IDEA NOTE The workpiece is retained by the force of a spring until it is unclamped and released by a pusher mechanism.

The workpiece being clamped by the spring is unclamped as the cylinder presses the pusher against the hinge block to incline the hinge to the center.

    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.

       It is configured so that each sub-assembly unit can be used as it is or edited.

Application Overview

Purpose

  • Clamps workpiece using a spring attached to the workpiece holder.
  • The clamp mechanism is unclamped by having a cylinder push against a hinge block.

Points for use

  • The workpiece is suctioned and transferred to the charging/discharging position by another unit.

Target workpiece

  • Workpiece: resin case
    Material:ABS
    outer dimensions:66 x 27 x 15

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Cylinder Stroke: 43mm
  • Deflection of tension spring: 5mm
  • Outer dimensions: W240 x D240 x H266 (overall dimensions)

Required Performance

  • Cylinder thrust of 21N or higher
    (Following the calculation process, a cylinder with a cylinder thrust with a safety factor 1.5 times the spring force was selected.)
  • Required clamping force: 10N

Selection criteria for Main Components

  • Cylinder
    • Select components that will satisfy stroke and load requirements.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • A spring with the required clamping force was selected, and the cylinder for unclamping was selected according to the spring force.
  • Load of tension spring
    • Required clamping load: FA = 10N 
    • Spring deflection during clamping: x = 11mm
    • Number of used springs: n = 2 pieces
    • Spring initial tension: f = 1.67N
    • FA = n (kx + f)
    • From k = (FA/n - f)/x = (10/2 - 1.67)/11 = 0.30,
    • Spring constant: k = 0.32N/mm was selected.
  • Cylinder thrust
    • Spring force during unclamping: FB
    • Spring deflection during unclamping: d = 16mm
    • FB = n (kd + f)
    • =2 × (0.32×16+1.67 )= 13.58N
    • If safety factor is set to 1.5, 13.58×1.5 ≈ 20.37N.
    • When cylinder thrust P > FB, the specification is satisfied.

Other Design Consideration

  • Workpiece is firmly held in place through the spring mechanism while it is being transferred by the turn table.
  • The pusher (cylinder) stands by at the unclamp position and the turn table (another unit) transfers the workpiece to the unclamp position.
