FORCE ASSEMBLY FIXTURE
FIXTURE DESIGN & ADVANCED MANUFACTURING
Partnered with a client to shorten the assembly process of control valves while increasing accuracy and reliability.
Concept Development, Engineering Design & Prototyping
- Developed a novel mechanism
that eliminates the need to switch between two separate setups by using one set up to measure both force and displacement, saving the customer time
- Force is applied using a spring mechanism to provide precise manual force application
RESULT: JAKTOOL designed and manufactured a fixture for the assembly and testing of control valves.Two fixtures were delivered meeting all customer requirements.The deliverables successfully reduced assembly time and improved quality.
