WDSI has worked hand and hand with OEMs to develop weld, machining and assembly fixtures for new and existing product lines. If you need a simple lay-on/apply tool or are developing a complete robotic weld cell we have the solution.

Cylinder Assembly and Test Station

This machine is designed to build, pressure test, cycle and clean hydraulic cylinders.  The piston is assembled onto the rod on the center section of the table.  The rod is assembled into the cylinder on either side of the table.  The one side of the table will be in the up position doing the pressure checks and cleaning cycles, while another cylinder is being built on the opposite side of the table.  The station is designed to handle a wide range of cylinder types and lengths with minimum tooling changeover (no tools required).

Dump Trailers

WDSI has been involved with several trailer manufactures in various roles.  We reverse engineer, create new design and detail projects, as well as FEA and cost analysis.  We have worked on single and tandem axle trailers with solid or dump beds and air bag lowered beds on trailers.

Lay-on Tack Welding Fixture

The tack welding fixture is designed to handle two different booms with no tooling changeover.  The fixture locates the nose weldment, and the cylinder attach plates relative to the end of the boom within +/-.006".  After fixture was assembled at our facility, a complete laser inspection is done to certify critical positions. There is no tooling change-over.  The fixture locates the nose weldment, and the cylinder attach plates relative to the end of the boom within +/-.006".
