Abstract

This paper presents a procedure for minimizing the size of roller-follower disc cam mechanisms under the constraint of maximum pressure angle. The pressure angle constraint is realized through establishing the permissible region for the cam centre. The problem of cam-size minimization is reduced to locate the cam centre at the intersection of boundary curves of the permissible region. Its implementation is illustrated through examples.
