    This data is utilized in order to list more useful application examples in the future.

    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.

Application Overview

Purpose

  • Pick and place transfer with suction holder.

Target workpiece

  • Plastic disc.
  • Workpiece size: Ø84, height 13mm
  • Workpiece weight: 20g

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Stroke: 500mm
  • External dims.: W990 x D347 x H311mm

Required Performance

  • Positioning accuracy: ±0.9mm
  • Robot transfer weight: 3kg

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • A single axis robot is used since multiple positions are needed over a single stroke.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Select an appropriate suction holder for suction holding the workpiece and a robot which satisfies the transfer specifications (load capacity, speed, stroke).
  • Selection of suction holder
    • Conditional value: Workpiece weight Mw = 0.02kg
      Gravitational acceleration g = 9.8m/s²
      Approx. suction force Fr = Mw x g x 1.2 = 0.02 x 9.8 x 1.2 = 0.24N *1.2 is a 20% buffer since its approximate.
      Temporary pad DIA. selection: Ø10mm
      Pad area A: 0.785cm²
      When the vacuum Va is assumed to be: 40 - kPa,
    • Suction force Fv = (A x Va) / 101 x 10.13 = (0.785 x 40) / 101 x 10.13 = 3.15N
      Fv >> Fr thus no problem.
  • Selection of single axis robot
    • (1) Load capacity → Select from [Max. load capacity]: 3kg
      (2) Stroke → Select from [Stroke]: 500mm
      (3) Cycle time → Select from [Cycle time graph] 1.2sec
      RS220-C1-N-3-700 is selected.
      (4) Detail confirmation
      Overhang: At 4kg, 53.5mm against allowable value of 120mm, thus no problem.

Other Design Consideration

  • With the longer stroke use a cable carrier to prevent the wiring harness from getting tangled or damaged.
  • Correction: To prevent suction loss due to deterioration of the suction cup, a periodical maintenance is necessary.
