Fixtures/Tooling Details

Motoman Robotics provided a custom fixture for each part group, plus a duplicate fixture for one group. Changeout details on the various fixtures allow welding of individual part numbers within a part group. Manual clamping is used with all fixtures. One fixture mounts on each side of the positioner. Fixture base plates are common and manually interchangeable. Based on the length of the rebar pieces, many assemblies are welded in an “inclined” configuration; one fixture is oriented in a vertical configuration.
