IDEA NOTE Simultaneous grip, rotate, and feed operation

A mechanism to grip the supplied workpiece, rotate it by 90 degrees and feed it can be accomplished by a single cylinder.

IDEA NOTE Adopting a urethane pad on the upper part of the clamp

Adoption of a urethane pad increases the friction force at clamping and absorbs variation in workpiece sizes.

    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

  • Purpose
    • Feeding the workpiece after rotating 90°.
  • Operation
    • On the output side of the cylinder, the clamped workpiece is unclamped at the first return stroke after the swing arm tumbles hitting the stopper surface and comes to a halt. At the cylinder return side, the arm rises up in an unclamped condition, hits the stopper surface and comes to a halt. When the cylinder moves again toward the output side, the workpiece is clamped at the beginning of the stroke.

Target workpiece

  • Shape: Small-size battery case
  • Size: W 22 x L 45 x H 10 mm
  • Weight: 0.03 kg

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Grips the workpiece after receiving it.
  • Rotation: 90°
  • Work head drop: 100 mm

Required Performance

  • Locating accuracy: ± 1 mm

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Cylinder
    • Small-size, double-acting
  • Tension spring
    • Auxiliary part for initially performing the clamp motion/Retaining workpieces during revolution motion .
      Spring constant k = 0.22 N/mm
      Spring tensile length l = 11.7 mm
      Workpiece retaining force = k x l = 2.57 N

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Verify the cylinder thrust and spring load from the load moment.
  • Check the force to operate the arm.
    • Conditional values: Workpiece mass m = 0.03 kg
      Gravitational acceleration = 9.8 m/s²
      Cylinder diameter = 16 mm
      Supply pressure = 0.5 Mpa
      Mechanical efficiency = 80%

      Distance between the tension spring shaft and the rotary shaft at the chuck release: L1 = 10.5 mm
      Distance between the tension spring shaft and the rotary shaft after the workpiece is moved: L2 = 28.3 mm
      Distance between the tension spring shaft and the rotary shaft at the chuck release: L3 = 38.4 mm
      Distance between the cylinder shaft and the rotary shaft after the workpiece is moved: L4 = 17.3 mm

      Tension spring natural length L = 80 mm
      Initial tension of the tension spring: F1 = 3.73 N
      Length of the tension spring at the chuck release: L5 = 114 mm
      Length of the tension spring after revolution of the workpiece: L6 = 99 mm
      Spring constant k = 0.22 N/mm
      Tension of the tension spring at the chuck release: F2 = F1+ k x (L5-L) = 3.73 + 0.22 x (114 - 80) = 11.2 N
      Tension of the tension spring at the chuck release: F3 = F1+ k x (L6-L) = 3.73 + 0.22 x (99 - 80) = 7.9 N
      Cylinder thrust F4 = 101 N
      Cylinder thrust F5 = 75 N

      Moment ratio.
      In chuck operation/arm revolution.
      Moment generated by the cylinder thrust. From M1 = F4 x L3, M1 = 101x 38.4 = 3879 N・mm
      Moment generated by the spring. From M2 = F2 x L1, M2 = 11.2 x 10.5 = 117.6 N・mm

      When the arm is pulled up after revolution of the workpiece.
      Moment generated by the cylinder thrust. From M3=F5×L4, M3 = 75 x 17.3 = 1297.5 N・mm
      Moment generated by the spring. From M4 = F3 x L2, M4 = 7.9 x 28.3 = 223.6 N・mm

      From calculations shown above, we obtain M1≫M2 and M3≫M4, which shows that the arm drive operates without delay.

Other Design Consideration

  • Shape of the shoulder pad for locating the main revolution arm.
  • Link shape at the chuck part that fixes the grip release angle and grip close angle.
