This jig was designed to assist our client during their assembly process. Our client is the world leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment. This particular jig will be used to secure a manifold in place, whilst hoses will be fitted by the operator. Due to this, a key success factor for this project, was to ensure the hoses are help a specific position so it could be fit on the final position.
The client specified; the jig must be able to withstand a torque of 110Nm during assembly operations. The jig also needs to keep the elbows on the desired position with an accuracy of +/- 1 degree. To ensure the position of the manifold is achieve, Acres manufactured 6 bespoke Nylon blocks. The clamping was assisted by using high quality toggle clamps with an integrated safety level, each clamp was tested to ensure it can withstand 300Kg of force. The product was powder coated to the clients requested colour and delivered within the lead time specified. Acres also spent time on-site during delivery to test the jig and determine if any minor adjustments would be required. Acres Engineering are experts are designing and manufacturing production support equipment such as Jigs, enhancing Lean manufacturing within a production environment.
