In the machining process, as the tool cuts off the unnecessary material from the workpiece, a cutting force will be generated on the workpiece. To resist the cutting force and allow the cutting process to be completed, the workpiece must be firmly clamped on the machine tool. The device that positions and clamps the workpiece is called a fixture. The device that holds and guides the cutting tool is called a jig.
Application of Fixture is a processing device used to fasten the workpiece quickly during processing, so that the machine tool, the tool, and the workpiece maintain the correct relative position. Tooling and fixtures are an indispensable part of machining. Driven by the development of machine tool technology in the direction of high speed, high efficiency, precision, compounding, intelligence, and environmental protection, fixture technology is moving towards high-precision, high-efficiency, modular, combination, universal, economic direction.
