IDEA NOTE Utilize actuators with adjusting function.

A adjustable actuator eliminates the necessity of a separate adjustment components.

IDEA NOTE Rotation mechanism

To achieve a more compact design, the gripper is mounted in the center of the rotary plate .

    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 dimensions of the MISUMI parts in the Data, which can be specifed at 1mm intervals, can be edited under historical data.
    6. The Data including the third-part components are made by the Company.

Application Overview

Purpose

  • Transfers workpieces to the next stage of the manufacturing process.

Points for use

  • Grips, rotates and elevates components using air linear guide.

Target workpiece

  • Plastic case
    Dims.: φ55 x H20
    Weight: 0.3kg

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Stroke 30mm
  • Air gripper: Tube I.D. φ20
    Max grip force 42N
  • External dims.: W100 x D290 x H366

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Select a rotary table and an air gripper that meets the requirements for load, torque and gripping force.
  • Air linear guide
    • Cylinder thrust = Load ratio x Operating pressure x Tube I.D. area
      = 0.5 × 0.4MPa × π / 4 × 16²mm²
      = 40N > 30N (= Total weight including workpiece: 3kg × 9.8)
  • Rotary table
    • Required torque = Load x 10
      = 0.0044 x 10
      = 0.044Nm < 2.2Nm (Effective torque)
  • Air gripper
    • Grip force = 10 x mg (When friction coefficient is 0.2, the safety margin is to be 10)
      = 10 x 0.3kg x 9.8
      = 29.4N > 3N (= workpiece weight: 0.3kg x 9.8)

Other Design Consideration

  • Workpiece travel distance can be altered by adjusting the stand-by position.
