English term or phrase: overload cam
Hola, estoy con (fragmentos de) un manual de envasado de botellas. La expresión OVERLOAD CAM sale en un gráfico dentro de un apartado titulado "Cam Track Assembly", pero no vuelve a aparecer en todo el texto. El fragmento inmediatamente anterior al gráfico es éste, por si a alguien le sirve de apoyo:

"Cam Track Assembly:
The basket flights rotate around the upper half of the machine by use of the top and bottom chain rails and cam track. The cam track is responsible for raising or lowering the basket flights at the correct moment. Figure 5.2 illustrates the path that the basket flights travel and major components.

Each basket flight has a cam roller that follows the cam track shown in Figure 5.2. This is what raises and lowers each of the basket flights."

Google me ha dado "second cam element" como sinónimo de "overload cam", pero aun así no sé a qué se refiere. ¿Alguien sabría identificarlo, por favor?

¡Muchas gracias!
