Ford Brazil – Eco-Sport MY17 (B515) Introduction

Ford are also looking to introduce the Eco Sport into Brazil and so they have requested for CK to provide tooling in which to accommodate this introduction.

Ford has requested for CK top design and manufacture new 100 off New Types of Slave Tools/Settable Tools and 20 pairs of Bolster Support for their current Front Decking Pallets and 21 brand new Rear Decking Pallets.

The Slave Tools/Settable Tools will be based on CK standard designs, and the new bolster will include a slide rail.

New Bolster Support

When designing the new Rear Decking Fixture for Brazil, CK’s designers needed to ensure that the new design could also accommodate for the builds of the current Eco Sport vehicle, the Ford Figo and now the new Eco Sport (MY17).

The new design also had to incorporate the following pallet characteristics;

  • The pallet will be designed to integrate with the existing Camacari decking tools.
  • All components on the tooling will be colour coded as required to ensure that the operator can configure the tooling.
  • The rear axle tooling will have built in float to assist the operator with decking the rear axle into the body bracket. This will be based on the concept CK has previously supplied into Ford Venezuela.

Ford Venezuela currently builds the new B515 and so CK designers will aim to use similar supports/design of the pallet to that of the Ford Venezuela Rear Decking Pallet.
