Over more than 40 years Crow Cams have developed unique camshaft grinding, inspection and finishing facilities using CNC technology to ensure the ultimate in product consistency and accuracy.
Every Crow Cam is ground using the highest quality cast iron or steel cam billets sourced from the leading suppliers in the USA and Europe. Prior to grinding every billet is straightened to correct any distortion that normally occurs in the heat treatment process.
Crow Cams is one of the few cam companies in the world who have in-house capability for cam lobe design and production. It is not well known that most cam companies simply copy existing profiles from companies like us who design their own profiles.
Crow Cams are ground on unique CNC controlled camshaft grinding machines developed in-house by our engineering staff. These machines computer control grinding speeds and feed rates to achieve exceptional accuracy and surface finish of the cam lobes.
Every cam is inspected in CNC controlled inspection equipment that checks every lobe for such critical element as lobe taper and base circle run out. Master cams are checked using the world’s most accurate cam inspection machine – the Adcole. We are the only Australian cam grinder to have such a machine in-house.
Camshaft surface finish is critical to long term durability and every cast iron cam goes through a phosphate and CNC buffing process. All steel roller cams are finished using a CNC lapping machine to produce a very fine cross hatch finish to ensure perfect roller lifter tracking.
Full cam specifications are supplied with every Crow Cams product, which are packed securely to arrive in perfect condition worldwide.
The same facilities and attention to detail that are applied to record setting race cams, for competitors such as 6-time Doorslammer champion John Zappia, are used on the Crow Cam you will receive for your road or race combination.
