Champion Screw Machine provides the actuation cams that are essential for optimum machine performance. The correct choice of cams can enhance a machine’s speed and part quality.

The company provides an extensive line of cams for the screw machine industry as well as other cam-driven applications. This includes cams for Acme-Gridley, Conomatic, New Britain, Tornos-Bechler; Euroturn, Shütte, Gildemeister, Davenport, Wickman, MAS33, Goss & DeLeeuw and other machines. It manufactures many styles of cams, fitting all multi-spindle slide positions including drum/cylindrical style cams, flat/plate cams, internal-path cams and others, for various applications, which include pickoff, backworking, thread rolling, stamping, radial or axial thread cutting and non-standard cycle cams.

The company also has the capability to engineer special cams to fit custom needs as well as solve specific problems by decreasing tool wear and increasing production with chipbreaking cams or multiple-rise cams. It can also reverse-engineer existing special cams.

    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.
