The forces exerted by the clamps hold a panel securely in the fixture against all other external forces. A clamp can be defined as a device for providing an invariant location with respect to an external loading system. The finger clamp is not welded to the clamp arm, instead it is fastened to the clamp by a shoulder screw and two jam nuts. Share them with me and I will include them in a future lesson. It is used for more than clammping line, or similar but different product parts.

Kijin Designing a welding fixture is based on the location layout. Skip to main content. The clajping of base should be flat smooth and the base should be rigid enough for easy welding and machining. Usually two locating pins are enough to properly locate the body part on one plane. It is used for more than product line, or similar but different product parts. Fixture unit to hold the body parts securely and composed of following item: Remember me on this computer. July 27, at 2: July 26, at We often use straight cylinders for clamping.
And here holding the orange part. The welded block claping the end of the clamp arm can help you go around the corner …. The difference between the locate hole in the panel or body part and the locating vesign diameter should be 0. The tapped hole in the block that is welded onto the clamp allows for the use of a simple hex bolt and jam nut for clamping.
Remember that machine design is science, but it is also art. This also doubles as a method for locating or pinning a detail. Either by fixturs a button to the end of the rod. Contact Us Rentapen W. Butler, Wisconsin USA ph: There is deformation of body assembly due to the welding process effect and resulting variation due to part dimensional variation, when you are designing a fixture you should eliminate them and another objective is achieving body clampimg within the required tolerances, so you can achieve this purpose by planning location layout.
SME chapters hold tours and have tons of education available as well as networking opportunities. Locating pins are available in numerous shapes and sizes in a design. Here holding the yellow product part.
In other words a clamp is a force-actuating mechanism of a fixture unit. Some of it has to be addressed by the welder through technique and process. This changes the swing clearance and also allows more room for a weld gun to come down from the top. If you are going to be a good designer of weld fixtures and part-holding jigs you must become familiar with clamps and how to use them and modify them. In this picture the clamp is clamping down between two locating pins with shoulders. There are two configurations for position of locating pin: Rentapen usually makes the fingers out of A2 and heat treats them.
The body part is constrained by a set of appropriately locating pin so total constraint by locating pin should be fully constrained at all times to prevent any movement. Fixtjre device In every welding operation for body assembly, clamping of panel is an essential requirement.
Fingers should be harder material or be treated to resist weld splatter. One of the pins is round, and another one is diamond shaped. The shape of locating surface is a form of cross-section of panel. Notice the rest pads have yellow shim packs under them. So, designing a fixture in this plane is often a complex process, considering the variations in coordinate systems and basic rules such as maintaining few elements in specific orientations.
Aradal The forces exerted by the clamps hold a panel securely in the fixture against all other external forces. Either by adding a button to the end of the rod. We often use straight cylinders for clamping. I am not an expert on welding. Share them with me and I will include them in a future lesson. One of the pins is round, and another one is diamond shaped. A similar question came up and I posted it on linked in.
BIW FIXTURE CLAMPING DESIGN PDF
Shakagal BIW Welding Fixture Design It involves numbers of fixture units and due to the complexity and shape of the component geometry, the choice of elements as well as configuration of each unit tends to change from case to case. Load condition and configuration are not uniform, so it is impossible to set a base shape in general. Skip wdlding main content. The framework of the base is usually made of shape steel.
