Fixturing Systems

Fixturing systems provide secure mounting points for workpieces, supporting the workpiece in the manufacturing process so that each piece maintains conformity and can be interchanged with any other piece manufactured in the run. Most fixtures incorporate a solid component fixed to the floor of the work area or to the machine body, and are considered immobile relative to the machining bit. Fixturing systems can be generally designed to accommodate multiple uses, adjustable like clamps, or highly customized to accommodate specific workpiece designs.

Manufacturing vs. Fabrication: How to Make the Distinction

The Jig is Up: Flexible Part Positioning

With Video

Whether welding or handling, the flexibility of a six-axis robot arm is tough to beat. A single workcell with multiple robots can complete several processes with great reliability for the consistency needed to maintain 24/7 operations in an industrial climate that lacks skilled workers.

Using Adaptive Grippers as Flexible Fixturing For Robotic Welding

With Video

Using a traditional jig for every type of piece and assembly is complicated and expensive when welding small volumes or high mixes of parts. Why not use a robot with an adaptive gripper to feed a welding robot? This could replace most of the templates currently used by adapting to any part size and shape and holding them firmly while welding.
