In today’s video, Mark Campbell at COMP Cams walks us through the four primary types of camshaft cores.
Cam cores, or an unground lobe camshaft (UGL), are essentially unfinished camshafts, as you’ll see in the video.
These are cams waiting to be machined and ground to precision for various applications.
The four different camshaft core types are:
- Cast Iron Core
- Austempered Iron Core
- 8620 Billet Core
- Tool Steel
In the video, Campbell covers each one individually and dives deeper into each one to explain material choice and design details that will ultimately affect the performance and power-making abilities of whatever engines they ultimately end up in.
