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.
