Our channel remembered an interesting statement of nine years ago. We are talking about a very long interview from 2011 «Expert» Journal Kamaz Sergey Kogogina. Then he stated: «

Since then, 9 years have passed, the interview can be found in search engines by name

But Sergey Kogogin was confident that this goal will be achieved and argued by such words: «

In fact, a closed production cycle is characteristic of all major manufacturers of freight equipment. This usually concerns its own production of engines and gearboxes. In the USSR, when they decided to build a plant for the production of trucks on the shores of Kama, laid a full cycle. Today even

Over the past 9 years, KAMAZ has done a huge job. Already then Sergey Kogogin noted: «

On our channel we have repeatedly appealed to the topic of production

Next, Sergey Kogogin notes such a fact: «

And tell about it is a serious reason. As you know, the other day at the factory of PJSC KAMAZ held a solemn event on the occasion of release

To approach the description of the transformation and the evolution of the engine, you will have to deepen a little in history. Soon on the calendar there will be a significant date of the 45th anniversary of the release of the first engine at the factory. The first power unit for the majority of KAMAZ appeared in May 1974 in the experimental workshop of the management of the chief designer of KamAZ. Later, in December 1975, the first KAMAZ engine was assembled at the motor factory, its serial production was established.

Kogogin recalled that KAMAZ designers, their 140, well worked well. The chief designer on the engines was Nail Gatallin. With the engine originally designed in Soviet times, he made just something incredible. That old engine was a capacity of 210 horsepower. At first, all possible software for the design of modern engines was purchased. Then they tried to bring the old engine to mind with minimal investments. KAMAZ did not move onto the modern casting of the block, left the old Soviet technology.

Today, the model line is seriously upgraded and improved, the engine corresponds to the ecological standards of Euro-5. Evolution towards increasing power was as follows: an updated V-shaped eight-cylinder turbodiesel 740.30-260 The working volume of 10.86 liters with an intermediate cooling system of the upgrade air (intercooler) developed the power of 260 hp At 2200 rpm and issued a maximum torque of 1078 nm in the range of 1200-1400 rpm. Later there was a 360-strong version with an increased up to 130 mm piston stroke and a working volume of 11.76 liters with an increased to 18.0 degree of compression. Further modernization led to the creation of a 400-strong motor.

From the constructive, the engine model 740.735-400 changed the power diagram of the cylinder block in order to give greater hardness, increased by 5 mm radius of crank and new reinforced bolts of fixing the covers of the indigenous bearings (larger diameter) are applied. Upgraded lubrication and cooling systems. To meet the requirements of the fifth environmental class, the engine is equipped with an electronically controlled COMMON Rail power system.

The upgraded diesel engine remains in the ranks, in addition to the 400-strong version on KAMAZ, the 300-strong model with an index 740.705-300 is installed. These motors will still remain in the ranks.

However, the main priority is today this is a new KAMAZ 6-cylinder row motor series 910. The team moves to the goal — to master the mass production of a completely new KAMAZ engine. Our channel told that the KAMAZ was developed and launched in the production of a row six-cylinder engine P6 with a capacity of 400 to 700 hp, ecological class Euro-5. Production facilities have been created for the manufacture of 12 thousand engines per year. This power unit is provided for installation on promising cars

But on this, the critical national leader of commercial vehicles is not going to rest on the laurels. Now his project
