When a welding process is producing a load or moment on the body part, it is necessary that a weldong clamping force must be exerted to withstand such actions.

There is deformation of body assembly weldinh 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 quality within the required tolerances, so you can achieve this ffixtures by planning location layout. The forces exerted by the clamps hold a panel securely in the fixture against all other external forces. One of the pins is round, and another one is diamond shaped.

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. So, designing a fixture in this plane fixfures often a complex process, considering the variations in coordinate systems and basic rules such as maintaining few elements in specific orientations.


BIW Fixture Design: What is BIW ?

Designing a welding fixture is based on the location layout. Click here to sign up. The generalized requirements of clamping device can be summarized as: This is usually done with the datum surfaces that are reference for locating surface. In most applications, locating surface devices locate a panel by its external flat surfaces and flat area, such as: Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link. Load condition and configuration are not uniform, so it is impossible to set a base shape in general.

Usually two locating pins are enough to properly locate the body part on one plane. The surface of base should be flat smooth and the base should be rigid enough for easy welding and machining.


Locating pins are available in numerous shapes and sizes in a design. Skip to main content. In other words a clamp is a force-actuating mechanism of a fixture unit. Clamping device In every welding operation for body biww, clamping of panel is an essential requirement.

The dimension from the panel to the locating pin leading end straight area should be 5 mm.

This configuration will allow easier loading of body part. The framework of the base is usually made of shape steel. The end of each pin has a round or weldong shape or is chamfered for the purpose of maintaining workability such as ease of loading and quality such as prevention of damage.

Help Center Find new research papers in: Fixture unit to hold the body weldlng securely and composed of following item: The dimensions of datum surface are decided by selecting a necessary cross- section from the part drawing. A clamp can be defined as a device for providing an invariant location with respect to an external loading system.


The body part is constrained by a set of appropriately locating pin so total constraint by locating pin should be fully constrained at dixtures times to prevent any movement.

The difference between the locate hole in the panel or body part and the locating pin diameter should be 0. Log In Sign Bow. The taper lead angle is large, 60 degrees or less, for small-size body parts and manual operation, but it is frequently between10 and 30 degrees for large-size body parts that are difficult to handle.

Location layout is the selection of the positions and numbers of locators and clamps for assembly of fixture components into a final configuration on a fixture base. There are two configurations for position of locating pin: Locating surface is configured to receive panel for setting in a correct position and locating a body part from any surface such as flat, curved, or have an irregular contour.

The shape of locating surface is a form of cross-section of panel. Remember me on this computer.
