    CAD Data Limitations

    1. Assembly data shows the assembly drawings in the concept design phase. The sole purpose of the data is to explain the structure and functionality of the assembly and is not considered nor to be used as a final design.
      You will need to edit the Data so that it meets your specific design conditions.
    2. Unit assembly Data consists of some sub-assemblies.
      It is configured so that each sub-assembly unit can be used as it is or edited.
    3. * The part in the frame is a sub-assembly unit.

    4. The Data for fabricated parts is based on easy-to-edit dimensions and shapes in sketches and histories.
    5. The Data including the third-part components are made by the Company.

Application Overview

Purpose

  • A fixture for soldering PC board.

Points for use

  • Operating procedure
    • The PC board is held down by the fixtures cover.
    • User can perform soldering work on the first side of the PC board.
    • After soldering the first side, lift up the cover, then remove and refit the PC board to its opposite side.
    • Fold down the fixture cover again and begin soldering work on the 2nd side of the PC board.

Target workpiece

  • PC board
  • Dims.: W70 x D45 x t1 (Also compatible with PCB W40 x D80 x t1)

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • External dims.: W120 x D120 x H30
  • Magnet; 7.84N

Required accuracy · Load

  • Cover retaining force: 5.9N

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Magnet
    • Magnetic hold down force should be sufficient to keep the PCB in place during soldering, and yet minimal enough for easy lifting of the cover when soldering is complete.
    • As an example, select magnets with attraction force of approximately 5.9N.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Consider adding handle or hex posts for lifting of cover and overall handling of the fixture.
    • When reversing, load applicable on the magnets: Cover + Hex posts + PCB = 45g + 10g + 5g = 60g = 0.59N
    • Distance between the magnets and magnetic material: 2mm (Magnetic material: 4137 Alloy Steel, screw head)
    • Assumed decay: 0.1
    • Attraction to prevent cover opening: 0.59 / 0.1 = 5.9N
    • Magnetic attraction can vary based on distance, temperature, material and size of magnetic body. Selection is to be made upon actual measurements.

Other Design Consideration

  • Since soldering is applied on reversed sides, hex posts are provided as feet on the cover side. The posts are also used as handles for cover open/close.
  • Locating pins are used to locate the cover.
  • Add notches as needed to avoid wire harness, etc.
  • The hex socket screw heads are used as attracted member since the main body and the cover are made of non-magnetically permeable material.
