Cam and gear mechanism 5

Input is the green shaft with a green gear and an eccentric portion on which the pink conrod idly rotates. The yellow output slider receives motion from the blue arm that has a pin sliding in the groove of the cam fixed on the orange gear. Transmission ratio of the gear drive is 1. The blue arm is also connected to the violet slider that received motion from the pink conrod.

The motion combination gives long stroke of the yellow slider, a slotter’s ram.
