JB Tool, Die & Engineering, Inc. engineering department worked with a client from the high speed manufacturing industry to design cams for their equipment. Using the customer supplied part, we began the fabrication process with reverse engineering to produce a 2d drawing, CNC machining the 8620 steel to a thickness of 1 ½”, and then grinding the cams to the specific requirements. For this client we produced radial or plate cams and axial cams (face and cylindrical or barrel). On this fabrication project, we worked to tolerances as tight as ±.001″.
