Assembly fixture and method for fabricating grids

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #5400373.

Disclosed is an assembly fixture and method useful for the assembly and fabrication of metal grids such as used to support and position the fissionable fuel rods of a nuclear fuel assembly. The grid assembly fixture uses a grid assembly plate (1) and a plurality of toggle clamp assemblies (9) and clamping pads (12) attached thereto to temporarily hold the four peripheral or border grid straps (7) in proper position and alignment against the four sides of the grid assembly plate (1). A strap retention assembly (13) is then placed around the four peripheral or border grid straps (7) to hold them in proper position and alignment during the further fabrication and welding of the grid straps (7).
