CAD/CAM/CAE for the Parallel Indexing Cam Mechanisms
This paper takes the parallel indexing cam mechanism as research object and analyzes the formation of the profile of cam. On the basis of Visual C++6.0 object-oriented method, we have successfully developed the CAD/CAE/CAM system of parallel indexing cam mechanisms, which provides the parameter input dialogue frame with friendly interface. We can generate accurate profile data by using it, then create the three-dimensional model of the parallel indexing cam and assemble it with other parts under the Pro/E environment. At last, we don’t build virtual prototype until we transform the model into ADAMS through special interface Mechanism/Pro. Finally, this paper has researched the theory of contact and collision, carries out the motion simulation. We have received many valuable conclusions of practical application through all of the process.
