    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

  • A conventional pneumatic gripper is re-designed to save space. Capable of gripping a workpiece by means of a cylinders thrust, using as few items as possible.

Points for use

  • A structure in which the gripper closes in the direction of the cylinder instroke.
  • The claw is fastened to the arm using bolts, this allows easy replacement and substitution of various arms.

Target workpiece

  • Stainless steel round rod.
  • Dimensions: Ø33mm x 120mm
  • Mass: 800g

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Device dimensions: W110 x D80 x H281mm
  • Gripper open/close amount: 17.6mm (one side 8.8mm)

Required Performance

  • Workpiece gripping force: = Workpiece weight = 0.800kg = 7.85N

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Cylinder
    • Select a compact cylinder to save space.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Verify the cylinder has enough thrust to secure the work piece.
  • Cylinder thrust
    • Conditional values: Operating air pressure P = 0.5MPa, instroke pressure receiving area A = 378mm² (catalogue value), distance between cylinder side link and fulcrum (hinge pin) L1 = 67.3mm, distance between fulcrum and workpiece center L2 = 97.1mm, required gripping force F2 = 7.85N
    • Thrust to be found F0 [N] = P x A Thus, F0 = 0.5 x 378 = 189N
    • Required gripping force converted into the cylinder side: F1 [N] = F2 x L2/L1 Thus, F1 = 7.85 x 97.1/ 67.3 = 11.3N
    • Safety factor: 189/11.3 ≈ 16.7

Other Design Consideration

  • Unlike conventional pneumatic grippers, this gripper securely holds workpieces with the cylinder's thrust.
  • Depending on the design of the brackets, this gripper can be installed at any direction.
  • A cover is used at the arm part for mounting the claw to prevent foreign materials from entering the link mechanism of the gripper.
