IDEA NOTE Lever Switch

Mechanism to automatically switch the lever in use based on the workpiece shape.

IDEA NOTE  Change of lever position

The structure allows the setup of the lever unit as the workpiece is changed.

IDEA NOTE  Lever Position

Lever position is changed by a tension spring. The load acts in such a way the structure is self-retaining.

    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

  • Lever mechanism allowing lift to separate a tray from its stack of trays.

Points for use

  • Automatic setup mechanism utilizing workpiece (tray) shape.
  • Applicable to mixed stacking of two types of trays.

Target workpiece

  • Shape: panel tray A, panel tray B (difference in notch position)
  • Size: W350 x D450 x H14mm
  • Mass: 2kg

Design Specifications

Operating Conditions or Design Requirements

  • Outer dimensions: W752 x D320 x H75mm
  • Stroke per side: centering by 30mm

Required Performance

  • Workpiece stopping accuracy: 0.1mm

Selection Criteria for Main Components

  • Cylinder thrust and lever strength

Design Evaluation

Verification of main components

  • Load of push spring for tray centering
    • Spring constant: K = 0.1N/mm
    • Installation deflection: 4mm
    • Load deflection: 2mm, total deflection: 6mm
      F1 = 4·0.1 = 0.4N·2 pieces = 0.8N (halfway through centering) . . . (1)
      F2 = 6·0.1 = 0.6N·2 pieces = 1.2N (when centering is completed) . . . (2)
    • Tray weight: m = 0.6kg
    • Friction coefficient of lower surface of tray: μ = 0.1
      Tangential force: Fo = m·g·μ = 0.6·9.8·0.1 = 0.59N . . . (3)
      From (1) and (3),
      0.8 > 0.59N, hence, even when the tray is located close to the spring,
      it is possible to perform centering using the spring reaction force.
      From (2),
      the tray is clamped at a force of 1.2N immediately after the completion of centering.

Other Design Consideration

  • Automatic setup can be achieved from the positional relationship between the lever switching fulcrum and the spring load direction.
