Hardpoint Measuring System With Adjustable Test Rig
Designed a Hard Point Measuring System with Adjustable Test Rig which can adjust to the inaccuracies measured by the Hard Point Measuring System for Gestamp.
Adjustable Test Rig had three attachment points with rigid frame capable of taking about 100 kN.
Each attachment point had 4 degrees of freedom adjustments i.e. x-axis/y-axis/z-axis/rotation about one of the axes.
The assembly was >1 meter tall with an adjustment accuracy of <1mm.
The Hard Point Measuring System was designed to measure inaccuracies down to ± 0.1mm.
The assembly was tested in ANSYS for possible deformations and strength and optimised to suit the application.
The assembly was designed such that it could be cheaply manufactured. (Flame cut - Fabrication - Machining)
Introducing Hard Point Measuring System with Adjustable Test Rig, designed specifically for Gestamp to fatigue test automotive components. This system can adjust to any inaccuracies measured by the Hard Point Measuring System, allowing Gestamp to conduct fatigue tests on the adjustable test rig. Additionally, a trade study was performed to 3D scan parts for further testing and analysis.
