Body in White (B.I.W.) refers to the welded sheet metal components which form the vehicles structure to which the other components will be assembled, i.e., engine, chassis, exterior and interior trim. In the Car Industry BIW is the common term used in Weld Shop and also it is Sheet Metal body before going to paint shop.
Magnus has started a PGD course in BIW Fixture Design which gives the insight to Study and understanding of process, Concept design, Create 3D-Modeling Types, Structures, Roofs, Panels, Pillars & Doors. The course explains further on the Fixtures, Grippers, Clamping Units, Locating Units, Damping Units & Pin Units.
The course also gives an exposure to the automotive industry standards, Design & Manufacturing methodologybriefly for the fresh Engineer to enter the industry with confidence. There will be software training on Cero for 3D Modeling, Assembly, Surface, BOM, 2D Drafting & Detailing. The training will be completed with a Project on 3D Modeling and BIW Fixture Design & Detailing
In automobile industry, automobile welding fixture is component important to auxiliary welding. The automobile body is welded by multiple complex sheet stamping parts and other auxiliary work piece. In the process, supporting role of welding fixture is an important step. In this paper, the fixture welding was designed and analyzed briefly.
Designing plastic parts is a complex task involving many factors that address a list of requirements of the application. "How is the part to be used?" "How does it fit to other parts in the assembly?" "What loads will it experience in use?" In addition to functional and structural issues, processing issues play a large role in the design of an injection molded plastic part.
How the molten plastic enters, fills, and cools within the cavity to form the part largely drives what form the features in that part must take. Adhering to some basic rules of injection molded part design will result in a part that, in addition to being easier to manufacture and assemble, will typically be much stronger in service.
Dividing a part into basic groups will help you to build your part in a logical manner while minimizing molding problems. As a part is developed, always keep in mind how the part is molded and what you can do to minimize stress.
CAD customization predominantly involves developing supporting tools for CAD software. The tools referred to as design automation software are used by our clients in their design and engineering offices to automate simple or complex design tasks.
The tools enable real-time design of custom products, be it for parts or complete product, thereby accelerating the time to market for our clients. Our competency encompasses development of automation tools for mechanical as well as electronic and electrical designs.
Although off-the-shelf automation tools are available, they require customization. Therefore, many of our clients have partnered with us to customize automation tools to suit their business requirements. We have extensive experience in developing automation tools equipped with model automation, parametric management, integration of iterative steps and design to analysis and back to design for multiple industries.
Across all major industries, market pressures and structural costs are requiring manufacturers to build more automation and increased flexibility into their production facilities. Individual plants need to increase the number of products they can build, while exceeding their current quality targets and optimizing their shop floor footprint. Manufacturers must rely, more than ever, on robotics and automation systems to boost production efficiency and flexibility.
With Tecnomatix robotics simulation and programming solutions, you can work in both data-managed and filebased environments for the development of robotic and automated production systems. These tools address multiple levels of robot simulation and workstation development, from single-robot stations to complete production lines and zones. Using collaborative tools, you can enhance communication and coordination among manufacturing disciplines, enabling smarter decision-making. This allows you to bring automation systems online much faster and with fewer errors.
RIM offer short term sheet metal press tool design course and this course which covers the sheet metal forming process and press tool design. The primary objective of this course is to address the issues that are most often poorly understood sheet metal forming failure and overlooked during press tool design and Manufacturing process.
This requires mechanical design of a press tool design and focuses more on the details that influence the formation of the sheet metal product, its quality, performance and productivity.
Sheet metals are generally related with cutting as well as forming operations. There are different types of metal forming operations are Bending, Shearing, Blanking, Punching and Stamping. The raw material for sheet metal manufacturing processes is the output of the rolling process.
Typically, sheets of metal are in the form of flat and rectangular sheets of standard size. If the sheets are thin and very long, they may be in the form of rolls. So, by using various press tool designs and dies the complex designs of sheet metals are achieved. Punching is the most cost-effective process of making holes in strip or sheet metal for average to high fabrication.
