In 2002, we build a fit and tack welding fixture for a company that builds baggage conveyors for commercial airlines’ ground support facilities. In 2018, they called – not with a problem, but with an opportunity. They needed a next generation model to complement their conveyor offerings. We had all of the original design specs, so all we needed was the modifications necessary to meet the updated conveyor welding fixture design. With the new specs in hand, we modified the 16-year-old fixture to build a new model. We also took the opportunity to replace a few small parts on the original fixture that showed some wear and tear. Today the customer is still building its original model with the 2002 fixture, along with the next gen conveyor using its modified version.
We take great pride in designing simple, functional fixtures that will stand the test of time.
