Maximator Testing & Production Systems – Autofrettage Technology


Autofrettage is a manufacturing process for highly pressurized components. Industry branches such as shipping, aviation, or heavy vehicle construction use innovative technology to significantly increase the service life of components and therefore reduce costs.


  • Maximator systems can autofrettage:
    • Diesel injection technology components (common rails,
    injection nozzles, pump housings, injection nozzle holders and diesel lines)
    • High pressure technology components (pipes, fittings,
    components and high pressure pumps etc.)
    • Inner high pressure moulding components
    • Water jet technology components
    Application areas in the process
    • Autofrettage system for prototypes - in development
    or sampling for research and development, individual component autofrettage and small batches
    • System for series products – in production
