Abstract

The augmented Lagrange multiplier method has been used to synthesize the dimensions of a drag-link drive of mechanical presses for precision drawing. The objective functions include the maximum normal force on the guide, mean mechanical advantage, variance of the drawing velocity, etc. The constraints include the working velocity for drawing, variance of the working velocity for precision drawing, time ratio, etc. Based on the concept of kinematic coefficients, a method is proposed to provide suitable initial guesses of the optimization. The drag-link drive thus synthesized has performance superior to an existing press for precision drawing.
