This paper is concerned with filling two gaps in the cam design field: (a) the absence of adequate measurements of the dynamic response of cam-follower systems, and (b) the need for the development of a predictive dynamic model for both normal and pathological system behavior. Part 1 presents the results of basic experiments on the dynamic response of a modern, high-speed cam-follower system. These data, which we believe to be the most comprehensive available in the open literature, and which are described more fully in [11], can be used by research investigators both in understanding system response and in developing and evaluating predictive dynamic models.
