Fixture Design and Build
When it comes to production welding or welding automation, it is easy to argue that fixturing is the most important aspect of any successful system. All good welding fixtures allow for proper part fit-up and are easy to use, but fixtures can also increase quality by reducing burn-through and stress cracks. MESH designs and builds fixturing for manual to fully automated welding processes. We also build fixtures for a variety of processes including grinding and finishing. MESH specializes in fixtures that are heavy duty yet are easy to maintain. Our fixtures are operator friendly and provide precise part fit-up or work holding. Whether you want to improve a basic manual welding process or need advanced fixturing for automation, MESH is a great source for your fixturing needs.
MESH Solutions for Fixturing
Having good fixturing to produce parts often reduces the set-up time as much as 50%. This is not to mention increase the quality of finished parts and decreasing re-work, an expensive, frustrating and time-consuming task. MESH has years of fixture experience, not only for welding, but other processes such as grinding as well.
MESH’s solutions are highly reliable, flexible and durable. MESH focuses on making loading and unloading as easy and ergonomic as possible.
MESH Automation Solutions
MESH builds fixtures for any part from small, fragile glass medical vials up to enormous castings. MESH can accommodate a variety of work holding including manual, pneumatic, magnetic, hydraulic or servo work-holding into fixturing. Additionally, MESH can accommodate a variety of sensors. Often components that make contact with the part are made of hardened steel for longevity, or a softer material to prevent any damage. MESH also have extensive experience with coatings and can recommend a fixture coating that will reduce spatter build up and increase fixture longevity.
Our fixturing solutions focus on innovated, but proven designs. We factor in aspects like the process being used on the fixture, current quality issues, part size, material type, and the cost savings with labor and rework to develop a fixture that will get your company a decent ROI.
All MESH solutions are tailored for manufacturing processes that require production and quality. All solutions will be engineered to be operated 24/7/365. Our solutions will be rugged, low maintenance and most importantly, intuitive and easy for the operator to use.
While every business has its own needs, MESH Automation recognizes basic engineering solutions that often work across the board for different industries. For this reason our highly experienced team of engineers has developed a number of pre-engineered solutions that meet incredibly varied needs, from manual operations to automated robotics. So, instead of starting totally from scratch, many of our customers are able to get going with high-tech equipment that has already been tested and is ready to go.
