IDEA NOTE Have on actuator perform both the swing and rotation of the work piece.

Linkage ratio is set to 1:1. When the transfer angle reaches 90°, the gripper rotates 90°. As a result the workpiece is now oriented 180° from it's initial orientation.

    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

  • Transfers work pieces on a conveyor to the next process by rotating the work piece 180°. The arm rotates the work piece the first 90° and the linkage rotates the gripper the second 90°.
  • Gripper down→Retain workpiece→Gripper up→ 90° rotate & transfer・Workpiece rotate 90°→Gripper down →Workpiece released →Gripper up.

Target workpiece

  • Shape: Connector
    Size: W50×D10×H15mm
    Weight: 0.1 kg

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Transfer angle: 90 degrees
  • Workpiece rotation angle: 90 degrees
  • Cylinder stroke: 20mm
  • Clamp stroke: 10mm
  • External dims: W100 x D317 x H269 (Before rotation)

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Ratio of fixed linkage and moving linkage ratio to be 1:1.
  • Suppress inertia by reducing weight of swinging components.
  • Confirm that the gear is strong enough to withstand the inertial force.
  • Select the air gripper based on friction coefficient and workpiece weight.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • It is important to calculate the inertia that applies to the stepper motor. The calculations are below.
    • Time that takes to move 90° t 1 : 0.5sec
    • Acceleration time t 0 : 0.01sec
    • Swinging and rotating arm inertia moment: J 1 =4.063×10 ⁻² ㎏・㎡
    • Inertia moment of a gear on the motor shaft: J 2 =3.598×10 ⁵ ㎏・㎡
    • Inertia moment applicable to motor shaft: Since it is via gear, JL = J 1 ×(Number of Teeth of sm. gear / Number of Teeth of L. gear) ² +J 2 =1.019×10 ⁻² ㎏・㎡
    • Operating pulses:A=θ/θs=1250pulses
      Here, the operating angle:θ=90°, Min. step angle of stepping motor:θs=0.072°
    • Operational pulse rate: f2 2 =A/(t 0 -t 1 )=3125Hz
    • Motion speed: NM=θs/360×f 2 ×60=37.5r/min
    • Inertia moment of motor's rotor: J = 0 =2.8×10
    • Motor gear ratio: i = 10
    • Acceleration torque calculation: Ta = (J 0 ・i ² +JL)/9.55×NM/t 1 =0.51N・m
    • Calculation of required torque:TM=Ta×Safety margin=1.02N・m Safety ratio given: 2) Select motor from torque characteristics chart.Motor is OK
    • Verifying inertia ratio: JL/ (J 0 ×i ² )=3.64≦10 is OK

Other Design Consideration

  • The main shaft (center of rotation) and linkage arm to the main shaft are fixed.
  • The gripper at rotation end can elevate and rotate.
