In order to determine the line profile parameters of the cylindrical cam it is necessary to choose the following data: T--cam rotation period, r--cam cylinder radius, LV = p--follower displacement amplitude and motion law for the follower.
The cylindrical cams model may be achieved by using adequate design software such as AutoCAD, Adams or SolidWorks.
