Optimizing a cam mechanism using Adam and MATLAB

The design of a cam for high-speed production machines with various operating criteria imposes various conflicting objectives

ABSTRACT

The design of a cam for high-speed production machines with various operating criteria imposes various conflicting objectives that must be addressed to optimize the cam’s performance.

This technical case study explains the application of a two-step methodology using the MATLAB and Adam algorithms in the modeFRONTIER software platform.
The main objective of the optimization was to reduce the stress inside the cam mechanism, first by optimizing the profile and then considering effects such as shock, vibration and pressure.
