Points for use

  • For non-metal products like cardboard.
  • The size of a cardboard box is recognized in advance and automatic adjustment is performed by the cylinder and servo motor.

Target workpiece

  • Shape: cardboard box
  • Size: W200 x D200 (180·160) x H275 (up to 310) mm
  • Mass: 2kg

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Cardboard box width adjustment stroke: 10 and 20mm (2-step cylinder)
  • Cardboard box lid closing right/left stroke: 75mm
  • Cardboard box lid closing vertical stroke: 250mm
  • Cardboard box width adjustment stroke/vertical stroke of lid closing right and left mechanisms: max. 34mm

Required Performance

  • Workpiece stopping accuracy: 1mm

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • A motor that can retain its position after height setup change is selected.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Vertical motor
    • Motor shaft-converted moment of inertia.
      Reduction ratio: 1/20
      Part 213 mass m = 0.122kg I1 = 1/8·m·D2 = 1/8·0.122·0.042 = 2.44 x 10⁻³kg·m²
      Part 212 mass m = 0.137kg I2 = 1/12·m·(A2 + B2) = 1/12·0.137·(0.042 + 0.0842) = 9.8 x 10⁻³kg·m²
      Part 210 mass m = 5.7 x 10⁻³kg I3 = m·r2 = 5.7 x 10⁻³·0.02252 = 2.9 x 10⁻⁶kg·m²
      Vertical movable part total mass m = 2.2kg I4 = m·r2 = 2.2·0.0442 = 4.2 x 10⁻³kg·m²
      Shaft-converted total moment of inertia (I1 + I2 + I3 + I4)·(1/20)² = (2.44 x 10⁻⁵ + 9.8 x 10⁻⁵ + 2.9 x 10⁻⁶ + 4.2 x 10⁻³) = 1.1 x 10⁻⁵kg·m² = 0.11kg·m² . . . I(1)
    • Inertia ratio
      Rotor moment of inertia 0.078kg·m² = 7.8 x 10⁻⁶kg·m² (catalog value) . . . I(2)
      Inertia ratio I1/I2 = 0.11/0.078 = 1.4 times (catalog value is acceptable)
    • Motor load factor
      Reduction ratio: 1/20
      Movement amount per rotation of lever 88 x 3.14 = 276mm
      Movement amount per rotation of motor 276 x 20 = 13.8mm/rev
      Positioning time t = 2.0S (acceleration time 0.5S constant speed time 1.0S)
      Movement amount L = 34mm
      Movement speed L·60/t = 34·60/1.5 = 1360mm/min
      Motor rotation speed N = 1360/13.8 = 98.6rev/min
      Acceleration torque I1 + I2/9.55·N/t = 1.1 x 10⁻⁵ + 7.8 x 10⁻⁶/9.55·98.6/0.5 = 4.0 x 10⁻⁴N·m . . . T(1)
      Motor shaft-converted load torque m·g·r/20 = 2.2·9.8·0.044/20 = 0.0475N·m . . . T(2)
      Total torque T1 + T2 = 4.0 x 10⁻⁴ + 0.0475 = 0.0479N·m
      Motor rated torque 0.32N·m
      Motor load factor 0.0479/0.32·100 = 15%
      Therefore, this motor is selected.

Other Design Consideration

  • Height adjustment mechanism operated by a motor and link.
