In this article, disc cams with translating followers are studied and the speed fluctuation of the input shaft is minimized with respect to eccentricity. First, the equations of motion for the cam mechanisms with roller follower and flat-faced follower are determined. Then, by solving these equations for steady-state motion, the coefficient of speed fluctuation is calculated. The optimum eccentricity that would minimize the coefficient of speed fluctuation is determined.
