Camshaft Adjuster

The customer's requirement was an actuator for a camshaft switching system. It should be possible to optimise the cylinder intervals by adjusting the camshaft so that the engine works as efficiently and with as little fuel as possible. In a worst-case scenario, a failure can damage the camshaft.

MSG developed an actuator that is attached to the cylinder head cover and uses a retractable pin to move a cam piece in a phase-controlled manner. The resettings takes place via the cam piece. The function of the actuator is controlled by the engine control unit.

MSG aims to find an individualised solution for every customer and every challenge, regardless of whether we work with general or very specific specifications. We develop the best technology for the job, build prototypes and improve them together with our customers until they are perfect.
