Bonding Fixtures

We at Taylor Design Engineering, take pride in designing high quality fixtures within budget to a high industry standard, keeping the customer informed of progress at all times.

A datum strategy will be discussed and agreed pre-design so that each part is treated individually, located and clamped to ensure the integrity of the assembly is maintained.

We also pay attention to clearance for load and un-load, and we control the joining of the components with gates, latches, or swing over units so the adhesive is not wiped from the bond faces.

We have experience in heated and ambient cure adhesives, and design fixtures for either depending on the open and closed times of the adhesive. Will advise on the number of fixtures or processes to achieve the required volume of production. The fixtures we have designed have varied from manually operated with hand clamps, through to full PLC controlled automatic machines.

The fixtures will be designed to a high automotive standard or to your company’s own standard. Where possible we use our own standard parts, but would incorporate any parts you have in your company standards.

Once manufactured the fixtures are set to CAD using a Co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM) to a tolerance agreed and an inspection report issued. The Fixtures will be fully shim adjustable so any ‘bedding’ in of the panel locations or adjustments to overcome distortions can be easily achieved.
