Theoretic Analysis of Factor to Affect Door Closing Force by Positioning Error of Assembly Fixture 2002-01-0769

In order to analyze positioning errors of assembly fixture of car SANTANA 2000, a 3D CAD model of fixture is built in this paper. Six typical deviation models are defined on the basis of six points positioning principle for fixture. The assembly gap distribution between door and side frame is analyzed and the influence of different deviation patterns on assembly gap is studied, and the effect of assembly gaps on door closing force is evaluated meanwhile. The results show that positioning errors of door assembly fixture is one of the most important factors to affect the door closing force.
