Boom Tack Welding Fixture  
Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Tack welding fixture was designed to handle three different booms with no tooling changeover.  Subassemblies are positioned and clamped on the fixture before a welder tacks components in place.  After the fixture was assembled at our facility a complete laser inspection was done to certify critical positions are held to 0.006".

Hydraulic Clamping Boom Tack Welding Fixture

Due to the extreme size and weight of the boom parts, hydraulic cylinders were used to push and clamp pieces together.

Frame Tack Welding Fixture  
Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Tack welding fixture was designed to handle three different frames with no tooling changeover.  Individual plates are positioned and clamped on the fixture before a welder tacks components in place.  After the fixture was assembled at our facility a complete laser inspection was done to certify critical positions are held to 0.006".

Modular Table Weld Fixture  
Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Modular fixture was designed with a four section table and has the capability of adding sections as required.  A pattern of mounting holes in the table sections allow tooling components to be mounted anywhere along the length of the table.  Tooling components were designed to accommodate a large range of parts, providing adaptability for future products.

Lay-on Tack Welding Fixture  
Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Tack welding fixture designed to handle two different booms with no tooling changeover.  The fixture locates the nose weldment and the cylinder attach plates relative to the end of the boom.  After the fixture was assembled at our facility a complete laser inspection was done to certify critical positions are held to 0.006".

Frame Rollover Welding Fixture  
Click to Enlarge Fixture designed to hold a lift frame during final weld operation.  Frame can be rotated then locked into positions at 90 increments allowing the operator to always perform horizontal welds.  Weights were calculated to place the center of gravity so that rotating the part is safe and easy.
