    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 dimensions of the MISUMI parts in the Data, which can be specifed at 1mm intervals, can be edited under historical data.
    6. 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

  • Purpose
    • To raise and lower multiple lifters using one air cylinder.
  • Operation
    • Use several rack and gear sets to move the lifters.

Points for use

  • Individual workpieces are raised and lowered at the same time.

Target workpiece

  • Shape: Connector
  • Size: W150 x D40 x H25mm
    Weight: 0.3 (3 x 0.1)Kg

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Upstroke/Downstroke: 30mm
  • External dimensions: W174 x D745 x H229mm

Required Performance

  • Load: Workpiece + lifting plate + racks = 12.8N

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Select a cylinder with a tube inner diameter of Ø20mm to lift the load (12.8N)

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Validate cylinder thrust based on the applied load.
  • Cylinder selection.
    • Cylinder thrust.
      Conditions (values): Mass applied to a gear (W) = 1.3kg, gravitational acceleration (g) =9.8m/s², and friction coefficient of the rack and pinions (μ) = 1.
    • Load F₁ = μWg = 1 x 1.3 x 9.8 = 12.8N
    • Where the operating pressure is 0.5Mpa, cylinder thrust F₂ = 132N

Other Design Consideration

  • Three sets of rack and pinions can be assembled using common parts.
    When installing the gears, their positions should be adjusted to reduce backlash.
