In (Flores, 2013) a computational methodology for the optimized design of disccam mechanisms with eccentric translating roller followers is presented; the objective function takes into account: the cam base circle radius, the roller radius, and the follower offset.
A computational approach for cam size optimization of disc cam-follower mechanisms with translating roller followers.
