Cam Design
5.1

The reciprocating radial roller follower of a plate cam is to rise 50 mm with simple
harmonic motion in 180D of cam rotation and return with simple harmonic motion in the
remaining 180 . If the roller radius is 10 mm and the prime-circle radius is 50 mm,
construct the displacement diagram, the pitch curve, and the cam profile for clockwise
cam rotation.

5.2

A plate cam with a reciprocating flat-face follower has the same motion as in Problem
5.1. The prime-circle radius is 50 mm, and the cam rotates counterclockwise. Construct
the displacement diagram and the cam profile, offsetting the follower stem by 20 mm in
the direction that reduces the bending stress in the follower during rise.

70

5.3

Construct the displacement diagram and the cam profile for a plate cam with an
oscillating radial flat-face follower that rises through 30 with cycloidal motion in 150
of counterclockwise cam rotation, then dwells for 30D , returns with cycloidal motion in
120 , and dwells for 60 . Determine the necessary length for the follower face,
allowing 5 mm clearance at each end. The prime-circle radius is 30 mm, and the
follower pivot is 120 mm to the right.

Notice that, with the prime circle radius given, the cam is undercut and the follower will
not reach positions 7 and 8. The follower face length shown is 200 mm but can be made
as short as 195 mm (position 9)from the follower pivot.
Ans.

5.4

A plate cam with an oscillating roller follower is to produce the same motion as in
Problem 5.3. The prime-circle radius is 60 mm, the roller radius is 10 mm, the length of
the follower is 100 mm, and it is pivoted at 125 mm to the left of the cam rotation axis.
The cam rotation is clockwise. Determine the maximum pressure angle.

For a full-rise cycloidal motion, determine the values of for which the acceleration is
maximum and minimum. What is the formula for the acceleration at these points? Find
the equations for the velocity and the jerk at the midpoint of the motion.
Using Eqs. (5.19), we know that acceleration is an extremum when jerk is zero. This

Ans.

A plate cam with a reciprocating follower is to rotate clockwise at 400 rev/min. The
follower is to dwell for 60 of cam rotation, after which it is to rise to a lift of 62.5 mm.
During 25 mm of its return stroke, it must have a constant velocity of 1000 mm/s.
Recommend standard cam motions from Sec. 5.7 to be used for high speed operation and
determine the corresponding lifts and cam rotation angles for each segment of the cam.
The curves shown are initially only
sketches and not drawn to scale.
They suggest the standard curve
types which might be chosen. The
actual choices are shown in the
table below.

## ( 400 rev/min )( 2 rad/rev )

( 60 s/min )

To match the given velocity
condition in Seg. DE we must have
y 4 = y4
1000 mm/s = y4 ( 41.888 rad/s )

y4 = L4 4 = 23.87 mm/rad
( 25 mm ) 4 = 23.87 mm/rad

## 2 L5 5 = y4 = 0.954 930 in/rad

4 = 1.047339 rad = 60
Matching the first derivatives at D
and E we find
L5 = 11.9366 5
(1)

73

L3 = 15.1981 3

(2)

## Matching the second derivatives at C we find

131.707 ( 62.5 ) 22 = 2 L3 4 32

22 = 133.447632 L3

(3)

## For geometric continuity, we have

L1 + L2 = L3 + L4 + L5 or
L3 + L5 = 37.5 mm
(4)
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = 2 or
2 + 3 + 5 = 4.188 790 rad

Equations (1) to (5) are now solved simultaneously for 2 , L3 , 3 , L5 , and 5 . The

A plate cam with an oscillating follower is to rise through 20 in 60D of cam rotation,
dwell for 45 , then rise through an additional 20 , return, and dwell for 60 of cam
rotation. Assuming high-speed operation, recommend standard cam motions from
Section 5.7 to be used, and determine the lifts and cam-rotation angles for each segment
of the cam.
From the sketches shown (not drawn to scale), the

The boundary conditions for a polynomial cam motion are as follows: for = 0 , y = 0 ,
and y = 0 ; for = , y = L, and y = 0 . Determine the appropriate displacement
equation and the first three derivatives of this equation with respect to the cam rotation
angle. Sketch the corresponding diagrams.

Determine the maximum pressure angle and the minimum radius of curvature for the cam
of Problem 5.1.
Referring to Problem 5.1 for the data and figure,
L = 50 mm
R0 = 50 mm
Rr = 10 mm
For simple harmonic motion, Eq. (5.18) can be substituted into Eq. (5.43) to give
sin

tan =

= 70.53 at which max = 19.47 . However, it is much simpler to use the nomogram of
Fig. 5.28 we find max = 20 directly. For the accuracy needed, the nomogram is
considered sufficient.
Ans.
From Fig. 5.30a, using R0 L = 1.0 , we get ( min + Rr ) R0 = 1.43 .
This gives

## min = 1.43R0 Rr = 1.43 ( 50 mm ) (10 mm ) = 61.5 mm

A radial reciprocating roller follower is to have the motion described in Problem 5.7.
Using a prime-circle radius of 500 mm, determine the maximum pressure angle and the
maximum roller radius that can be used without producing undercutting.
We will use the nomogram of Fig. 5.28 to find the maximum pressure angle in each
segment of the cam. Calculations are shown in the following table. Asterisks are used to
signify values used with the nomogram to adjust half-return curves to equivalent full
return curves, and to adjust baseline.

half-cycloidal cam segments. Note also that segment EA need not be checked since

Equations (5.36) and (5.37) describe the profile of a plate cam with a reciprocating flatface follower. If such a cam is to be cut on a milling machine with cutter radius Rc ,
determine similar equations for the center of the cutter.

## In complex polar notation, using

Eq. (5.32) and using u and v to
denote the local rectangular part
coordinates of the cam shape, the
loop closure equation is
ue j + jve j = jR0 + jy + y + jRc

Dividing this by e j
u + jv = j ( R0 + Rc + y ) e j + ye j

## Now separating this into real and

imaginary parts we find
u = ( R0 + Rc + y ) sin + y cos
v = ( R0 + Rc + y ) cos y sin Ans.
