Fixture design for arc welding

Would you like to increase the utilization of your machines and produce welded assemblies in small lot sizes cost-effectively and with the same high quality? Then you should produce fixtures from sheet metal and laser-cut tubes in the future. It's easier and cheaper than you think.

Example: optimized fixture made of tubes for arc welding

The numerous milled parts in the conventional fixture are both time-consuming and cost-intensive. The costs of chipping manufacture are high and fits for pins and threads are necessary. The assembly must be welded when it is lying down. A tube plug-in design replaces the entire milling block. Its advantages: fewer parts, less effort. The vertical design of the fixture also makes it easily accessible for manual as well as automated arc welding, e.g. on a TruArc Weld 1000.
