Cylinder head


Task

  • Machining the cam shaft bore and the valve seat is a core
    task in cylinder head manufacturing
  • Dimensional repeatability in geometry, alignment and
    surface quality
  • Different material strengths or offsets at the start of
    each partial bore

Solution

  • Tool concepts from the KOMET GROUP
 

Valve seat

  • Pre- and finish machining
  • Valve guide reamers with multiple
    cutting edges for higher feed rates
    and longer tool life
  • Reduced insert cost due to 9
    cutting edges on 1 insert

Cam shaft bore

  • Pilot and finish machining
    with multi-insert tools
  • Patented replaceable head
    system reduces setup time
    and tool cost
  • Selection of special cutting
    lead geometries according to
    machining requirements
