Flame Hardening

  • CWC has been flame hardening camshafts for many years. We make approximately 5 million flame-hardened camshafts annually and have never had a failure in the field.
  • As the single-source camshaft supplier to Toyota North America, we understand the importance of quality in our flame-hardening process.

Austempering/Selectively Tempered Ductile Iron (SADI)

  • CWC's selective tempered ductile iron (SADI) process exhibits the strength, ductility and wear-resistance for applications up to 255 KSI HERTZ. This CWC innovation allows us to offer our customers camshafts that can withstand higher engine stress and a significant cost savings when compare to steel or assembled camshafts.
