Fixtures/Tooling Details

Motoman Robotics provided two final weld fixtures, each consisting of one final assembly fixture and one collector subassembly fixture. Fixtures accommodate all three part models, as well as the lower collector stamping and sensor plug. Detail change-out is minimal (<10 minutes) and does not require hand tools. Fixtures are pneumatically clamped and include part-present and clamp-open/closed sensors.
