Example of Planar Guidance for Carton Erector
Some mechanisms are very useful in packing machine simply because they move parts along a useful path. We want to guide a pack along a path that avoids hitting packs that have already been erected in the previous cycle. The pack must not hit the gripping tool. The pack must be rotated by 90 degrees and move along a path that avoids other objects. This is known as a problem of planar guidance.
Example of Conjugate Cam Design for Carton Erector
Cam designs often use conjugate cams for improved performance
While MechDesigner software is particularly suited to Packaging Machine design, it can also be used to design Camshafts for engines. We would normally recommend that you use specialist software for the design of engine camshaft because there are special requirements for valve timing cams. Nevertheless, if you can specify your motion using our motion design software, then why not.
