Why Total Metal Products?
Total Metal Products (TMP) have been designing, producing, servicing and installing welding jigs for over 10 years. As a sector leading machine design and tool making company, we deliver high quality welding jig solutions across multiple industries and business sizes.
Welding Jig Solutions
Each of our welding jig solutions are designed ergonomically to ensure the workplace fits the needs of the worker, rather than making the worker adjust to the workplace.
TMP’s welding jigs can be operated manually or designed to integrate with your automation solutions. TMP have an extensive knowledge of and experience in providing robotic automation welding solutions.
We design and deliver a full range of welding jig solutions from flat surface jigs through to sophisticated modular welding tables, which can include lift and tilt systems.
TMP can supply and integrate workpiece positioners like turn-tilt modular welding tables for both manual and robotic welding operations. We have many different designs which can accommodate differing workpieces across a broad range of weights and sizes. For heavier / larger requirements we can provide systems which can be adjusted hydraulically.
Each of our welding jigs is designed and manufactured in-house by our dedicated teams. Our designers, project management and production engineers work together to design and produce the most effective welding jig which meets your specification and the requirements of your business. Our solutions are always delivered on time and on budget.
Welding Jigs and Fixtures
Our welding jigs and fixtures are designed to minimise the effects of weld spatter, increasing your uptime.
Weld spatter can cause problems on production where it builds up on surfaces which prevents positive part location, resulting in out of tolerance production and material / time wastage
Our range of innovative jigs and welding fixtures improve the quality and consistency of workmanship within your finished product, reducing production time and ultimately reducing your costs and improving the occupational welfare of your workforce.
If you have a requirement for prototype, low volume or end-of-life manufacturing we can provide a solution via our group partner company TMP Manufacturing.
TMP Manufacturing is able to produce your low volume requirements, with production to schedule, management of your raw material supply chain, finished product storage and onward delivery to your customer.
What is a Welding Jig?
A welding jig is a device which that keeps the workpiece to be welded stable when presented with the following: pressure, heat, motion, and force.
Welding workpieces will keep parts together and stable in grips and clamps. The workpiece that is being welded is then located by the jig and is then supported by it whilst the welding is carried out.
Regardless of whether the welding process is to be conducted manually, partially automated, or fully roboticized, the jig moves the workpiece while the welding tool remains stationary.
Each welding jig is specially designed to suit your welding operation and the tolerances can be controlled by designing the welding jig to suit the bespoke requirements of the workpiece welding process.
At TMP, we design and manufacture a variety of jigs and fixtures to your own unique specifications. Precision engineered welding jigs, improve the efficiency of your manufacturing operation by maintaining a consistent end product quality.
TMP can produce a broad range of toolmaking solutions.
