1. TITLE
Run out measurement process for conventional and FE Cam-shaft of ALCo locomotives.
2. INTRODUCTION/BACKGROUND
Cases of breakage of cam and split gears
and breakage of L9/R9 cam block in engine
block have been reported frequently. A lot
of measures were undertaken in the design
improvement of cam/split gears and L9/R9
cam blocks. Excessive run out of cam shaft
is considered to be playing some part in
these failures. Accordingly in 40th DMG,
the maximum value of TIR of cam shaft
was recommended 0.002( individual
segment) and 0.004 (in assembly
condition).
Since SUCS have nos of joints as it is assembled with 17 pieces ( 8 segment +7
spacers +2 Gen. end/Free end shafts) in one bank, it is therefore, not practicable to
achieve the run out of assembly to the extent of 0.002 thou. So SUCS has been kept
away from this exercise.
3. REFERENCE
Reported high rate of rejection of Cam-shafts by zonal railway
4. SCOPE
It will help in increasing the reliability and reducing rate of rejection for Conventional
and FE camshaft
5. TECHNICAL CONTENT
The cam-shaft should be of manufactured with concentric/same diameters at bearing
surface so that it during rotating no surface of the journal diameter should have a
metallic contact with bushing surface. In case of excessive run out, it will not only
damage to cam blocks but contact of split gear and cam gear shall shift beyond PCD
to either direction or leading to gear breakage. To avoid the said problem, run out of
camshaft should be controlled and maintained to prescribe limits.
(a) Devices required:i. Matched V-block/s. Or V blocks with rollers (DLW Drawing
No.MT.05AL0095) enclosed as Annexure I source are given in Annexure II.
ii. Dial Gauge
iii. Surface table ( EXCELLO make or similar with key way, Which could
accommodate full length of assembled camshaft)
(b) Method:i.

ii.

If V blocks with rollers are used, the rollers are inspected for the wear
otherwise it shall give erratic readings during TIR checking. In case of wear,
it should be replaced.
Surface table is trued with the help of sprit level.

iii.
iv.

The V-blocks are fitted in the sIot of the Ievelled surface table.
The cam-sbafts are assembled and each bearing journal is placed on a Y
block.
v. The dial-gauge 9tylus is made to touch on the bearing surface of cam-shaft. The cam-shaft is rotated about its artis wirh the stylus touching its bearing
surface.
(c) 0bsewation:-

i.

If the cam-shaft bearing surface is perfectly round then the pointer of the
dial of dial gauge will be stationary at every point on the periphery of journal
[mostly at 'O'(zero)].
i. If there is any discrepancy then there will dflection of dial-gauge pointer.
iii. This deflection of pointer for F'E and Conventional cam-shafts is
O.O02"(max. permissible)
iv. If deflwtion of pointer is more than the above permissible limits the camshaft/~/are zejected far fitment on loco.
v. The Values of TIR should be recorded in following table
