A cam is a rotating or a reciprocating element of a mechanism which imparts rotating, reciprocating or oscillating motion to another element called follower. Cam mechanisms are used in many modern machines, including weaving looms, precision measurement instruments, automatic machine tools, automobile engines, and so on. The geometry of the cam profile is based on the type of motion of the cam and the type of the follower. MATLAB is the tool to optimize the motion and geometry of the cam mechanism and to evaluate the kinematic performance. In this project a MATLAB code is written for designing of the cam profile for combination of motions, cycloidal, uniform velocity for radial cam with roller follower. MATLAB is used to get optimum values of displacement and velocity. A solid model of the cam is designed in Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0 and the Modal Analysis is done in ANSYS 13.0 Workbench to find out the natural frequencies at respective Mode shapes of the cam.
