Title
(EN) FLEXIBLE WELDING APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE SOUDAGE SOUPLE
Abstract
(EN)
A welding fixture includes a flexible substrate, which is sufficiently flexible to be reconfigurable between a planar configuration and a folded or rolled compact configuration and is dimensioned to support a plurality of frame members to form a structural frame for a recreational vehicle (RV). The welding fixture further includes a plurality of guide surfaces mounted to the flexible substrate, which are arranged on the flexible substrate to align the frame members in a predefined arrangement with a plurality of weld points and to align the frame members in the predefined arrangement while being welded together at the weld points.
(FR)
Cette invention concerne un appareil de soudage, comprenant un substrat souple, qui est suffisamment souple pour être reconfigurable entre une configuration plane et une configuration compacte pliée ou enroulée et est dimensionné pour supporter une pluralité d'éléments de cadre de sorte à former un cadre structural pour un véhicule de plaisance (RV). L'appareil de soudage comprend en outre une pluralité de surfaces de guidage montées sur le substrat souple, qui sont disposées sur le substrat souple pour aligner les éléments de cadre dans un agencement prédéfini avec une pluralité de points de soudure et pour aligner les éléments de cadre dans l'agencement prédéfini pendant qu'ils sont soudés les uns aux autres sur les points de soudure.
