Cam Analysis Apparatus

We are one of the leading manufacturers, suppliers and exporters of Cam Analysis Apparatus. The offered apparatus is motorized, comprising of a camshaft driven by a variable speed motor. Available with us at highly reasonable market prices, this apparatus is commonly used for plotting the follower displacement vs. angle of rotation curves.
Product Name: Cam Analysis Apparatus

Product Code: PMAG-0001

Apparatus is a motorized unit consisting of a camshaft driven by a variable speed motor. The shaft runs in a double bearing. The free end of the camshaft has a facility to mount the cam easily.The follower is properly guided in gunmetal bushes and the type of follower can be changed according to the cam under test. Graduated circular protractor is fitted co-axial with the shaft. And a Dial Gauge fitted on the follower shaft is used to note the follower displacement for the angle of cam rotation. A spring is used to provide controlling force to the follower system. Weights on the follower shaft can be adjusted as per the requirement. An arrangement is provided to regulate the speed. The apparatus is very useful- for testing the cam performance for jump phenomenon during operation. On this apparatus the effect of change of inertia forces on jump action of earn-follower during operation can be observed. It is useful for testing various cam & follower pairs. Three cams and three followers will be supplied with the apparatus. Theses are already hardened to reduce the wear. The temperature of bath can be maintained from ambient to 90 C with the help of Digital Temperature indicator Cum Controller. Samples can be taken out with the help of a sampling pipette.

  • With the help of combination of provided cams and followers following experiments can be conducted:
  • To plot the n-Q (Follower displacement Vs Angle of rotation) curves for different cam follower pairs
  • The follower bounce can be observed by using a stroboscope (Optional) & effect of follower weight on bounce can be studied.
  • To study the effect of follower weight on bounce
  • To study the effect of spring compression on bounce
  • The tests can be repeated by changing compression springs, follower weights and cam speed.
