CAMS

Cam is a mechanical device used to transmit

motion to a follower by direct contact.

CAMS

Cam is driver; Follower is driven.

In a cam - follower pair, the cam normally rotates
while the follower may translate or oscillate.

CLASSIFICATION OF CAMS
(a) Disk (plate) cams
According to the physical shape, cams could be
classified into:

(b) Cylindrical cams
(c) Translating cams

(a) Knife edge follower

(b) Roller follower

(c) Flat faced follower

(d) Spherical follower

CLASSIFICATION OF FOLLOWES
i. Based on surface in contact

a) Oscillating follower

b) Translating follower
ii. Based on surface in contact

iii. Based on line of action
(b) Off-set follower

(1) Draw the cam profile for following conditions:
Follower type = Knife edged, in-line; lift = 50mm; base
circle radius = 50mm; out stroke with SHM, for 60

cam rotation; dwell for the remaining
period. Determine max. velocity and acceleration during
out stroke and return stroke if the cam rotates at 1000
rpm in clockwise direction.
