Cam tracks perform a crucial role in the overall operation of a cotton picker, and that’s why it’s essential to have them inspected periodically. If a cam track should become fouled by dirt or debris, or if any part of the assembly becomes worn down, it can have a significant impact on the overall efficiency of your cotton-picking operation. While the same thing could be said for many other assemblies and individual components in a cotton picker, the cam tracks deserve some special attention because of their relationship with vehicle speed and efficiency.
The cam track arrangement is critical for reducing any kind of destructive or counterproductive effects that might be produced by high-speed drum rotation and rearward spindle tip motion through the picking zone. The cam is tasked with rotating the picker bar around its upright axis to modify the speed of the spindle tip, which then facilitates a higher drum speed. The spindle tip movement encourages a higher ground speed for the cotton picker with no corresponding efficiency loss and no damage to the cotton plants themselves. In addition to spindle tip speed, the cam track also orients the spindles as they rotate around the track to the optimum angle as the spindle passes under the doffers and moistener pads. This motion allows the cotton to be picked cleanly off the spindles as they are doffed, and the spindles to be cleaned as they pass under the moistener pads.
