Camshaft: commercial vehicle

Diesel reciprocating pumps are driven by a central camshaft. Here, a shaft with undercuts is produced by vertical warm forging, so that the highly loaded cams do not demonstrate any fiber exit. The part is then soft machined. Hirschvogel is also responsible for austempering the part as well as for the hard machining process which renders it ready for assembly.
