CHECK OUR EXAMPLES OF CHECKING FIXTURES

Front bumper cover checking fixture

Complete checking fixture for assembled cover

  • Aluminium founding basis
  • Simulation of the vehicle fixations of the part and positionning in vehicle position.
  • Simulation of the part vehicle environment: headlamps, wings, lateral brackets
  • Control of the part by dial indicator points

Basic checking fixture for assembled cover

  • Aluminium base plate with a simple aluminium founding reinforcement frame
  • Fixation of the part by clamps and pins
  • Control of the shape of the part by fixed blocks: control by mountability of the part.
  • Control of the deformation of the extremities of the part by dial indicator.

CMM checking fixture for left and right side covers

  • Aluminium founding basis
  • Simulation of the vehicle fixations of the part and positionning in vehicle position.
  • Simulation of the part vehicle environment: headlamps, wings
  • Control of the part by CMM machine.

Description

Bumper covers fixations are usually a simpler version of the assembly bumpers fixations. Consequently, the costs of the bumper cover fixture may be decreased by designing it and producing it together with the bumper assembly fixture. The control of bumper covers may depend on your activities: if you are in charge of producing the bumper parts, and of assembling the bumper, you may control some of the characteristics of the bumper cover on the bumper assembly fixture; consequently, your bumper cover fixture will be simpler. On the contrary, if you are only in charge of producing the bumper parts, without assembling the bumper, you will need a full check of your part.

Materials and tolerances

Our checking fixtures are produced in aluminium, the components submitted to wear-and-tear are produced in steel. Tolerances for RPS (fixation points) and dial indicator points: ±0.05mm. Tolerances for simulation blocks: ±0.1mm.

Documentation delivered

Minimum documentation: dimensional report of your checking fixture, 2D assembly drawing, assembly CAD.  Optional documentation: R&R report, user manual, stabilization certificate.

Cycle time and traceability

The number of dial indicator control points on bumper cover fixture is extremely variable. In the examples shown in this website, the number of points ranges from 2 to 42 dial indicator points. Consequently, for the versions of fixtures with a high number of control points, it will be crucial to be able to measure your part quickly, and without any risk of mistake. Solutions like CAPTOR-C or CAPTOR-S may be suitable for your fixture. If you are looking for a multifunction and faster solution for this kind of part, then CAPTOR-R may be your answer.
