Precision Camshafts Limited (PCL) today announced a strategic alliance with EMAG Germany, to acquire the widely proven and accepted Assembled Camshaft technology which uses the ‘Force Free Heat Shrink’ – a process which EMAG has patented. The improved cost competitive process developed through this alliance between PCL and EMAG Germany will be the first for any Indian component manufacturer.
PCL will have exclusive rights to this new technology worldwide. This PCL- EMAG alliance will further strengthen the market leadership of both entities in the coming years and will further help in developing next generation camshafts.
Assembled Camshafts are used predominately by OEM’s in Europe and now China and some developed countries, have increased strength of material and are lighter in comparison to conventional camshafts, both of which help in improving fuel efficiency and reducing emission.
Over the years, PCL has achieved success across the world, manufacturing over one million ‘Chilled Cast Iron’ camshafts per month. PCL has also recently introduced ‘Ductile Iron Induction Hardened’ camshafts to its stable of products and with the introduction of Assembled Camshafts, PCL will be the only camshaft manufacturer in India, thereby becoming a one-stop-solution for camshafts required by mid-size passenger cars globally – All Under One Roof.
