This law should be used in applications where inertia loading is not very significant. For values of less than 10, the use of this law gives rise to shock loading, noise and vibration during operation.
The actual acceleration at the load being driven by this Motion-Law is always more than the nominal value, and for this reason, this segment should only be used in mechanical applications where inertia effects are insignificant.
Pressure Angle Considerations:
This is one of the Traditional Motion-Laws that produce a relatively small pressure angle - and so might allow a smaller cam for a given lift.
When considering drive torques in isolation, the nominal torque for this Motion-Law is the best of Traditional Motion-Laws - it has both the lowest value and the smoothest variation throughout the segment. For compliant systems of high speed systems (period ratio between 2 and 10) the Modified Sine and the Cycloidal are preferred.
