Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0911493A2] An ultra light poppet valve (11) having increased stiffness at its tip end. The valve includes a stem (13) which is formed as a thin-walled, elongated cup member having a closed tip portion (19) and a flared open end (17). To which a disk-like cap member (15) is fixed. The stiffness of the tip is increased by various means including members (43;61) added to the tip portion (19), members (47;49) inserted within the tip portion, hard surfaces (53;53a) deposited on the tip portion, and members (43b;73) inserted within openings (71) in the end of the tip portion. <IMAGE>
