Caterpillar-Lafayette 3500C Cam Shaft Methodology
- Jointly developed a fully parametric methodology to generate families of cam shafts.
- New methodology ties the tabular lobe data to the model and drawing.
- High accuracy to accommodate analysis, simulations and manufacturing.
- Achieved a 95% reduction of the effort necessary to create subsequent cam shafts.
- Created 40 new camshafts using the template developed
- Saved over 7,000 productive hours
