COMP Cams® Micro Surface Enhancement™ Camshaft Upgrade

Memphis, TN –Micro Surface Enhancement™, standard on all GM LS camshafts, is now being offered as an upgrade option on any COMP Cams® custom grind roller camshaft.

Micro Surface Enhancement™ is not just an aesthetic finishing process. It is a finishing technology that increases strength and performance above and beyond standard finishing. It improves the traditional camshaft lobe and bearing journal through a 65-percent reduction in surface peak roughness and provides a 250-percent improvement in the effective load bearing area. Spreading the contact area between the roller and cam face allows for much higher loads and lower localized stress.

Additionally, MSE utilizes uniform pressure across the camshaft lobe face that reduces the surface waviness common with other finishing techniques, such as belt polishing. The resulting camshaft surface more evenly distributes load for increased durability. MSE also removes the sharp edges and microscopic machining marks that normally result from the grinding process.
