Leading Cam Design and Analysis Software.

MechDesigner is the leading Cam Design & Analysis software, with powerful capabilities. You can design and analyze all rotary and linear cam types including:

  • Barrel Cams
  • Globoidal Cams
  • Conjugates Cams
  • Cylindrical Cams
  • Plate Cams
  • Groove or Track Cams
  • Slot Cams and Ramp Cams

In fact, you can add the Cam to any machine part, and the Cam Follower to any other Machine-Part, no matter how many parts are in your mechanism.

Cam Design Analysis is seamlessly integrated with all the design tools you need to model your packaging, textile, or assembly machine. MechDesigner analyzes and calculates automatically all cam analysis parameters such as

  • Pressure Angle
  • Radius-of-Curvature
  • Contact Force
  • Contact Stress
  • Sliding/Entrainment Velocity.

You can plot these for a complete machine cycle with graphs, of course, but the power of MechDesigner is that these variables immediately update as you edit any other design parameter in your machine and mechanism design[link] or your motion design[link].

You can also:

  • Select from a Database of 1000+ Cam Follower Bearings, Calculate Cam-Follower Bearing Life
  • Select from 14 Categories of Steels, Heat-treatment, and enter its Hardness to calculate the Cam Life

These values also immediately update as you edit any parameter in the model.

Equally important, is that you can design any number of cams in one machine model. This allows you to analyze and watch the interactions of the machine tooling, or end-effectors, as you edit any of the design parameters. You can make sure the machine can still do what you need while you also design and analyze the cams.

MechDesigner is the perfect tool to design Packaging, Textile, and Assembly Machines, where there are many cam mechanisms, with complex motion designs and interacting tooling.

MechDesigner is the leading software for cam design, analysis, and finally, exporting your Cam-Coordinates. You can try it free today, for 14 days.

Mechanism Design Software

Mechanism Design Software must be able to design mechanisms as well as Cam Design and Motion Design. You can design any mechanism, which may include only parts and joints, but you can easily add servos, cams, gears [simple gears, racks, bevels], belts with pulleys, all with complex motions. There might be one input or many. The mechanism design can be planar or spatial. You can design all of the mechanisms in a machine at the same time so that you can see all of the important mechanism interactions. You can even add the packaging to the model and design it as a mechanism.

MotionDesigner: Motion Design for Machines and Mechanisms

Motion Design is integrated with MechDesigner as a standalone tool - which we call it MotionDeisgner. MotionDesigner is a powerful motion design editor. You can edit and simultaneously update the motions to the mechanism design and cam design in your MechDesigner model - on-the-fly. In this way, you can scrutinize your motion design as a graph in MotionDesigner, and simultaneously scrutinize the same motion moving in your MechDesigner model of your machine.

Kinematics Analysis and Simulation Software

Kinematic Analysis and Simulation is a key strength of MechDesigner Software. You can design, any mechanism using Inverse-Kinematics or Forward-Kinematics. MechDesigner has fast, closed-form algorithms, you will be amazed at how quickly you can innovate and watch a simulation cycling at machine-like speeds. Start your free 30-day trial today.
