    CAD Data Limitations

    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. Unit assembly Data consists of some sub-assemblies.
      It is configured so that each sub-assembly unit can be used as it is or 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

  • Purpose
    • This adjustment mechanism is mounted to a loader and adjusts the inclination angle of a dispenser.
  • Operation
    • By loosening the rotary plate fixing bolt and turning the adjusting bolt, the inclination angle of the dispenser is adjusted.

Points for use

  • Manual angle adjustment.

Target workpiece

  • Shape: circuit board
  • Size: W65 x D20 x t1.6mm
  • Weight:5g

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Dispenser inclination angle adjustment: 45°±8° (37° to 53°)
  • Outer dimensions: W123 x D120 x H56mm

Required Performance

  • Depends on the positioning accuracy of the loader, etc.

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Cam Follower
    • A cam follower (CFFRS6-16) that has an outer ring thickness suitable for pressing the rotary plate (thickness: 13mm) and a size small enough to be mounted on this mechanism is selected.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Verify that the rotary arm and adjusting bolt can create the required inclination angle resolution.
  • Calculation of resolution of angle adjustment mechanism.
    • Conditional value: adjustable angle θ = 8°, adjusting bolt thread diameter M6, pitch of M6 thread P = 1mm, movable range of adjusting nut L = 16.4mm, distance between rotation center of rotary arm and adjusting bolt (rotary arm length) R = 117mm
    • As the resolution at center of adjustment range: Δθ1, and the travel distance per rotation of adjusting bolt = pitch of M6 thread P = 1, sinΔθ1 = P/R = 1
      Δθ1 = sin-1(P/R) = sin-1(1/117) = 0.490°/rotation
    • Where resolution at adjustment range limit: Δθ2, angle formed by rotary arm and adjustment range center : α, distance between adjusting nut and adjustment range center: L = 16.4, angle at center formed by rotary arm adjustment range center and arm travel made when adjusting bolt is rotated one revolution: β, as α - β = Δθ2 and sinα = L/R, sinβ = (L - P)/R,
      Δθ2 = α - β = sin-1(L/R) - sin-1((L - P)/R) = sin-1(16.4/117) - sin-1 ((16.4 - 1)/117) = 8.0578 - 7.5634 = 0.494°/rotation

Other Design Consideration

  • Applying a preload to the cam follower on the pushing side ensures the adjustment mechanism will not have backlash in the radial direction.
