Abstract

The main purpose of this work is to present a complete kinematic analysis of the roller motion in translating cam-follower mechanisms with translating roller followers. The main kinematic variables of the roller are the angular velocity and angular acceleration. These quantities are deduced in a general form, in such a way they can be easily used for different cam laws. Furthermore,the influence of the functioning cam-follower parameters can also be included. Finally,an example of application is offered to analyze and discuss the main procedures considered in this work.
