Development of Machining fixtures - A practical Workshop with project

Date : 15 to 19 November, 2021

Time : 0940 Hrs to 1300 Hrs


The course is designed with the intent of bringing greater insight into fixtures and their application across all manufacturing processes. Comprehensive learning on fixtures for machining, welding, inspection, and assembly is the main focus of the programme. Machining fixtures are most complex in nature due to customer’s stringent requirements from the part accuracy (both dimensional and geometrical) and productivity point of view. 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 the right fixture differentiates excellent organizations.

Complete fundamentals and the process of fixture design are described from concept to final design in the programme. Pre-design activities like design input, conceptualization, process planning, accuracy consideration, cycle time estimation, POKAYOKE, 3D modeling of parts and assembly are demonstrated systematically with case studies. It will be highly interactive and covers an entire 360° view of all fixtures.

Keeping this in view, IMTMA is organizing an online training on the Development of Machining fixtures - A practical Workshop with the project.

Special Offer: Participants will be provided FREE ACCESS to the IMTMA E'learning course on "GD&T" towards continual learning and upskilling. Access will be valid from 15 Nov to 24 Nov 2021.
