A Model Camshaft Grinding Process
Optimizing a camshaft lobe grinding cycle has traditionally been based less on science and more on educated guesswork and numerous test grinds. Now, computer thermal modeling software can predict areas where lobe burning is likely to occur, in order to determine the fastest possible work speed that won't thermally damage lobes and greatly reduce the number of requisite test grinds.
Centerless Grinding: Not Magic!
Achieving consistent and quality results from the centerless grinding process requires an understanding of the basic fundamentals.
