MECHANICAL CONTROLCAMSA cam is a specially designed and shaped piece of material that rotates,causing a lever or rod to move.
MECHANICAL CONTROLCAMS The THREE common type of cams :- Rotary cams Pear Snail Eccentric The cam-and-follower converts circular movement to a kind of oscillatory motion. It cannot work the other round.
MECHANICAL CONTROLCAMS- Pear shaped cam slide follower pear shaped cam The follower remains motionless for about half of the cycle of the cam and during the second half it rises and falls.
MECHANICAL CONTROLCAMS- Pear shaped cam DwellDwell is the periodwhen the followerdoes not move
MECHANICAL CONTROLCAMS- Snail shaped cam A snail drop cam is used where the drop or fall of the follower must be sudden. Disadvantage : Rotating in a clockwise direction would probably lead to the entire mechanism jamming.
MECHANICAL CONTROLCAMS- Eccentric cam An eccentric cam is a disc with its centre of rotation positioned ‘off centre’. This means as the cam rotates the flat follower rises and falls at a constant rate.
QUIZ A local toy shop has asked you to design a model to encourage parents to buy their young children mechanical toys. The partially made model is seen opposite. Add a suitable cam that controls two followers so that they rise and fall. As the swash cam rotates the Followers move up and down alternately. The swash cam operates like a ‘spinning top’. The followers move the arms of the model up and down as if it is waving.

QUIZ A thin sheet of wood usually breaks easily along its grain. However, if a few sheets of wood are glued together with their grains at 900 to one another, this will caused the completed structure to be stronger. The layers of ply with the grains at 900 to one another created an interlocking system that make it strong.
