Analytical Method for Synthesis of Cam Mechanism
Pages : 432-435
Analytical method of the geometrical and kinematic synthesis used for the exact design of the profile of the Cam mechanism for desired movement program of slider-follower is presented. This method uses continues trajectory conditions in the points where path, velocity or acceleration starts-ends the changes. Usually the diagram of acceleration and maximal displacement of the slider are given or known. Based on desired or given conditions in this paper is described design of exact profile of the Cam mechanism. The method of continues trajectory, usually converts the problem of cam design in problem of solving the system of equations of unknown coefficients. For the simulations results we have use MathCad software.
