IMPCO has created a scalable machine portfolio for larger crankshaft and camshaft finishing processes.
The Heavy Duty range of machines has its own product range within the Worldstar family range of machines. The Worldstar 1240HD range is based on a flexible machine architecture with additional features selectable as required. On a crankshaft, we are able to positively influence the reduction of chatter on bearing diameters, improve residual strength within components through radii finishing. Additional to this we have a solution for improving the bearing thrust walls on bearings diameters. All of this is achieved with our robust machine design and flexible architecture, to fit your product size.
Critical to this business sector is friction reduction, this we achieve by multi-level finishing, careful media selection and tooling design optimization.
