## THE CAM DESIGN FOR A BETTER EFFICIENCY

Abstract: The paper presents an original method to determine the efficiency of a mechanism with cam
and follower. The originality of this method consists in eliminate of the friction modulus. In this paper on
analyze three types of cam mechanisms: 1.The mechanism with rotary cam and plate translated follower;
2.The mechanism with rotary cam and translated follower with roll; 3.The mechanism with rotary cam
and rocking-follower with roll. In every kind of cam and follower mechanism on utilize a different method
for the best efficiency design.
Key Words: efficiency, power, cam, follower, roll, force, speed.
1. INTRODUCTION
In this paper the authors present an original method
to calculate the efficiency of the cam mechanisms.
The originality consists in the eliminating of friction
forces and friction coefficients. On determine just the
mechanical efficiency of cam mechanism.
In every kind of cam and follower mechanism on are
utilizing a different method for the design with maximal
efficiency.
In this paper on analyze three kinds of cam and
follower mechanisms.
2. DETERMINING THE MOMENTARY
MECHANICAL EFFICIENCY OF THE ROTARY
CAM AND PLATE TRANSLATED FOLLOWER
The consumed motor force, Fc, perpendicular in A on
the vector rA, is dividing in two components, :
1. Fm, which represents the useful force, or the motor
force reduced to the follower;
2. F, which is the sliding force between the two
profiles of cam and follower, (see the picture 1).
Pc is the consumed power and Pu represents the useful
power.
The written relations are the next:
Fm = Fc sin
(2.1)

v2 = v1 sin

(2.2)

Pu = Fm v 2 = Fc v1 sin 2

useful force).

## In figure number three, on can see the forces and the

speeds of the mechanism with rotary cam and rocking
follower with roll.
The cam and the follower are represented in two
positions, successively.
The distance between the two rotary centers is noted
by d. The radius of follower is b.
The movement laws are known: , , , .

## On can write the next forces and speeds (see the

36 DECEMBER 2006 VOLUME 1 NUMBER 2 JIDEG

## The follower with roll, make input-force, to be

divided in more components. This is the motive for that,
the dynamic and the precisely-kinematics of mechanism
with rotary cam and follower with roll, are more different
and difficult.
