Precision Point Design of a Cam Indexing Mechanism
This work regards on the design of a cylindrical cam indexing mechanism with a motion law that passes through a positional precision point. A numerical algorithm is proposed to solve this problem and, particularly, a genetic algorithm. The algorithm and the encoding of the problem are described.
