Axial engines sometimes known as barrel or Z-crank engines are a type of reciprocating engine with pistons arranged around an output shaft with their axes parallel to the shaft. Barrel refers to the cylindrical shape of the cylinder group result of the pistons being spaced evenly around the central crankshaft and aligned parallel to the crankshaft axis whilst the Z-crank alludes to the shape of the crankshaft. As a result, it is a very compact, cylindrical engine, allowing variation in compression ratio of the engine while running. In a swashplate engine the piston rods stay parallel with the shaft, and piston side-forces that cause excessive wear can be eliminated almost completely.
We have been almost overrun with requests for engines, information and cooperation after our very successful exhibition at the world's largest airshow in Oshkosh. We will make sure we get back to all of you as quick as we can; no information request will remain unanswered. We hope that we will finalise our plans with the right cooperation partners soon and that there will be a Duke engine in the market available for you in the near future. What are the major advantages of the Duke Engine? What other advantages does the Duke Engine possess? What is the performance of the Duke Engine? What engineering challenges face the Duke Engine?

Over the last few decades, there have been some astounding technological advances in the world of motorcycles. Wiz Bang electronics that rival fighter jet avionics, space-age chassis construction, Italian built brakes that can stop a freight train, and engine components constructed of rare elements—these are normal attributes for motorcycles on the showroom floor. In this day and age has the development of new technologies reached their crescendo? If you ask someone at New Zealand -based Duke Engines , you'd get a firm no. Duke may have the next evolutionary step in gas-burning engines that may see its way to motorcycles: the axial. The Duke axial engine is arguably one of the most advanced gas-burning engines ever made, but has it come it too late? As we're constantly reporting on advances in electric power, is the gas engine done for good regardless of the engineering power?
