Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
Ljunghäll AB in Södra Vi has many industrial robots in their casting production. These
robots have a tendency to wear out. The purpose with this thesis was to design a toolholder
that was able flip to a 90 degree angle to get a more flexible production but also to
lessen the wear on the robot.
Parts of David G. Ullman and Ulf Liedholm’s design processes was used as a base for
the solutions and the conceptual design.
A number of concepts where made and one of them evaluated to be a refined concept.
The result became a tool-holder that used an air-motor and two spur gears to rotate the
plate where the tool is mounted to a 90 degree angle. According to the calculations that was
made, both by hand and by the computer program COSMOS, the concept should work
in practice. A prototype ought to be made to guarantee the function of the concept.
