GL 112: Cam Analysis Apparatus

Cam Analysis Apparatus

Cam Analysis Apparatus

Product Details

Technical Description 
The GL 112 allows the dynamic investigation of cam mechanisms, as used in motors for actuation of the valves. The cam mechanism consists of 4 interchangeable cam plates and 2 different tracers. A mass and a spring are used to simulate the valve. In order to demonstrate the so-called "valve wobble", the spring rate, mass and speed are adjustable within broad limits. A plotter allows the actual lift curves to be recorded. The open design allows the observation of every detail of the movement process. A stroboscope (not supplied) can be used to provide a particularly impressive view of the movement process and lift. The unit is intended for demonstration purposes in technical education. It is not suitable for use as a test stand for fatigue testing.  
Learning Objectives / Experiments

- Comparison of different cam forms
- Lift curves for non-matching tracer
- Lift curve for skipping tracer
- Determination of limit speed and comparison with

* Influence of spring rigidity and moving mass1
* Plotting of lift curves1
* Excellent observation of movement process
