Metaldyne and Stackpole enter into Joint Technical Agreement

August 27, 2014

Metaldyne, LLC and Stackpole International, Engineered Products Division, have agreed to share technology under a technical agreement to allow both companies to expand their product offerings in line with engine fuel efficiency trends. Specifically, the combined expertise of both companies, it is stated, will support their abilities to offer engine balance shaft systems with integrated variable displacement oil pumps.


Metaldyne and Stackpole will work together to design

balance shaft assembly systems 

“We are pleased to work with Stackpole on providing technical solutions in balance shaft assemblies for the light vehicle engine market,” stated Thomas Amato, President and CEO, Metaldyne, LLC. “We look forward to the partnership and providing added value to our customers,” added Peter Ballantyne, President and CEO, Stackpole International.

Metaldyne is a leading global provider of balance shaft systems, using an integrated approach to design, develop and manufacture custom products for its customers’ engines. Metaldyne’s technology provides important force cancellation and is able to integrate critical functions of an engine’s oil pump.

Stackpole International is a leading global provider of “black box” pump solutions for powertrain systems. The company continues to lead the optimisation and commercialisation of variable displacement oil pumps, which it pioneered 20 years ago, and currently has approximately 30 million variable displacement pumps in the field. The flexibility and responsiveness of variable displacement oil pumps has become an in-demand feature for fuel efficient powertrain manufacturers.

With this technical alliance, Metaldyne and Stackpole will work together to design balance shaft assembly systems, based on Metaldyne’s balance shaft system technology combined with Stackpole’s variable displacement oil pump technology.
