Green Manufacturing: A Lever-Wedge Self-Locking Force Amplifying Clamping Device Driven by Linear Motor
Here introduces a kind of clamping device which is driven by linear motor and makes use of lever-wedge serial mechanism to amplify input force and to realize self-locking. We analyze its working principle and structure feature, give the calculation formulas of force amplification coefficient and output force. Compared with hydraulic clamping device or pneumatic clamping device, this kind of clamping device has the advantages: few conversion segments, no energy consumed during machining and no environment pollution.
