Design of Fixtures for Machining Applications - A practical approach

Date : 8 to 12 February, 2021

Time : 1000 Hrs to 1300 Hrs


The course is structured with introduction to Fixture Design basics to final design. Design of fixture is key to effective utilization of machine tools. Basics of fixture design if not implemented correctly results in poor productivity & quality problems. Set-up time and cycle time reduction, increased accuracy on components, deskilling the job setting operation are the obvious advantages of a good fixture. Competence in right fixture differentiates excellent organizations.

A complete process of fixture design will be carried out from concept to finish design. Pre-design activities like design input, conceptualization, process planning, accuracy consideration, cycle time estimation, POKAYOKE, 3D modelling of parts and assembly, using popular design CAD tools and preparing the final manufacturing drawings. Design for Accuracy, Manufacturing and Assembly will be addressed during the course. It will be highly interactive and hands on training session and covers entire 360° view on all types of fixture design aspects.

Keeping this in view, IMTMA is organizing an online training on Fixturing for machining applications.
