Welding Fixtures

Tooling is the most important element of automated welding. The tooling on Bancroft machines can be supplied as simple manual tooling, or automated with part present sensors, interlocked clamps, and part eject. Each fixture is designed specifically for the part being welded with details intended to survive in the harsh environment of welding. Bronze details and guards are provided in high spatter areas. Water cooled details are also available.

Samples

Bancroft engineers use years of first-hand knowledge to help in the decision-making process.  We understand that many times customers need to approve samples to ensure the process is going to be successful.  Different prototypes can be created upon request to test the different designs and materials. For this, Bancroft has testing machines in house dedicated to producing samples.

The advantages for you:

  • The possibility of quick response time due to an in-house tool room.
  • Many universal fixtures in-house for testing.
  • Detailed test results.
