Foundry technology is one of the most challenging field of manufacturing industry which involves metal forming, foundry practice, fabrication and welding processes. As result of developing newly foundry units in west Africa nations technological development of an indigenous industry alongside bank of industry in Nigeria needs coordination, self reliance ,share holders and acceptance of locally produced camshaft components in the market by standardization. Some of this industry have less skilled workers with lack of practical knowledge about machine assembly, handling and fixtures with lack of theoretical background. While some industries lack mechatronic training and experts, instrumentation ,control engineers and technologist to design camshaft from the prophase wireframe modeling to the final phase of solid modeling with a photorealistic effect. The essence of shot peening on camshaft in this research is to detect and minimize unforeseen material thermal shocks, internal vibration, fissures, precision modeling of masses recystallization point and design error without tolerance in design content in Nigeria indigenous product. It is advisable industries managers should purchase and mentor the staff on how to use software for computer aided engineering and graphics. Other areas are the prevention of failure in moving mechanical component due to induced contacts forces, stresses, corrosion cracking and molecular masss transfer, stress intensity factor determination, air porosity and creep within the camshaft surface at the casting stage locally from feasibility studies to a completion stage using international standard using computer aided engineering software to boast more aesthetic appearance of finished products for importing more with less than exportation target simply comparative advantage. This research enhances a better understanding of the principle of casting of camshaft, optimizing human centric skill on shot peening on a blue print and the use of computer aided engineering to revive locally designed product due to biomechanics condition due to a technological innovation and transfer for a continuous flow cycle demand utilization between local craftsmen and engineers.
