Bimetal camshaft improves contact
What: Assembled steel fuel pump lobe combined with a cast iron camshaft for direct-injection engines
Innovation: Traditional cast iron camshaft lobes have imprecise contacts to operate fuel pumps for direct-injection engines. Mahle developed lobes of special steel that allow the traditional chilled cast iron camshaft to meet higher contact pressure loads in direct-injection engines.
