Ans. Cam is a rotating machine part designed to impart reciprocating or oscillating motion to

another part of machine. The part to which motion is given by cart is called followers.

Q 4. 1 (b) Enumerate various types of cams and draw a line diagram of each type

Ans. Two main types of cams are:

(1) Disc or radial cam It shown in fig 4.1, (2) Cylindrical cam It is shown in fig 4.2

Ans. (i) Reciprocating follower. Fig. 4.1 Fig. 4.2

(ii) Oscillating follower. Fig. 4.3

Ans. (i) Radial follower : The axis of follower intersects the axis of cam shaft. Fig. 4.1

(ii) Offset follower : The axis of follower does not intersect the axis of cam shaft. Fig. 4.4

Q. 4.1. (e) Classify followers depending upon the shape of the contacting end.

Ans. (1) Knife edge follower Fig. 4.1

(ii) Roller follower Fig. 4.5

(iii) Flat or mushroom follower Fig. 4.6

(iv) Spherical shaped follower Fig. 4.7

Ans. There is a rapid rate at which the knife-edge wears. Therefore roller follower is preferred to

knife-edged follower because there is almost no wear because in case of roller follower the

relative motion is rolling and not of sliding type

Q 4 1 (g) Define cam profile

Ans. The working contour of a cam which comes into contact with a follower to operate it is

called cam profile. For the cam shown in fig. 4.8, A-B-C-D-A is the cam profile.

Ans. Base circle : It is the smallest circle, drawn from the centre of rotation of a cam,

which forms the part of the cam profile.

Ans. Trace point: It is the reference point on the follower for the purpose of tracing the cam

profile. It is situated at centre of roller in roller follower and at knife-edge in case of knife-edge

follower.

Ans. Prime Circle: In case of roller follower the radius of prime circle is equal to the sum of the

base circle radius and the roller radius. In case of knife-edge follower and flat faced follower the

prime circle and base circle are identical.

Ans. Pitch curve : It is the curve traced by pitch point if we assume that the cam is stationary and

the follower is moving around the cam.

Ans. Pressure angIe: It is the angle between the line of motion of follower and the

normal to the pitch curve.

Ans. Pitch point: It is that point on the pitch curve at which the pressure angle is maximum.

Ans. Pitch circle : It is that circle which has centre at cam centre & passes through

pitch point.

Ans. Period of dwell : It is the period during which the follower remains stationary for some

finite rotation of cam.

Ans. Lift or stroke : The maximum travel of follower from the lowest position to the highest

position is called lift or stroke of the follower.

Q. 4.1. (q) What are the different types of motions with which a follower can move?

Ans. (I) Simple harmonic motion.

(ii) Uniform acceleration and uniform retardation motion.

(iii) Uniform velocity i.e. modified uniform velocity motion.

(iv) Cycloidal motion

(v) Any desired motion.

Ans. Cams are used in:

(ii) Automatic machine tools to give motion to the cutting tool.

(iii) Shoe making machines.

SECTIONB

Q. 4. 2. Derive expressions for displacement, velocity and acc. of follower moving with

SHM and draw these diagrams.

Q. 4.3. Derive expressions for displacement, velocity and acc. of follower which moves with

cycloidal motion and draw these diagrams.

Ans. Let S stroke of follower

= angle through which cam rotates for outstroke of follower.

w = angular speed of cam.

As motion is cycloidal, therefor radius and speed of rolling of an imaginary circle are:

The circle rolls through angle 13 when cam rotates through 0 and point A on circle moves to A.

Q. 4.4. Derive expressions for displacement, velocity and acc. of follower which moves first

with uniform aoc and then with uniform retardation Also draw the displacement, velocity

and acc the diagrams

Q. 4.5. A follower covers out stroke of 36 mm with S.H.M. in 600 rotation of cam. If the

cam speed is 240 rpm, find the max. velocity and max acc. of the follower.

Q. 4.6. A follower moves with uniform acc. and retardation in 60 cam rotation. The cam

speed is 300 rpm and follower stroke is 40 mm. Calculate the max vel. and max acc of

follower.

Q. 4.7 A follower covers stroke of 25 mm with cycloidal motion in 1200 cam rotation Cam

speed is 300 rpm Calculate the maxm velocity and the maxm acc of follower

Q. 4.9 A cam rotatitig clockwise is to give the roller follower of 20 mm diameter the

following motion

(z) Follower to moe outwards 30 mm during 1200 of cam rotation

(ii) Dwell for 60 of cam rotation.

(iii) Return to original position during 90 of cam rotation.

(iv) Dwell for 90 of cam rotation.

The minimumcam is 45 mm and line of stroke is off set 15 mm from the axis of cam. The

displacement of follower is to take place with S.H.M. in outward and return strokes. Draw

the cam profile.

Cam Profile:

Draw a vertical tangent to off-set cirde. This is the line of stroke of follower. It meets prime

circle at A.

Joint AO and take OB, OC, OD at 120, 60 and 90 respectively.

Divide AB and CD rn SIX parts at 1, 2, 5, 4 Draw tangents to off-set circle from these points.

Take I a equal to I a of displacement diag. and so on.

With a, h, c h, a, D as centre, drawn arcs of radius of roller of follower.

Draw a smooth curve touching the bations of these arcs. This curve represents the cam profile.

Q. 4.10. Draw a neat sketch of tangent cam with roller follower and derive relationship

among its main dimensions.

Ans.

EG and H J are straight flanks. They merge with circular nose at G and H, and with the base

circle at J and F.

The fig. 4.21 shows the follower in the lowest position. When the cam rotates through angle 0,

the line OC will become vertical and follower will get displaced through distance x,

Q 4.12 Write the expressions for maximum velocity and maximum acc, when the roller

follower is at straight flank

Ans From (i) and (ii) of previous question it is clear a that z and a increases with 0

When the cam has turned through angle (a. the roller centre is at M, the displacement is x of

roller is x.

Q. 4.14. In a tangent cam with roller follower, the base circle radius is 25 mm, roller dia 25

mm, angle of ascent 600, lift 12.5 mm, cam shaft speed is 100 rad/s. Determine

(i) The main dimensions of the cam

(ii) The yelloew c. of follower at the beginning of lift

flank of circular arc cam.

When the cam rotates through angle 9about 0, the contact will be at C and the x will be

the displacement of follower

Ans.

1. For displacement diagram, take AD = 1200, BC = 60 and CD = 1200 according to scale and

complete the diagram as fig. 4.25.

2. Draw a circle of minimum radius 1.75 cm as given

3. Let OA is line of stroke.
