Hood Hinge Set and Gauging Machine
This general accessory testing machine performs a hood hinge “stop” adjustment, closes the hinge and then and then performs a gauging operation at two points to verify closing height and angle. The machine performs the operation on the set of left and right hinges at the same time. A shim insertion fixture inserts a shim the same thickness as a plastic insulator to compensate for it’s later installation. The hingle closes on this shim and a closed measurement is taken in to places to verify closing position and to calculate closed angle. The hinge open and closing effort is also verified with the actuation fixture in case a rivet has been peened too tightly.
