OEM Piston Rings…

OEM Piston Rings…

…what every piston ring manufacturer wishes for at Christmas.

What’s under your office Christmas tree this year?

Under the QIN tree are some FAI rings about to head out to a new international OEM customer, with whom we look forward to doing a lot more work in 2021.

And yes, we know it’s a bit niche…!

We take the opportunity to wish a Merry Christmas to all our contacts and customers who celebrate it. Have a good, restful & peaceful break, and we look forward to working with you again in what will hopefully very soon become a much more normal New Year…

What’s In A Name?

What’s In A Name?

For those of you who didn’t know, QIN = Industriale

As we speak with new piston ring contacts around the world, quite often they tell us something like “why haven’t we heard of you before?”. To which our answer is “you probably have”.

We’re the 21st century regeneration of the business founded in 1956 and previously known simply as Industriale. Industriale piston rings achieved widespread market recognition over the decades as the business in turn span out of Coppers into Fiat and then from Fiat into DAROS piston rings in the early 1990s, where we became the 4-Stroke arm of the DAROS 2-Stroke piston ring business for 15 years or so.

In 2007 there was a final change of hands, from DAROS into private ownership under a new management team. And that is where we are today.

Our logo and tagline used to reflect this heritage, showing our full name Quality Industriale from which QIN is derived. But within our 2020 rebranding we have moved onto a new tagline “Piston Ring Excellence” which says more about what we bring to those who choose to work with us as of 2020.

However, we are proud of our heritage and will always carry the Industriale piston rings name and history with us.

Call us QIN (and pronounce it “QUIN” or “Q.I.N.” as you prefer) or call us Industriale. We don’t mind, just as long as you call us!

Anti-Polishing Rings Anyone?

Anti-Polishing Rings Anyone?

Just in case you weren’t aware, we do APRs too…

Here’s a little composition which Sara in the office made today of three of an order of a few dozen rings compatible with the Wartsila 26 engine, which have now been collected and are on their way to a long-time customer of ours in the Middle East region.

So, whilst the manufacture of highly technical compression rings with the latest chrome ceramic coating technology for modern 4-Stroke engines forms the majority of what we do (along with the less technical lower rings within the set), it isn’t all that we do.

New website. New brochure. New logo. New vision.

And it’s not all marketing fluff…

Drawing upon our 64 years of experience in the four-stroke piston ring business (starting under our previous name of Industriale S.r.l.), we’re now bringing to the front and centre the very many compelling reasons that our existing customers right around the world already work with us.

in the process, we’ll hopefully be able to persuade some new ones to join them.

Maybe one of them will be you…

As it says on the front of our business cards these days, QIN (or Quality Industriale, to give us our full title) delivers Piston Ring Excellence – proven over millions of engine hours since 1956.

And as it says on the back of those same cards, our 3 pillars of QIN excellence are Advanced Technology on Short Lead Times at Competitive Prices.

From compression rings with chrome ceramic coatings which are compatible with the most modern diesel and gas engines from the world’s leading OEMs to older designs and technology for legacy engines, under our roof you will find 25,000+ piston rings – as well as an abundance of expertise, which is delivered with both an in-depth understanding of the large-bore diesel and gas engine business as well as a friendly smile.
