Two Approaches for Greenization of Fixture Design and Corresponding Technology Innovation


Article Preview

The research on greenization of fixture technology is next to nothing nearly now. Approaches for greenization of fixture technology were discussed based on the analysis of energy forms and medium of fluid transmission. The feasibility that using manual fixture with multiple series supper-force-amplified device instead of power driven fixture was presented in the point of view for greenization of energy type. The working principle of manual fixture with four-step series force-amplified device, which we have invented independently, was introduced. According to the thought for greenization of medium of fluid transmission, the feasibility that employing pneumatic fixture with force-amplified device or pneumatic-hydraulic pressure-amplified device instead of hydraulic fixture. The innovated pneumatic fixture with sphere-coin two-step force-amplified device and the two-action pneumatic-hydraulic pressure-amplified device with two steps of pressure output were illustrated briefly by means of diagram.
