Application Overview

Purpose

  • Fixture used to measure the surface roughness of workpieces.

Points for use

  • Manual mechanism with toggle clamp operation.
  • Because measurements are taken often, the workpiece is simply placed on the holder.

Target workpiece

  • Stainless Steel material
    Dims.: φ30 x H30
    Weight: 170g

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Toggle clamp operation angle: 5.5°
  • Spring deflection: 5mm
  • External dims.: W100 x D250 x H174

Required Performance

  • Pressure load: 0.6N/cm²
  • Spring constant: 1N/mm
  • This application uses 4 springs.

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Toggle clamp
    • Vertical type with high clamping force are used to retain spring reaction force.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Select a spring that can support the load weight.
  • Spring load
    • Calculation formula: Reaction force : F=kx
    • Assumed load: F = 52N (Four springs)
    • Set length: 57mm, Free length: 65mm
    • Assumed deflection under pressure: x = 13mm (When set 8mm, When stroked 5mm),
    • then k = F / x / (4 pcs.) = 52 / 13 / 4= 1 N/mm
    • Spring constant: k =1N/mm is selected

Other Design Consideration

  • Since the fixture is used often, the mechanism is designed for quick setup through the use of the toggle clamp.
  • The toggle clamp is positioned to press on the mechanisms center of gravity.
  • The spring load is 5x the retaining load to provide stability during the inspection process.
    (Spring load of 52N against measurement instrument weight of 10N)
  • The work platform height is adjusted on the instrument side (10mm up/down)
  • Since the full stroke of the toggle clamp is not used, the clamp contacts the upper plate. A piece of urethane is provided to protect the piece in contact with the clamp.
