    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

  • (Objective) One cylinder clamps in four directions.
  • (Operation) Pallets transferred on a roller conveyor are centered at working position.

Points for use

  • Production line where the pallets are detected by photomicrosensor and stopped on the conveyor.
  • Pallet evacuation mechanism is not needed.

Target workpiece

  • Shape: Pallet
    Size: W450 x D300 x H20mm
    Weight: 5kg

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Cylinder stroke: 75mm
  • Clamp stroke: 5mm

Required Performance

  • Conveyor stopping accuracy; ±45 / 300mm

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Set the required linkage operation length (75mm) to be at 60 degrees to the center linkage connecting two sliders.
  • Select a cylinder size according to friction coefficient and weight of the pallet.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Compare the process resistance force to the friction between the pallet and the roller conveyor.
    • The friction coefficient between the pallet and the roller conveyor should be 0.2.
    • Required force for motion: Fp = 5 x 0.2 x 9.8 = 9.8N of force can slide.
    • From cylinder force chart,
      Thrust of Ø25 cylinder pull thrust when operation pressure 0.5MPa Fs = 189N
    • Process force withstandable: F = Fs - Fp, so F = 189 - 9.8 = 179.2N
      Therefore, the externally applied process force must be set to less than 179N

Other Design Consideration

  • During evacuation, the workpiece needs to stop on the conveyor within the center of four outside rollers.
  • Determine the positions of 8 rollers according to pallet external dimensions.
  • Determine the stroke based on roller evacuation position.
  • Determine clamping force based on pallet weight and process force.
