Cylinder head

Better camshaft and valve train performance

Achieving and maintaining proper valve train operation involves the interplay of several cylinder head components. Valve train configuration can vary, but the essential task is the same opening and closing the valves at the time required for proper engine operation.

Camshafts, synchronized to the crankshaft by a chain, belt or gear, ultimately control this operation. SKF can help ensure that valve train components operate not only as they should, but with less friction, noise and vibration. SKF bearing solutions canalso enable higher operating speeds, greater load carrying capacity and longer service life.
