The camshaft is the most crucial part of an internal combustion engine. Its main function is to control the valve timing, thereby allowing the intake valve
to open at the right time for feeding air and fuel mixture into the engine. Camshafts are basically the lobes, which are fitted in the engine of a vehicle for giving the exhaust enough time to escape out of the combustion space. Automobile uses two basic types of camshafts namely flat tappet shaft and roller tappet shaft. The other types of camshafts are race camshaft, overhead camshaft, double overhead camshaft, exhaust camshaft, and intake camshaft. The camshafts installed in automobiles are mostly constructed of modular cast iron and are induction hardened for preventing wear and tear. Other materials used for making camshafts are steel, stainless steel, copper, bronze, and brass. The different types of auto parts of camshaft include camshaft locking plates
, camshaft bearing
and more. The core production regions of camshafts in the world are Detroit, Frankfurt, Munich, Taipei Hsien, Shanghai, Fujian, Taichung, Changzhou and Singapore.
