Gaziantep University 2 Introduction to Cam Mechanisms A CAM changes the input motion, which is usually rotary motion (a rotating motion), to a reciprocating motion of the follower. They are found in many machines. A CAM has two parts, the FOLLOWER and the CAM PROFILE. http://www.technologystudent.com/cams/cam1.htm
Gaziantep University 3 Introduction to Cam Mechanisms ONE CYCLEOne rotation/revolution of the cam. DWELLWhen the cam rotates but the follower does not rise or fall. THE RISEThat part of the cam that causes the follower to rise. THE RETURNThat part of the cam that causes the follower to fall. http://www.technologystudent.com/cams/cam1.htm

Gaziantep University 18 Motion Profiles 5- Trapezoidal Acceleration Motion Parabolik eğriye göre titreşimi ve gürültüsü daha az, aşınma ve şok etkisi daha uygun Üçünü derece hareket veya sikloidal harekete göre daha küçük kam ebatları ve daha düşük ivme değerleri elde edilir. Bağlama açısı, aynı taban dairesi için üçüncü derece hareket eğrisine nazaran daha iyidir.

Gaziantep University 23 Eccentric Cam Mechanisms An eccentric cam is a disc with its centre of rotation positioned ‘off centre’. This means as the cam rotates the flat follower rises and falls at a constant rate. This type of cam is the easiest to make and yet it is one of the most useful. http://www.technologystudent.com/cams/cam10.htm The diagrams (1 to 7) seen below show the cam rotating in an counterclockwise direction. As it rotates it pushes the flat follower upwards and then allows it to drop downwards. The movement is smooth and at a constant speed.
