Adjustable cam elements

Adjustable cam elements

We at thyssenkrupp have developed a solution that offers significant cost savings. It allows two- or three-stage valve lift adjustment via so-called adjustable cams. These cams have two or three different profiles arranged one beside the other. They can be moved along the shaft to control whether a valve opens at all, and if so how wide.

Another breakthrough: We are the first automotive component supplier to develop adjustable cams assembled from several parts rather than being machined from a single piece. That’s another reason why our solution is more cost-efficient than the conventional, material-intensive approach.
