    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 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.

Application Overview

Purpose

  • Gripper mechanism that lifts workpiece without transferring load from lifting cylinder.

Points for use

  • Gripping the workpiece is done using guided cylinder.
  • Since workpiece is loosely held inside gripper fingers this design is not recommended in applications that require high positioning accuracy.

Target workpiece

  • Molded plastic assembly
    External dims.: W110 x D40 x H88mm
    Workpiece weight: 167g

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • External dimensions: W217 x D80 x H137mm (When workpiece released)
  • Cylinder stroke: 20mm

Required Performance

  • Cylinder stroke tolerance: +1.5mm MAX.

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Cylinder
    • A cylinder with adequate stroke for the workpiece is selected.
    • Gripping unit is mounted at the end of the robot arm, for space saving purpose low profile cylinders are selected.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Calculation not required since no load applies to the cylinder.

Other Design Consideration

  • When holding the workpiece, use a wide surface for stability.
  • Design should allow some clearance (~2mm) between gripping fingers and workpiece to compensate for cylinder stroke tolerance.
