    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

  • Puts the workpiece in an air tight chamber. Air is blown in from external unit to check for air leakage in the weld on the workpiece.
  • The sponge sheet acts as a stopper for the cylinder stroke.

Points for use

  • A manual mechanism puts in and takes out the workpiece.

Target workpiece

  • Heat-welded plastic cases.
  • External dimensions: φ86 x 33mm
  • Weight 80g

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Fixture slider stroke 250mm.
  • Cylinder stroke 45mm
  • External dimensions: W400xD430xH339mm

Required Performance

  • Cylinder thrust 113N or more at operating pressure of 0.4MPa.

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Cylinder
    • Ensure the cylinder meets the required thrust.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Select the cylinder thrust from the counterforce at sheet compression.
  • Cylinder
    • Conditional values: Sheet compression stress p = 0.021MPa, sheet compression area S = 5408mm²
    • Counterforce at sheet compression: R = p × S Thus, R = 0.021 × 5408 ≒ 113N
      ⇒Select a cylinder with a thrust of 126N.

Other Design Consideration

  • Use of a fixture slider simplifies design.
  • The cylinder needs to compress the EPT sealer sponge to 70% or less of its thickness to ensure being air tight.
  • Installing a separate pressure gauge between the compressor and the corresponding equipment allows air leakage to be accurately detected.
  • A cover is installed on the cylinder operating part for safety.
