    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.

Application Overview

Purpose

  • Aligning mechanism using pneumatics and a linear guide.
  • An aluminum extrusion column is used as support for the mechanism.
  • The workpiece is laterally aligned using this mechanism.

Points for use

  • A workpiece is transferred from point A to point B.
  • It is laterally constrained on the sides by the linear guide and pneumatic mechanism.

Target workpiece

  • Workpiece in thin plate shape (resin).
  • Outer dimensions: W640 x D320 (D640) x H2.2mm
  • Mass: 0.53kg (1.06kg)
  • The values in parentheses are those of another workpiece with different dimensions.

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Alignment mechanism:
    Workpiece outstroking (alignment) stroke: 5mm
  • Device outer dimensions: W100 x D150 x H236mm

Required Performance

  • Pneumatically driven linear guide
    Total weight of loading mechanism [kg]: 0.08 (block) + 2 x 0.04 (roller pushers) + 1.06 (workpiece) = 1.22kg
  • Alignment accuracy: ±0.2mm

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Pneumatically driven linear guide
    • The thrust required for pushing a workpiece of 4.8N is selected.

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • The cylinder thrust is verified based on the workpiece load.
  • Thrust of pneumatically driven linear guide
    • Load: F = mgμ
    • Mass: m = 1.22kg (total weight of pneumatically driven linear guide mounting parts + workpiece weight)
    • Friction coefficient of conveyor roller in another unit: μ = 0.4
    • Load applied to cylinder: F = 1.22 x 9.8 x 0.4 = 4.8N
    • Cylinder output (when outstroking)
    • Outstroke thrust: F1 = η x A1 x P
    • Load factor: η = 1 (from catalog)
    • Outstroke pressure area: A1 = 201mm² (from catalog)
    • Operating pressure: P = 0.4Mpa
    • F1 = 1 x 201 x 0.4 = 80.4N
    • Safety factor: F1/F = 80.4/4.8 = 16.8

Other Design Consideration

  • Alignment mechanism is mounted on the extruded aluminum column.
  • Adjust the height of the aluminum column to adjust alignment mechanism height.
  • Select a cylinder force that is sufficient for alignment and ensure it will not damage the workpiece.
