It is absolutely essential for you to have your Cam tracks inspected periodically
They perform a crucial role in the overall operation of your cotton harvester and can have a serious impact on the profitability of your operation. The efficiency of your harvester’s cotton pickling operation is dependent on the precise calibration of several moving parts within very small tolerances. Even a small amount of wear in the cam track assembly resulting from every day use, or dirt or debris build-up can end up costing you a lot of money.
The Cam Track Affects Vehicle Speed and Efficiency
Due to the cam track’s critical effect on the high-speed rotation of the picker bar and the rearward spindle tip motion, it is one of the most critical components in the picking operation and will affect the vehicle’s speed and efficiency. The cam track rotates the picker bar around the vertical axis to control the spindle tip speed, which in turn facilitates a higher drum speed.
Greater Efficiency with No Damage to Cotton Plants
If the cam is operating correctly, the harvester can pick cotton faster with no damage to the cotton plants. The cam track also orients the spindles as they rotate around the track. This ensures an optimum angle as the spindle passes by the pressure doors through the picking zone and then under the doffers and moistener pads.
It is vital that the motion of the spindles allows the cotton to be picked cleanly off the spindles, as they are doffed. Furthermore, the spindles are cleaned as they pass under the moistener pads, ensuring that the cotton is collected quickly and efficiently without binding or clogging the system.
It is vital, therefore, that your cam tracks are in good working order and correctly adjusted.
