Stamping and Assembly of an Axle Assembly for the Lawn & Garden Industry
A manufacturer of lawn and garden equipment contacted Herd Manufacturing Inc. for fabrication of a front and rear axle assembly to be used in a lawn mower. The metal brackets of this axle assembly were stamped from C1008-1010 steel and assembled to a coined axle by robotic welding. A locating pin was also welded as part of this assembly. The bracket material was .075" thick and the rod diameter was .250". We finished the assembly with a powder coating. Throughout the manufacturing of this assembly we maintained tolerances as tight as ±.004". To assist our customer in managing their inventory with the 250,000 EAU order, we enacted a just-in-time delivery system, shipping off of a weekly pull system. This JIT delivery was made possible by the utilization of a well designed welding fixture system that was designed, developed and built by Herd Manufacturing.
