High-speed production machines often have one or more cam-driven motion systems. And when those cams wear prematurely, downtime and maintenance costs can spiral out of control. Particularly when it comes to replacing cams or dealing with rejections from contamination. In this white paper, using an example from a fast-moving can making machine, we show how you to eliminate cam wear entirely by rethinking the design of cam-driven actuators and cam followers using polymer components and incorporating recent advancements in engineering. We were expecting 3 areas of savings, in this paper we outline the seven areas of savings the customer achieved.
