Assembly, Welding & Inspection Fixtures - Design and Manufacturing - IMTMA/MF010

Programme Background

Fixtures are used in almost all the segments of the engineering industry and are considered to be critical for achieving optimum quality and productivity of various products. Any shortcomings in the design and manufacture of these fixtures have a direct negative impact on the assemblies manufactured.

A well designed and manufactured fixture is the result of a systematic approach which takes into consideration the respective processes and the various design and manufacturing challenges.
