Clamp-and-center unit MCP 80

The fact that a large number of variants are produced in a single plant results in an increasing number of tools and fixtures that have to be changed with short set-up times. Robust and at the same time precise clamp-and-center systems are a decisive factor for the availability of these change mechanisms.

Pin clamp with additional pin retracting unit

Pin clamps are a common means to position the entire underbody assembly in the geo-station. For higher precision, these stations include up to eight clamping points to position the individual assemblies. When it comes to lifting the complete assembly, however, this is unfavourable because any warped parts may result in damaging the entire component.

AUTOMATION AUTONOM Experts agree that autonomous cars are what the future holds in store for us. Here, the question is no longer “whether” they will materialize, but rather “when”.

c³ - Clever Clamp Calculator

The Clever Clamp Calculator – or c³ – is a tool that assists design engineers in finding the right system design.
As a matter of fact, c³ includes three tools. Tool One and Two help you select the right pin retractor and clamp sizes in relation to the component, clamping task, etc.


Toggle-joint clamp as a “motor“ for moving, lifting, rotating …

The toggle-joint clamp has become a universal tool in body-in-white assembly lines. So why not use this standard as a drive for other functions in body-in-white assembly?

APM Conveying Technology

We have heard from some customers that there is a little uncertainty with regard to the succession to the Spanish company specializing in conveying technology AUTOMATISMOS PROYECTOS Y MONTAJES, S.A., or APM.


Spot weld guns – Simple and sturdy

Based on the standard C-frame systems of TÜNKERS Forming Technology, HELU now offers a modular spot weld gun.


Will the 7th axis replace the accumulating conveyor?

To uncouple the individual manufacturing lines, buffer stations are indispensable in the body-in-white assembly plant layout. Some new systems are based on a concept where a robot on a 7th axis puts the components into a “shelf system“ in order to convey them, when required, to the subsequent cell.


Punching clamps

Punching the four holes for the license plate into the trunk lid – this was the task presented to us by a renowned German OEM.
