Exterior Assembly

Related to contact welding, this technique is used to weld larger parts, or parts that have a complex weld joint geometry.

  • Compliance welding
  • Penetrating & Non-penetrating welds
  • Internal welding
  • Robotic hot plate integration

High frequency sound waves (20 kHz and above) are used to melt the materials to be joined. Localized melting may be accomplished with designing an energy directing tip into the one of the parts being welded.

  • Multiple points with one horn
  • Quick cycle times
  • Machine handheld units
  • Robot handheld units

This is the process whereby a clip style fastener is attached to a sub-assembly component by means of a mechanical installation tool. The installed clip provides the attachment mechanism for joining components into a final assembly.

  • Free floating position compensating heads
  • Individual position adjustment
  • Quick cycle times
  • Compact designs

Machine designed to remove excess material at the injection point of an injection molded product.

  • Numerous materials
  • Innovative gate management
  • Saw, Nip, Shear and Cut
  • Fully adjustable

This process is used extensively to affix decorative components to automotive, heavy truck and recreational product bodies. The process involves the surface preparation and affixing of the components by means of glue or permanent tape.

  • Force control
  • Distance control
  • Multi Axis
  • Departed Axis
  • 6-7 Axis
  • Cartesian
  • Robotic machine integration
  • Positional compliance
  • High speed
  • Dust control
  • large parts
  • Small parts
  • Accurate Repeatability
  • Robotic machine integration
  • Positional compliance
  • High speed
  • Dust control

Common devices used to feed individual component parts for assembly on production lines. Mainly used when a randomly sorted bulk package of small components must be fed into another machine one-by-one, in a particular direction.
