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.
Complex joining sequences can be performed in one device, taking into account the operator ergonomics and cycle time.
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.
The design of the projection welder, with hydraulic electrode compensation, allows two nuts to be welded in quick succession.
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.
This welder for the MAG welding of components is used in robot-assisted production.
For the fully automated WIG welding procedure, we not only build the device but also take care of the automatic filling and emptying of the device.
We supply the complete clamping technology for parts from the car prototype construction, for instance for the side panel, undercarriage and roof.
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.
