An object property driven cam design program for win32 and win64 operating systems.
CamTrax64 standard cam types include cylindrical cams, plate (aka disk) cams and linear cams. Choose the follower type that the design requires, including on center translating, off center translating and oscillating (swinging arm). Selecting different motion synthesis is a snap with CamTrax64. Choose between virtually any standard cam motion with a couple mouse clicks. With Excel the designer can analyze the cam motions and compare different motion synthesis. Don't have Excel? Output can also be to a text file! Charted are displacement, velocity, acceleration, pressure angle, cam shaft torque, radius of curvature, contact stress and normal force.
