The cam, used to translate rotary motion into linear motion, is an integral part of many classes of machines, such as printing presses, textile machinery, gear-cutting machines, and screw machines. Emphasizing computer-aided design and manufacturing techniques, as well as sophisticated numerical control methods, this handbook allows engineers and technicians to utilize cutting edge design tools. It will decrease time spent on the drawing board and increase productivity and machine accuracy.
* Cam design, manufacture, and dynamics of cams
* The latest computer-aided design and manufacturing techniques
* New cam mechanisms including robotic and prosthetic applications

Packed with hundreds of detailed illustrations!THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO CAM TECHNOLOGY! The transformation of a simple motion, such as rotation, into linear or other motion is accomplished by means of a cam -- two moving elements mounted on a fixed frame. Cam devices are versatile -- almost any specified motion can be obtained. If you work with industrial applications where precision is essential, the Cam Design Handbook is a key resource you’ll need handy at all times. You'll find thorough, detailed coverage of cams in industrial machinery, automotive optimization, and gadgets and inventions. Written with tremendous practical insight by engineering experts, the Cam Design Handbook gathers the information you need to understand cam manufacture and design. Comprehensive in scope and authoritative in nature, the book delivers a firm grasp of:
