- Moulding loaded through light guard
- Automatic hole punching through painted and lacquered bumper mouldings
- Waste material collection
- Configurable for different variants
TQC have designed and manufactured a number of bumper punch systems varying in complexity.
Generally, bumpers are manually loaded and unloaded through a light guard and then automatically punched.
Any waste material is gathered via chutes feeding bins outside the guarded areas. The punches are actuated using hydraulics or pneumatics or a combination of both.
TQC have punched a variety of holes including:
- Fog Light Holes
- PDC Holes
- Body Fixing Holes
- Numberplate Plinth Holes
Punching operations can be combined with manual or automated assembly operation within a single machine.
A typical example would be the assembly of a bumper requires the punching of holes for PDC sensors following by the fitting and checking of associated brackets and sensors
TQC can also supply fixtures for bumper assembly and handling for other areas with the production system.
