Disk cam mechanism DF7

Input is the green shaft, on which the orange cam rotates idly. Motion is transmitted to the cam through the pink pin. A quick drop of the follower is obtained by permitting the cam to be pushed out of the way by the follower itself as it reaches the edge of the cam. Gravity maintains permanent contact between follower and cam.
