Optimization of Clamping Pressures

In the design of clamping devices, the question of the deformations at different clamping pressures is often relevant. By simulating the clamping device in the concept phase, the deformations can be determined and optimized accordingly.

This entry shows how the calculation model is built by using library parts in mesh parts. The clamping pressures are varied accordingly, so that the deformation of the workpiece is minimal. The maximum deformation could be reduced by 28% - with the same total clamping force.
