A camshaft is a device used to convert circular or rotational motion into reciprocating or oscillatory motion.
The device features a shaft with discs fitted around it along its length called cams. Each cam is eccentric and isn’t a uniform circular disc, but rather has a bulge. This enables the bulge to press on to an object called a follower once during every complete rotation of the shaft about its axis
In internal combustion engines, the timing of the opening and closing of the fuel injection and gas exhaust valves is extremely important and must be synchronized with the corresponding motion of the piston to facilitate proper engine strokes. This is achieved by using the camshaft for opening and closing the valves at pre-set timings. The camshaft is connected to the crankshaft directly via gears or indirectly with a belt or chain and thus, rotates as the crankshaft rotates.
The Cam shaft is usually made of : Mainly cast iron
