As lateral grilles only have an ornamental function on the front panel, their shape can vary strongly from one version of car to the other. This also means that their specificities and fixations will also be affected by their aesthetic design. All these considerations must be taken into account when producing checking fixtures for lateral grilles: these parts are usually clipped on the bumper, and conformed by the bumper environment. Consequently, a checking fixture for a lateral grille must reproduce the part environment and fixation system to ensure that its measurement will be done in conditions as close to the fitting on the car as possible.
Our checking fixtures are produced in aluminium, the components submitted to wear-and-tear are produced in steel. Tolerances for RPS (fixation points) and dial indicator points: ±0.05mm. Tolerances for simulation blocks: ±0.1mm.
Minimum documentation: dimensional report of your checking fixture, 2D assembly drawing, assembly CAD. Optional documentation: R&R report, user manual, stabilization certificate.
The number of dial indicator points on lateral grilles fixtures vary according to our customers’ requirements. Yet, their number can be of more than 5 dial indicators control points. To reduce the measurement time of these points by 70%, use CAPTOR-S data acquisition system; for an optimum automated data acquisition process, complete it with CAPTOR-C.
