From Idea To Prototype

The origins of the free-piston engine go as far back as the 1920s. The DLR picked up the basic idea again in the 2000s (albeit with a different design). In this context it has been possible to demonstrate that the concept is very promising and can also be realised in practice today. Go here for the press release and an animated film:

The next major steps that the SWEngin company is now embarking on are the development of the technology and the building of a prototype. More information about the development history will follow soon. You can also follow the ongoing work in our News-Section.
