Double cam and gear rack mechanism

Input: green double cam

Output: pink awl, the point of which traces green closed line.

Change cam profiles for various shapes of the line.

Grey bar, violet slider and orange lever create a coulisse mechanism.

Pink rack is not always perpendicular to the line connecting cam and gear centers so some tooth gap of the rack-gear drive is needed.

The mechanism is applied in shoe making machines.
