Short overview.

Start Page:
The program is able to work in both mm and inches.
iIt uses Splines to generate the Valve lift curve, with this approach it is fairly easy to copy any
measured Cam lift curve and then modify it or make new Cam design from scratch.

Splines aren’t as limited as the more common Polynomial curve approach and with Splines it’s easy to
design an asymmetric lift profile. With the adjustable 2 stage smoothing function it’s also easy to get
low Jerk values without compromising the lift curve.

Design Page with comparison cam shown in grey:

Zoomed in on the top of the accelleration curve, shows the difference in 1 and 0.1 degree resolution:

Design Report Page:

Flat tappet with design Cam shown inside the old Cam with larger basecircle.

Duration etc. Calc for up to 4 Cams:
Change the centerline and calculate directly the changes in opening, closing degrees, lift
at TDC and eg. 10 deg. before/after TDC etc.

Compare Curves for up to 4 Cams at the same time:

Comparison Cam nr. 1 ( 2 and 3 ):
This Page takes its input from the lift data in mm/inch with 0.1, 1 ,2, 4 or 5 degree steps data in the left Window.
For Hand measured Cams there is the option to smooth the generated lift-velocity-accelleration and jerk data.

Piston movement Page:
Visualize  Valve behavior during the overlap phase.

Cam report Page:
Generates Cam report and/or a Cam Card with specs.

Static Valve Spring Force Calculating Page:

Fast Fourier Tranformation analysis:

Cam explorer Page, only active in the 199.- and 249.- Euro version:
With Interface to the Cam measuring machine electronics .

A complete reference to parts needed from eg. Ebay is supplied, as well as full schematics
to the wiring and firmware for the Arduino Uno board that controls the Steppermotor/Driver and the
Mitutoyo indicator.
Excluding the Mitutoyo indicator and its SPC cable, the price of parts from Ebay adds up
to just under 400 $ (December 2014)..

July 2020, Linear encoder indicator option included.

An example of a Cam measuring Machine made from the referenced parts ( + an aluminium
profile cut and milled, not supplied ) :

An example of what we have done with this program even in its early stages in 2013:

Dyno comparison of a HRC cbr600 exhaust cam (blue) and the improved version we made (red).

If you compare it to the picture below with an older comparison on a similarly prepared engine of the same hrc exhaust cam and
the commonly used in SuperSport WC 1270 grind from England, its clear that the 6 deg longer duration of the 1270 grind lifts
topend power but causes powerloss from the midrange and down, still this was preferred by many teams just to get a single hp
more from 12.000 up.

Our approach was to increase the duration only 4 degrees and use an assymetric lift curve with same closing flank as Hrc
but a slightly more aggresive opening flank (the 1270 actually had milder flanks since it probably  was only a stretced out Hrc
profile not a completely redesigned profile).
