the constraint and control of follower motion are not maintained. This is a transient coefficient that occurs only with high speed. The shaft runs in a ball bearing. A graduated circular protractor is fitted co-axial with the shaft and a dial gauge can be fitted to note the follower displacement for the angle of cam rotation. The follower is properly guided in gun metal bushes. cam and the follower separate owing to excessively unbalanced forces exceeding the spring force during the period of negative acceleration. The machine is particularly very useful for testing the cam performance for jump phenomenon during operation. The unit is provided with the push rod in the two bush bearings. A spring is used to provide controlling force to the follower system. This is undesirable since the fundamental function of the cam follower system. This machine clearly shows the effect of change of forces on jump action of cam follower during operation. Jump phenomenon: The jump phenomenon occurs in case of cam operating under the action of compression spring load. Clearance and backlash are taken up : . (b) The supporting pillars should be properly tightened with the lock nuts provided. (c) Sharp edged cam with flat follower. jump or bounce out of contact with the cam. Also related are the short life of the cam flank surface. (b) An eccentric cam with flat follower. Jump and crossover shock: A cam follower retained against the cam with a compression retaining spring will under certain conditions. for any. highly flexible cam follower systems.Exp. This condition is most likely to occur with low values of damping and with high speed cams of quite flexible follower trains. (a) Circular arc cam with flat follower. Weights on the follower rod can be adjusted as per the requirements. It is used for testing various cam follower pairs. Crossover shock occurs in a positive drive cam mechanism when contact moves from one side of the cam to the other. reason while assembling following precautions should be taken: (a) The horizontality of the upper and lower glands should be checked by a spirit level. The arrangement of speed regulation is provided. With jump. No. high noise. i. At the free end of the cam shaft a cam can be easily mounted.e. vibrations and poor action. : Cam Analysis Date Aim : To draw the profile of the circular arc cam with flat face follower using the given apparatus.

To study the effect of follower assembly weight on the jump speed when the spring force is kept constant. Upward inertia force = Downward retaining force [W/g] ω2r = W + S This is the equilibrium of force equation when jump will just start. When jump occurs the follower pounds on the cam surface giving a good thumping sound. The effects can be reduced by preloading the system to remove backlash. must be redistributed. Probably a good first approximation could be obtained by concentrating a portion of the mass at the bottom of spring and treating the motion as a system of two degrees of freedom. Spring ko loses compression when jump begins and is carried motion with the mass. The resulting motion now gets rather complicated because the mass. then. If a smaller number of cycles exist during this period. he states. This figure can probably be reduced slightly for appreciable amounts of damping. Spring Ko loses its compression whenever X exceeds by the amount of Ko was initially compressed during assembly. ω = sqrt[ (g/r)(1 + (s/W) )] This relation shows that as the follower weight increases the jump speed goes on decreasing. It must be noted. Procedure : Rotate the cam shaft with the help of the hand through some angle and note down the angle of cam rotation indicated on the protractor and the corresponding follower displacement indicated in the dial gauge. The speed of cam rotation and stroboscope frequency of neon lamp are gradually and simultaneously increased and at the time of jump to occur the follower is seen to loose contact with cam. W = weight of follower assembly ω = angular velocity = [2πN] / 60 rad/sec S = spring force (kg) = stiffness of spring x compression length r = distance according to the geometry of cam = l / (2π) where l is lift of the follower.during the crossover and impact occurs. Continue the experiment for 65 . The jump speed thus can be obtained from the stroboscope. To observe the phenomenon of jump(use of a stroboscope is necessary). it is necessary to calculate the pre-compression of K. keep the initial spring compression at a certain level and observe jump speed for different follower weights by adding them successively and plot the graph of follower weights vs jump speed. This condition can be expressed by the equation : [Bl K] / 360 ≥ 2 where Bl is the angle through which the cam rotates during positive acceleration period. Crossover takes place on the rise or return motion when the acceleration changes sign and when the velocity is at its peak. the system should be investigated mathematically to determine if jump exists. Roth Bart states that jump will not occur in high speed systems if at least two full cycles of vibration occur during the positive acceleration time-interval of the motion. ω2 = [(W + S) / (Wr) ]g Therefore . Thus to set up a criteria for jump. by designing for low peak velocity and by using rigid follower train. through that the system will vibrate at a new frequency after jump begins and then analysis of the motion using the old frequency is not a true description of the motion. too.

velocity and acceleration diagrams of the flat face follower : Calculation: 66 .Displacement.

67 .

Profile of the circular arc cam : 68 .

The X vs θ plot can be used to find out velocity and acceleration of the follower system. r2 = mm mm Result: Thus the profile of the circular arc cam with flat face follower has been drawn. r1 = Nose radius .different angles of cam rotation and draw the graph X vs θ. 69 . The exact profile of the cam can be obtained by taking observations X vs θ. Observation : Base circle radius or minimum radius of the cam. where X = displacement of the follower from reference initial position and θ = angle of cam rotation with reference from axis of symmetry chosen.
