Clamp for Automotive Carpet Molding - Case Study

Automotive Carpet Molding - A workholding clamp is used on an automotive carpet transfer line.The clamp grasps the carpet after which a horizontal motion moves the carpet to the next workstation. Inadequate Jaw Travel Caused Excessive Scrap - An automotive interiors industry customer had been using a competitor’s clamp that was limited in how far the jaws could open.The contour of the end of the molded carpet required a larger than normal clamp opening for the material to fit within the jaws. In the application, if the clamp does not open far enough to adequately grip the carpet, the carpet jams on the tooling and drops to the floor. Any carpet that is dropped must be scrapped.
