Pathmate Animation Issue

Hello,

 

First of all, I am new to the SW forums, so please let me know if I am posting in the incorrect area. Anyway, I want to animate a metal tab traveling around a slot-like pathmate, but I am having issues when it comes to the rounded portions. I tried setting the path constraint to "distance along path," but the tab  does not travel the way I want. This seems like a relatively simple task - maybe I am missing something?

 

I tried to work-around by using a linear motor to push the tab along the path, but the linear motor direction does not change with the associated face. Lastly, I do not have motion studies.
