Jigs and gripper systems

Jigs and gripper systems

We integrate jigs and gripper systems into complex production systems, while providing our customers with design support on important issues such as welding fixtures and accessibility. We also calculate the hardware layout.

Jigs and gripper systems – concept examples

We produce tenter frames, grippers, load-carrying devices and jigs for many common welding procedures, in accordance with customer-specific specifications.

We build spot welders according to defined automotive standards both as stand-alone versions, for example for manual workstations, and for integration into existing systems.

We support our customers in the design of clamping concepts for spot welders and in the design of the welding tongs – we also examine the accessibility of the tongs and the robot.

Projection welder

Movable electrodes make it possible to weld several nuts onto a component using one and the same machine or system, or, as an alternative, to attach nuts of differing sizes one after the other with short cycle times.

Gripping components and holding them securely when transporting from one workstation to the next – this is what geo-grippers and handling grippers do. However, in a workstation they also function as component clamps during joining and assembly work, such as when glueing or when marking codes. This allows nuts or tucker bolts to be welded onto components while they are secured in the gripper.
