Abstract

A cam is often assumed to be operated at a constant speed in designing a cam-follower system. And, to improve the motion characteristics is to do a new design by finding an appropriate cam-profile. From the kinematic point of view, this paper presents an alternative approach to improve the motion characteristics by varying the speed of the cam. Design criteria for selecting suitable cam speed trajectories are provided. Examples are given to illustrate the design procedure and also to show the feasibility.
