Design of Trochoid Cams
Trochoid Cams are shapes that are very useful for compressor pumps and Internal Combustion Wankel Engine forms. They can be easily generated in MechDesigner.
Take a look and 'read more' to see how they are constructed...
Of course, once you have designed the Trochoid Shapes as Cams, the Cam Coordinates can be exported - you can export any number of cam coordinate points - from 100 to 100,000 points.
Mechanism View of Trochoid
The mechanism view ( planar kinematics ) shows the two parts that are needed to create the Trochoid path. The Function blocks ( green elements), shown underneath, control gearing relationships required to generate the path and cam profile.Read more >>>
Three and Four Lobe Trochoid Cam Profiles
MechDesigner Model shows a 3D animation of two Trochoids. The left hand one uses a gear ratio of -4/3 between the first and second link. The right hand one has a gear ratio of -3/2.Read more >>>
