Analytix Cams 21
Available from Saltire Software, Inc
The flexibility of Analytix Cams 21 design and analysis software allows you to start your design process with follower requirements, or with an existing cam profile. You can focus on optimizing your cam and follower design rather than spending time on tedious manual calculations. By providing the tools to analyze critical aspects of a design before physical prototyping or production, Analytix Cams 21 increases the reliability and performance of your cam and follower designs.
During the design process, Analytix Cams 21 immediately provides
graphical and numerical analysis of critical data, such as cam profile, displacement, velocity, pressure angle, radius of curvature, acceleration and jerk. The software supports convenient data input from external sources through simple copy and paste commands or with a text file. You can also copy graphics from the main window and paste them into other applications for generating reports and presentations.
Analytix Cams 21 supports the following basic cam and follower types: Flat / Reciprocating Plate, Flat / Oscillating Plate, Roller / Reciprocating and Roller Oscillating Plate, Linear, and Barrel. Plate cams with roller followers may be either external or internal. With linear and barrel cams, either the top or bottom cam surface may be modeled.
Any cam profile developed in Ax Cams 21 can be used inside Analytix 21 to analyze the cam motion in combination with other parts of a larger mechanical system.
