A mechanism with a cam and a flat-faced follower is considered for distinct angular velocities. The dynamic analysis presents follower linkage displacement driven by a cam rotating at a uniform angular velocity. The system has clearances between the flat-faced follower and the guides and the effect of clearance is analyzed. The cam-follower linkage mechanism is simulated using Solidworks program taking into account the impact and the friction between the cam, flat-faced follower, and the guides. The non-linear analysis tools are employed for the movement of the flat-faced follower. An experimental set up is established to capture the motion of the follower. High-resolution optical marker is mounted on the follower stem to capture the follower motion in the y-direction. The simulation and experimental results are compared and verified for largest Lyapunov exponent.
