What is camshaft parkerizing? Parco is a Phosphoric Acid which etches our camshaft lobes to provide assistance for the running in process.
When oil is applied to the “Parco” surface the small microscopic valleys keeps oil adhered to the lobe to insure a smooth break in procedure.
Post Grind & Polish, the journals are taped and the cam lobes are treated in the Parco Etch Tank. Once finished all camshafts are inspected by hand to ensure highest quality before packaging and shipment.
An essential step in the manufacturing process.
Behind the Kelford Cams Premium Brand
Why & how we have become a highly trusted Camshaft manufacturer!
How to Recognise High Quality Cams?
Our Kelford Team member, the “Laser” is a high value piece of workshop equipment. A Production Technician engraves every cam with the Part Number, Quality Control number when the camshaft has been fully inspected by hand then finished with the trusted Kelford Cams logo.
A Spintron is a serious piece of R&D machinery to test a camshaft & valve train components and how they respond in an engine. A custom modified block is built, the Spintron then drives the valve train within this engine block. The data from this process is crucial for advanced manufacturing.
