Interactive Cam Mechanism Design

A cam is a mechanism for transforming one motion type to another. It has a curved or grooved surface which mates with a follower and imparts motions to it. The motion of cam (usually rotation) is transformed into follower oscillation, translation, or a combination of both.

This software package is used to create cam profiles for translating and oscillating followers with a flat-face or with a roller. Subsequent web pages will allow for the input of cam parameters and the selection of output options. To begin please select the desired follower type (translating or oscillating) from the options above.
