The graphical-analytical methods are mentioned as being straightforward and expedite. The paper presents a graphical-analytical method for the kinematical analysis of a mechanism with rotating cam and oscillating flat-face follower. The manner supposes considering the contact point as a separate element of the mechanism and using concurrently the replacing mechanism with lower pairs and the actual mechanism, the relative motions from the contact point of the cam and contact point of the follower, respectively, are established. The methodology is exemplified for an actual case.
