Cam with leaf springs connected to transverse axis store energy when the toe leaf spring bends along the longitudinal axis.
Where [HL.sub.trsi] is the local angular momentum of segment v about its own transverse axis at the ith time percentile expressed in the external reference system; [I.sub.trs] is the moment of inertia of segment v about its transverse axis obtained from the e-Zone program (Deffeyes and Sanders, 2005) and [[omega].sub.si] is the angular velocity vector of segment s at the ith time percentile.
The transverse axis distributes products between lanes whilst the longitudinal axis synchronizes the product progression so that products are guided at the speed of the lower conveyor without bumping.
