New methods are presented for the design of high-speed cam profiles. These methods have the advantage of assuring the accuracy of the assumed mathematical model while at the same time providing for good dynamic performance. These methods do not rely on rules of thumb. In fact, it is shown that at high speeds low vibration motions exist which violate heretofore commonly accepted empirical design rules.
