    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.

  • * 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.

Application Overview

Purpose

  • Using a link mechanism, it is possible to use one cylinder to clamp a workpiece at two points simultaneously.
  • To fix a workpiece for accurate machining.

Points for use

  • Workpiece are mounted and removed manually.
  • By clamping the workpiece, deviation error can be prevented while machining.

Target workpiece

  • Plastic case
  • External dimensions:W100xD100xH10mm

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Stroke: 25mm
  • External dimensions: W400xD160xH169mm

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Rod end bearings
    • Selected to achieve a smooth link motion.
  • Cylinder
    • Select a cylinder with a Clevis

      Originally meant a U-shaped hook. One of the components of a hinge. Provides a method to fix a cylinder where its load swings on a plane

      to handle with swinging of the link.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Select a cylinder that makes link motion possible.
  • Cylinder
    • Cylinder thrust = Load factor x Operation Pressure x Tube I.D. Cross Section
      =0.5×0.4MPa×π/4×20mm×20mm
      =62.8N-①
      Distance from the link center =30mm-②
    • Claw at the cylinder side: Load = 0.11 kg (weight of the claw at the cylinder side + weight of the link) =1.1N-③
      Distance from the link center =80mm-④
    • Claw at the opposite side of the cylinder: Load = 0.13 kg (weight of the claw at the opposite side of the cylinder + weight of the link) =1.3N-⑤
      Distance from the link center =150mm-⑥
      ①x②>③x④+⑤x⑥
      62.8N×30mm>1.1N×80mm+1.3N×150mm
      1884N・mm>283N・mm
      ⇒Thus, select a cylinder with φ 20 mm.

Other Design Consideration

  • A Clevis

    Originally meant a U-shaped hook. One of the components of a hinge. Provides a method to fix a cylinder where its load swings on a plane

    cylinder is used because the link mechanism is utilized.
