IDEA NOTE Using electromagnet to secure position of the fixture

Setup changing is easy to conduct because no bolt tightening is needed.

IDEA NOTE Reduces load to the rotary table

Because of the pin press-fit process for workpieces, the load is applied to the rotary table. Therefore, a cam follower is installed at the lower part of the press-fit location to reduce the load on the rotary table to a minimum. However, if the cam follower contacts the rotary plate during rotation, load in the direction of thrust is applied to the cam follower. A very small gap is created to cope with this issue.

    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

  • Without changing the whole fixture setup attached to rotating actuator only part of fixture holding workpieces are changed. Changing parts of fixture are held in place using electromagnets.

Points for use

  • Toolless set up design.

Target workpiece

  • Plastic parts
  • Dimensions: W70mm x D25mm x H15mm
  • Weight: About 25g

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Dimensions
    • W450mm x D329mm x H210mm

Required Performance

  • Fixture retention force
    • Retention force should be equal or greater than the fixture weight (640g) and it should keep fixture in the same horizontal plane during rotation (equal or greater than centrifugal force).

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Pull force of electromagnet.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Verify the electromagnet pull force is large that fixture weight and centrifugal force.
    • Conditional values: Fixture weight m: 0.64kg, radius of rotation (with the center at the fixture) r: 0.175m, rotation time t: 1s, rotation angle θ: 180° = 3.14rad, g = 9.8m/s²
    • ω = θ/t = 3.14/1 = 3.14 rad/s
    • Centrifugal force: F= m × r × ω² = 0.64 x 0.175 x (3.14)² = 1.1N
      Electromagnetic holder attachment force: about 100N, from catalogue graph value
      ⇒F = 1.1 < 100N…Safety factor 90, m × g = 0.64 × 9.8 = 6.27N < 100N…Safety factor 15.9

      * The electromagnet pull force is largely influenced by surface accuracies of attracted object and gap between magnet and object surface. Therefore, the safety factor is set to a higher value.

Other Design Consideration

  • Make sure that wiring of electromagnets are not tangled with rotary actuator.
  • The fixture is made out of aluminum and resin for weight reduction. Metal plates are added to the fixture and position over electromagnets. Surface of metal plates should be machined to improve surface roughness and minimize gaps between plate and magnet.
  • Metal plate position should be placed as close as possible under center of the gravity of fixture.
