance and economy. Inter-twinning rotors spin to compress an air/fuel mixture into a combustion chamber for turbocharged performance.
For these rotors, a unique process was created to extrude the aluminum rotors, twisting the extrusions as they came through a die. And, as you can imagine, they are made to absolutely precise requirements so that they can turn and intertwine flawlessly and perform under extreme heat conditions. The result is pure genius. A strong, light-weight, high-performance product.
