CHALLENGE

The Customer was faced with an assembly request that required positioning of a product to a specific position prior to other parts being assembled. This assembly method was previously completed manually. As a result, the customer was faced with ergonomic issues due to manually having to actuate a pivot mechanism that holds some parts in place. In addition, they have been challenged with limited space on the fixture for other products.

SOLUTION

A model 331 pull action clamp was customized so that it actuates a pivot mechanism that correctly and consistently positions the product during assembly and holds the parts in place as others are installed.

RESULTS

 

Changing to the customized 331 clamp has resulted in a 20% increase in productivity and eliminated ergonomic issues.
