When the motion of the follower is along an axis away from the axis of the cam center, it is called an off-set follower.
Follower with zero offsets and Follower with offset
If the follower movement is a displacement from the cam centre, then the follower is called an offset follower, offsetting results in reduced forces and stresses.
The offsetting eccentricity should be in the direction to improve force components tending to jam the translating follower in its bearing guide and decrease the wear between follower and cam surface.
