Application Overview

Purpose

  • Workpieces discharged from a feeder are sorted to the right or the left by a single axis robot.
  • Components are transported by using an air gripper.

Points for use

  • Automated mechanism with air grippers and single axis robots.

Target workpiece

  • Plastic caps
    External dims.: φ20 x L36
    Workpiece weight 6.5g

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • External dimensions: W690 x D428 x H427
  • Single axis robot stroke: 140mm (Workpiece receiving section)-Max operating stroke: 150mm
  • Single axis robot stroke: 115mm (Workpiece Sorting section)-Max operating stroke: 150mm
  • Cylinder with twin guides stroke: 10 mm

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Single axis robot
    • Select a robot with a load capacity that exceeds the combined weight of all the moving mechanisms. This actuator should also satisfy the required allowable moment load rating.
  • Air gripper
    • The allowable static load rating of the gripper should exceed the load weight.
  • Cylinder with guides
    • Select a cylinder with a load rating that is smaller than the allowable eccentric load (from catalog).

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Verify that the motor has the required load capacity to transport the components in both directions. Ensure that the motor has the required allowable moment rating.
  • Single axis robot transported load
    • : 0.253kg
      Air gripper: 37g, Speed controller: 8g x 2, Gripper fingers: 8g x 2, Upper drive base: 87g, Upper carrier bracket; 90g, Workpiece: 6.5g
    • Workpiece sorting mechanism: 1.144kg
      Workpiece retainer plate: 680g, Lower drive base: 388g, Workpiece guide: 27g x 2pcs., Fiber unit: 5g x 2pcs., Workpiece: 6.5g x 2pcs.
    • Robot load capacity: 4kg > Total mass (0.253 + 1.144 = 1.397kg): OK

Other Design Consideration

  • The brackets mounted on the cylinder functions as a location guide for sorting and transporting components.
