Abstract

The operation of a new rotating ball follower is presented. The influence of the values of the selected geo-metrical parameters of the rotating ball follower by simulation are analyzed. The ranges of value of these parameters ensuring correct operation of the rotating ball follower are defined. The operation of the rotating ball follower in real conditions are verified.
