Unformatted text preview: Equation for cam with flat face follower
Parametric equation for the cam
x = (C + f (θ ))cosθ − f ′(θ )sin θ
y = (C + f (θ ))sin θ + f ′(θ )cosθ Minimal radius
C + f (θ ) + f ′′(θ ) > 0 for all angles 0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π Length of follower’s face
L > max( f ′(θ ) ) Inertia force
FI = −maG
Moment arm length e= &
