Title: (DE) INFRAROTGESCHWEISSTE AUSSENPLATTENANORDNUNG UND VERFAHREN ZUR HERSTELLUNG DAVON
(EN) INFRARED WELDED EXTERIOR PANEL ASSEMBLY AND PROCESS OF MAKING SAME
(FR) ENSEMBLE DE PANNEAU EXTÉRIEUR SOUDÉ PAR INFRAROUGE ET SON PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION
Abstract:
(EN) An exterior body panel assembly having a Class A painted surface, mold-in color or non-Class A surface, and process of infrared welding components of the assembly. Panels of the assembly are placed on a nesting structure and the inside half of the structures are brought together with the other for a fit check. Panels are separated and an infrared heating fixture then heats the various areas to be heated on the panels. The areas on the panels are heated depending on the thicknesses of the parts at each area and surface geometries to be welded. The parts are immediately clamped back together under pressure for joining and cooling of the joined surfaces in the clamped arrangement.
(FR) Ensemble de panneau de corps extérieur présentant une surface peinte de classe A, une couleur moulée ou une surface non de Classe A, et procédé de soudage par infrarouge des composants de l'ensemble. Les panneaux de l'ensemble sont placés sur une structure d'emboîtement et la moitié intérieure des structures est réunie à l'autre pour une vérification d'ajustement. Les panneaux sont séparés et un dispositif de chauffage par infrarouge chauffe ensuite les différentes zones à chauffer sur les panneaux. Les zones sur les panneaux sont chauffées en fonction de l'épaisseur des pièces à chaque zone et des géométries des surfaces à souder. Les pièces sont immédiatement serrées ensemble sous pression pour réunir et refroidir les surfaces réunies dans l'agencement de serrage.
