Body in White

Simpro is leader in finding and concretizing solutions for manufacturing systems for the assembly and welding of body sheet-metal parts. Moreover, Simpro manufactures clinching and hemming fixtures for moving units as well as control gauges for the geometrical check of the assemblies.

The lines, either manual or automatic, are designed in close co-operation with the customer in order to deliver a product perfectly fulfilling his production requirements and expectations. These systems are turnkey supplied to the customer and, where required, a full customer service including a 24-hour assistance in case of failure, personnel training and periodic maintenance will be provided.

These systems and fixtures are manufactured in strict compliance with the regulations in force in the country where they are installed.

 Manual Spot Welding

Spot welding should be preferred to arc welding owing to the reduced stress to which the body parts are subject as well as to the lower production costs.

In this specific case, this welding method can be applied by using a weld gun ― at which ends two electrodes are placed ― that, after gripping the parts to be coupled, welds them in one spot without any weld material.

Due to the absence of robotized structures, the operator can easily reach the car body to weld even in the most inaccessible areas.

Each system is designed in compliance with the most stringent safety and reliability standards so as to totally safeguard the health of the involved personnel.

Automatic Spot Welding

Spot welding is meant as a method for coupling metal parts by means of a weld gun ― at which ends two electrodes are placed ― that, after gripping the parts to be coupled, welds them in one spot without any weld material.

Spot welding should be preferred to arc welding owing to the reduced stress to which the body parts are subject as well as to the lower production costs.

The process is fully automatic, except for loading and unloading the parts to be coupled, operations being carried out by a duly trained operator. Each movement is controlled through a specific software and tested prior to try-out or production stages. After loading the part, the operator will start the working cycle from a pushbutton panel designed according to the ergonomic rules in full compliance with the most stringent safety and reliability standards.

Manual Arc Welding

Arc welding is defined as a method for coupling metal parts by melting weld material, which is heated and brought to the required temperature by means of a welding torch. This specific process, owing to a large ease of handling, permits to get extremely resistant welds perfectly shaped to the parts to be coupled. In so doing, the product is guaranteed to be highly resistant and reliable over time even in those body sections subject to an intensive stress.

Due to the absence of robotized structures, the operator can easily reach the car body to weld even in the most inaccessible areas requiring a highly precise welding process.

Laser Welding

Laser welding is defined as a method for coupling metal parts by melting weld material, which is heated and brought to the required temperature by means of a laser beam. This method permits a highly precise, thin and deep welding due to the concentration of the produced heating.

As regards our systems, this is a fully automatic process, except for loading and unloading the parts to be coupled, operations being carried out by a duly trained operator.
