The use of computers for engineering design, and in numerical control for manufacturing, has dramatically changed the cam design and manufacturing process. Additionally, cam design and manufacturing have been affected by a significant number of fundamental research results published in recent years. An invaluable resource, Cam Design and Manufacturing Handbook brings together up-to-date cam design technology, correct design and manufacturing procedures, and recent cam research results in one volume that is indispensable to the design and manufacturing of cam-follower systems. Beginning at an introductory level and progressing to more advanced topics, this comprehensive handbook provides all the information needed to properly design, model, analyze, specify, and manufacture cam-follower systems. The reader will find complete coverage of:
- Proper Cam Design Techniques
- Single- and Multi-Dwell Cams
- Classical Cam Functions
- Polynomial Cams
- Spline Functions for Cams
- Pressure Angle & Radius of Curvature
- Radial and Barrel Cams
- Translating & Oscillating Followers
- Roller & Flat-Faced Followers
- Forward & Inverse Dynamic Analyses
- Residual Vibrations
- Polydyne & Splinedyne Cams
- Cam Profile Definition
- Cutter Compensation
- Conjugate Cams
- Cam Materials & Manufacturing Techniques
- Stress Analysis of the Cam Follower Joint
- Lubrication of the Cam Follower Joint
- Measurement of Cam Follower Dynamics
- Extensive Bibliography of the Cam Literature
- Case Studies of Cam Designs
- Cam and Linkage Design Programs on CD-ROM
Additionally, this unique book is accompanied by a 90-day trial demonstration copy of the Professional Version of Dynacam for Windows V. 7.0. Written by the author and used worldwide, this program solves the equations described in the book and allows in its fully licensed version the design, dynamic modeling, analysis, and generation of follower center, cam surface, and cutter coordinate data for any cam. It also defines conjugate cams for any application.
Also included are 90-day trial demonstration copies of programs Fourbar, Sixbar, and Slider for the design of cam-follower linkages.
As a comprehensive resource, Cam Design and Manufacturing Handbook brings together up-to-date cam design technology, correct design and manufacturing procedures, and recent cam research results in one volume that is indispensable to the design and manufacturing of cam-follower systems. It begins at an introductory level and progresses to more advanced topics, while providing all the information needed to properly design, model, analyze, specify, and manufacture cam-follower systems.
About the Author:
Robert L Norton P.E. has over 40 years experience in the practice and teaching of mechanical engineering. He has undergraduate degrees in mechanical engineering and industrial technology from Northeastern University in Boston, and a M. S. in engineering design from Tufts University in Medford, MA. Having first encountered and designed cams for camera mechanisms in 1960 at Polaroid Corporation, Norton has spent many years designing and analyzing cam-follower systems at Polaroid, Gillette, and many other companies through his consulting practice. He has taught kinematics, dynamics, stress analysis, and machine design to mechanical engineering students for more than 30 years at Northeastern, Tufts, and at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, MA., where he is currently Professor of Mechanical Engineering and head of the design program in the Mechanical Engineering Department. Additionally, Norton has published many technical papers in the literature and holds! 13 U.S. patents. He is a member of SAE and a Fellow of the ASME.
