A tangent cam to drive a roller
follower through a total lift of 12.5 mm for a cam rotation of 75°. The cam
speed is 600 rpm . The distance between cam centre and follower centre at full
lift is 45 mm and the roller is 20 mm in diameter. Find the cam proportions and
plot displacement, velocity and acceleration for one full cycle

10.Draw the profile of a cam operating a roller reciprocating
follower and with the following data: Minimum radius of cam =25 mm; lift=30mm;
Roller diameter= 15mm. The cam lifts the follower for 120° with SHM, followed
by a dwell period of 30°. Then the follower lowers down during 150° of cam
rotation with uniform acceleration and retardation followed by a dwell period.

Draw the profile of a cam operating a
Knife-edged follower from the following data: (a) Follower to move outward
through 40 mm during 60° of a cam rotation; (b) Follower to dwell for the next
45° (c) Follower to return its original position during next 90° (d)Follower to
dwell for the rest of cam rotation. The displacement of the follower is to take
place with simple harmonic motion during both the outward and return strokes.
