CHECK OUR EXAMPLES OF CHECKING FIXTURES

Foglamp trim checking fixture

Checking fixture for foglamp trim with an aluminium founding basis

  • Positionning of the left and right fixtures in vehicle position by an aluminium founding basis
  • Simulation of the part clipping system by steel clips submitted to a chemical nickel treatment
  • Simulation of the vehicle environment of the part by sliding blocks that can be put aside easily and quickly to mount and dismount the part. Control of the part outline by Go/No Go gauge.
  • Control of the length of the part by one dial indicator point.
  • Control of the dimensions of the foglamp hole by a Go/No Go pin.

Checking fixture for foglamp trim with an aluminium base plate

  • Positionning of the left and right fixtures in vehicle position by an aluminium block adapted on the fixtures base plate
  • Simulation of the part clipping system by steel clips submitted to a chemical nickel treatment
  • Possibility to mount two versions of trims: with or without foglamp.
  • Simulation of the part vehicle environment by fixed blocks.
  • Control of the part shape by six dial indicator control points: outline and surface deformation.
  • 2D of the checking fixture.
  • 2D of the foglamp version of trim.

Description

As foglamp trims are part of the visible components of the car, its aspect and shape are of paramount importance. Consequently, the fixture controlling this type of part must be able to guarantee its dimensional conformity without damaging scraping it or tearing it, thus protecting its finishing.

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

In order to reduce the time to repay your fixture, think about using automated data acquisition solutions, which will help you reduce your measuring cycle time.  See CAPTOR-S presentation video to see an example of measurement time reduction on a checking fixture for a plastic part.
