Abstract. The durability of aluminum pistons determines the resistance of the combustion chamber of a piston (bottom) to pressure and temperature. For this reason, the condition of a combustion chamber surface must be monitored scrupulously and any incompatibilities corrected if necessary. The paper uses the eddy current method and the penetration test method for surface quality control of the combustion chamber of diesel engine pistons used in light vehicles. The aim of the study was to determine the sources of the most acute non-compliance detected by the study, using traditional quality management methods. Ultimately, the aim of the analysis was to reduce the number of non-compliant products or to eliminate them completely.
