We design and build a variety of Prototype Assembly weld fixtures to customers requirements. The weld fixture shown is for a Lower Door Inner. Aluminum details on an aluminum base with steel pins, nets/clamps that locate each part prior to being welded.
The Assembly check fixture shown is used for checking the final welded Assembly. Aluminum details on 1-1/4'' aluminum base is built to the supplied GD&T with pins, nets/clamps, and swing assemblies to check entire assembly. This fixture was supplied with a welded steel cart with casters that enables the fixture to be moved easily.
The Z/A shown is for a draw die Door. This Z/A is being roughed on our 75 hp rougher and then will finish cut on one of our 120” × 72” × 72” 4-axis finish mills. We are capable of cutting Z/A as large as a full bodyside panel.
Here is an example of our standard 3mm fixture, built out of gray plank and on a 1'' alum base plate. This particular fixture is for a Door Inner that locates the part to a required datum scheme from the GD&T.
Our Prototype shop CMM certifies our fixtures to tolerances required. With an inspection travel of 60'' x 96'' x 60'' we're able to certify most fixtures. For certification of fixtures that require a larger window we use our 72" x 192" x 62'' Production CMM .
