    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.

  • * Unit assembly CAD data consists of some sub-assemblies.
       Each sub-assembly unit can be used as it is or can be edited.

Application Overview

Purpose

  • Pick-up hand to be mounted at the end of robotic arm.

Points for use

  • Capable of handling different size objects as well as lifting multiple objects at the same time.

Target workpiece

  • Panel (Small)
    External dims.: W250 x D400 x t1mm
    Weight: 140g
  • Panel (Large)
    External dims.: W500 D500 x T1mm
    Weight: 300g

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • External dimensions: W370 x D425 x H246mm
  • Suction pad spring adapter stroke: 10mm
    (Spring adapter to compensate for any height difference in workpiece, and impact to pad when pushing pad to a workpiece)
  • Spring constant: 0.032kgf/mm

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Tube
    • Flexible (small bending radius) and economical tube is selected.
  • Suction bracket
    • Bracket easy to connect to fittings and containing an internal spring is selected.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Verify that selected suction pad can handle the needed lifting force.
  • Suction pad required diameter
      • When DA > D, satisfies specification
      • DIA. Of pad used: DA = 20mm
      • Required pad DIA.: D
      • Workpiece mass: M = 0.3kg
      • Safety factor: S = 4 (workpiece hanging horizontally)
      • Number of pads: n = 6pcs.
    • Vacuum level: P = 60[-kPa]
    • D = 2 x √ ((M x 9.8 x S x 1000) / (πxn x P))
      D = 2 x √ ((0.3 x 9.8 x 4 x 1000) / (π x 6 x 60)) = 6.5
      DA = 20 > 6.5 = D

Other Design Consideration

  • The robot hand is made lightweight through the use of aluminum extrusions.
  • Both large and small workpieces can be handled by adjusting the position of the suction cups along the extrusion.
