Strama-MPS has a strong working and successful business relationship with this company for almost 20 years. Especially for the sector camshafts Strama-MPS has been supplying high-end production plants for camshaft manufacturing for many years and for every new project their long time experience in Special Machine Tools and Plant Engineering as well as in Assembly and Testing Technology is a valuable addition.

From camshaft tube to ready assembled camshaft

As they say, „From tube to ready assembled camshaft“, Strama-MPS supplied various production equipment for ThyssenKrupp Presta Camshafts, amongst others, for the common-rail technology. The customer only has one contact person for the whole range of production facilities, minimizing interfaces and sources of error as well as the amount of time spent and costs. For their entire machinery and equipment ThyssenKrupp Presta Camshafts may call our 24/7-Service via Internet, all machines are provided with remote maintenance access enabling us to respond as quickly as possible to customer requests.

Bead calibration machine

Machine design

  • Forming machine that can form beads into a precision steel tube
  • Optional processes like cap press-fitting system, subsequent aligning of the camshaft tube (requirement 0.08mm)
  • In-line measuring device making possible the controlled correction of the forming process via data feedback

Cam machining center

Machine design

  • Maximum flexibility of component types
  • High-efficiency production machines (metal-cutting special machine tool) for machining of the cam bore by controlled 2 D internal boring
  • Measuring
  • Data feedback with full automatic tool path correction
  • Pressure broaching of a profile
  • Cleaning
  • Demagnetizing
  • Cycle time including full automatic parts loading and unloading for complete machining is < 2 seconds per cam depending on the type

Camshaft assembly machine

Machine design

  • Automatic feeding equipment for camshaft tube and as option all components to be mounted onto the camshaft
  • Full automatic assembly (joining) of the camshaft with complex process monitoring for joining forces, axial and radial positions
  • Aligning of the assembled camshaft with an accuracy of 0.08mm measured at several bearing points or characteristic positions
  • Measuring of the complete camshaft geometry with data feedback to the automatic camshaft assembly machine for full automatic positional correction
  • Laser marking of the camshaft with plain text and data matrix code
  • Optional preservation and packing
  • Traceability: Archiving of process parameters and quality data via control systems
