The cam-follower pair is a very complex lubricated contact because its continuous variation of load, speed and radius of curvature. Experimental verification are necessary but very difficult to perform. After a literature review of the existing test rigs for cam-follower simulation, the main aspects of a new versatile apparatus are presented. Several design variations are presented, each one with its advantages and drawbacks.

Abstract

The cam-follower pair is a very complex lubricated contact because its continuous variation of load, speed and radius of curvature. Experimental verification are necessary but very difficult to perform. After a literature review of the existing test rigs for cam-follower simulation, the main aspects of a new versatile apparatus are presented. Several design variations are presented, each one with its advantages and drawbacks. The final project will take into account some of the presented design solutions and the results of dynamic simulations of the rigs currently under elaboration.
