Camshaft bearing alignment

Camshaft bearing alignment

Quick, accurate, and cost effective, the Solartron Miniature Flexures are frequently utilized in these types of bearing checks. It is small enough to be mounted to a bore gauge, and its double flexure design provides the required ruggedness.


In automotive engine plants, camshaft bearings must be precisely manufactured and aligned, so that an engine runs smoothly and production stays constant. The bearings themselves can be difficult to gauge, as passing any bore gauge through them can induce wear and tear on the gauge.  

Because they are quick, accurate, and cost effective, the Solartron Miniature Probeis frequently utilized in these types of bearing checks.  It is small enough to be mounted to a bore gauge, and its double flexure design provides the ruggedness for the repeated up and down from being threaded through the mounts.  Also, since the probes come pre-calibrated, they only need to be mounted and mastered before use, ensuring an easy setup on the factory floor.
