IDEA NOTE Workpiece is attracted by a magnet

Magnet position can be adjusted to change the holding force of the workpiece.

IDEA NOTE Clips with torsional springs are used to fix the workpiece.

To compensate for different length objects, the number of clips used can be adjusted.

    Cautions on the CAD data

    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. The CAD data unit assembly consists of sub-assemblies.
      Each sub-assembly unit can be used as it is or can be 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.

       Each sub-assembly unit can be used as it is or can be edited.

Application Overview

Purpose

  • Clamping mechanism which utilizes magnets as well as clips.
  • Each clamp is separated allowing multiple points of contact.

Points for use

  • The magnet locates the workpiece, and the clips hold it in place.

Target workpiece

  • Long magnetic objects.
    Dims: W50 x D150 x H30, t3

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • External dims.: W300 x D60 x H86

Required Performance

  • Spring load: 10.23N (Unclamped)
    8.26N (Workpiece clamped)

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Clamps
    • Spring with low constant is selected in order to reduce the operation efforts.
  • Magnet
    • Select a magnet with attraction force appropriate for the application.
    • For this example, springs with constant: 2.44N・mm/deg.are selected.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Select a spring appropriate for the application.
  •  Spring load
    • Calculation formula: Reaction force F = k x θ / l
      Spring constant (k) : 2.44N・mm/deg
      Max. operational angle (θ) : 78°
      Load point distance from the coil center (I) : 18.6mm
  • Clamp released
    • Spring. operational angle (θ) : 78°
      F = 2.44 x 78 / 18.6 = 10.23N
  • Workpiece clamp
    • Spring. operational angle (θ) : 63°
      F = 2.44 x 63 / 18.6 = 8.26N

Other Design Consideration

  • Magnetic attraction force can be adjusted by magnet size and position.
  • Select a torsional spring that makes the clip easily operational.
  • Provide a magnet block and fixing pins on the right hand side to accommodate different workpieces.
