Healamps and rearlamps are components particularly difficult to check: apart from their dimensional conformity, they must be able to stand the climate and vibration conditions they will exposed to during the car useful life. Consequently, we propose to our customers three types of fixtures for these parts: complete checking fixtures – for lamps assemblies -, test fixtures – to be used on test laboratories -, and sub-assemblies checking fixtures – for the lamps components.
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.
Headlamps and rearlamps fixture usually have a number of dial indicator points ranging between 6 to 12 points, which implies a relatively long cycle time. Using CAPTOR-S for this kind of fixtures helps reducing the risk of faulty measurements, the cycle time, and thus helps repaying on a shorter term the checking fixture.

Sub-assemblies checking fixtures
A series of checking fixtures must be produced to submit head and rearlamps to specific tests simulating their conditions of use during the car useful life. The list bellow presents the most common ones:
