Cut Production Time with Frame Railing Fixtures for Robotic and Manual Welding

Frame welding fixtures are one of the best products to use for general purpose welding. They are extremely versatile which makes it very easy to do adjustments on the fly. They give you the option to promptly adjust and weld all sides the length and width of different frames in rectangular allocation. This plus the option to use these fixtures with either manual or robotic welding results in much lower production times than other methods.

Forster America’s Frame Railing Fixtures include:

  • Mechanical clamping elements with spindle-compression that is located in close proximity to the weld joint. These allow certain irregularities in the joint to be sensitively compensated
  • A clamping corner on the left target that builds the 0-point of the x- and y-axis.
  • The ability to swivel about ca. 225° after the clamping of the components and the frames can be welded overleaf.

There are three types of frame welding fixtures being offered by Forster America. They include:
