  • Increasing Overall Equipment Efficiency
  • Cost saving by using resting / clamping blocks made of AMPCOLOY® Mylar on welding fixture
  • Increase in productivity per day by using resting / clamping blocks made of AMPCOLOY® Mylar

Weld Spatters: The biggest enemy in any welding environment. It creates problem like messy welding area, damages the body resting units & adds the fixture downtime. The maintenance teams have to go for additional coating on the units or spatter protection sprays.

Trials:

Trials were conducted for tier 1 supplier of 2 Wheeler manufacturer OEM in comparison with AMPCOLOY® Mylar Block against existing Mild Steel blackodised resting / clamping block.

First, we identified the pain area of the operator where heavy spatter deposition occurs on the welding fixture and huge time & rigorous cleaning activities are required.

We submitted AMPCOLOY® Mylar at an identified location in the fixture.

Technical parameters of the welding station on which trials were conducted:

  • Welding Station: Robotic MIG welding
  • Cycle Time per Job: 3 Minutes
  • 120 Jobs per shift
  • Welding Wire:
    • Wire Dia. – 1.2 mm
    • Wire Material – Er70C-6M
  • Welding Parameters:
    • 260 Ampere
    • 25 Volt
