Cams are used to provide the mechanical link needed to convert a rotational motion into a linear one. So, for example, a circular component would be used to move an object up and down smoothly, whereas if an object needed to be moved around smoothly and then suddenly dropped, you would choose a drop component.

Zinc-Plated Cams at Metrol

Choosing the suitable material and finish for your cams is essential. Many of our customers choose zinc-plated cams for a number of reasons, such as:

  • Cost-effectiveness. Zinc is often much cheaper than other materials, including gold.
  • Impressive durability. One of the most popular reasons for choosing zinc-plated cams is because of their high durability. Zinc is highly weather-resistant and can handle a lot when it comes to the elements, making it a great choice for exterior doors and windows.
  • Sustainability. Zinc is much more sustainable than other metals as it is able to be reused and recycled, unlike other options.
