DAF Trucks NV
TFT developed and produced two welding jigs for DAF Trucks NV. These jigs are used when welding the bumper sub-frames for the company's trucks. The bumper sub-frame is welded in two phases.
Accuracy of the final product and maintaining consistent welding quality were the main requirements for each welding jig. Shims are used at critical tolerance positions in each welding jig to compensate for distortion of the end-product during welding. These shims allow adjustment during set-up trials.
