IDEA NOTE Spring plungers with plastic tips

The spring plungers are used to prevent scratching on the workpiece. The retaining load can also be adjusted with these plungers.

IDEA NOTE Prevent rotation

A stepped bracket, that attaches the toggle clamp to spring plunger, helps prevent rotational motion.

Application Overview

Purpose

  • Fixture to clamp a small-size workpiece while soldering.

Points for use

  • Manual mechanism that utilizes a toggle clamp.

Target workpiece

  • Circuit board
  • External dimension: □ 20 x t 1
  • Connector size W8 x D10 x H 2mm

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Toggle clamp arm open-close angle: 90°
  • Spring plunger load: 0.2 - 1.3 N
  • External dimensions:
    W80xD35xH47mm

Required Performance

  • Workpiece retention load: 0.2 - 1.3N

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Toggle Clamps
    • Application requires a vertical and horizontal handle clamp.
    • Since the load is minimal, a normal handle type is used.
  • Spring Plungers
    • Use the plastic tip part type to prevent scratches to the workpieces.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Verify required work retention load.
  • Plunger load
    • Assumed stroke: 2.5mm
    • Plunger spring constant
      k=1.3/3=0.43N/mm
    • Based on the values above, the assumed workpiece retention load is given as follows:
      F = k x = 0.43 x 2.5 = 1N

Other Design Consideration

  • The applied retaining load can be adjusted with the spring plungers.
