## Cam and Follower: Definition, Types, Working Principle, and Applications [PDF]

Optimization of Cam Mechanisms pp Cite as. In this chapter, we discuss the kinematic analysis of cam mechanisms. That is, we determine the follower motion, given a cam profile described by the Cartesian coordinates of a discrete set of its points, its follower type, and all the parameters involved. This is, indeed, the case if the cam profile was synthesized using the methods described in Chapters 4 and 5. If, on the other hand, the cam profile is available as an engineering blueprint, as a photograph or, even as a plate, then a database of point Cartesian coordinates can be constructed by suitably digitizing the given profile. However, the digitization of profile points yields only Cartesian coordinates but not their derivatives, which we can calculate by using a spline approximation of the cam profile, as outlined in Chapter 8. Once more, the basic approach for analysis will be computer-oriented rather than graphical.

In mechanical engineering, engineers often use a higher pair links mechanism that is renowned as Cam and Follower Mechanism. This pair of higher links are used to move links spontaneously or periodically. Although, cam and follower mechanisms are also used by engineers for ensuring zero or minimum degree of error. The device that is known as Cam in the 3rd century was devised by Hellenistic water-driven automata. Alongside, that device was found in the 4th century in Al-jazari design.

It is used to decrease the degree of error. In the third century, the device known as the cam was produced by Hellenistic water-powered automata. In addition, the device was found in al-Jazari design in the 4th century. Also, the mechanism is often used by engineers as a part of the I.
