The dynamic response of the cam-driven mechanism is investigated for a variety of cam motion profiles. Based on a linear, lumped system model of single degree of freedom, the results of the response characteristics of the follower are presented in the form of nondimensional primary and residual shock response spectra. These spectra are also recasted in four-coordinate log-log grid forms. The extension of this approach to treat the system model of two degrees of freedom is delineated. Furthermore, the analysis of a two-freedom model of the cam-driven system was also undertaken to clarify the effects of many system parameters and for obtaining an optimal design. Fundamental design charts are presented.
