Cam Cover with Integrated Variable-Valve Timing

This is the first time that a plastic surface has been used for a cam variable-valve timing cover.  Holding a positional tolerance of 0.5 mm and required to pass 100% inspection, the application required development of a special workstation with laser and optical measurement tools to verify dimensional compliance.  High-flow 35%-glass-reinforced PA 6/6 was injection molded for this application and replaced machined die-cast aluminum while saving 2,200 g and 25% direct material costs.
