Workholding & Fixturing Techniques for Production Engineers - IMTMA/P015

Programme Background

Workholding devices and fixtures are used on CNC machines to reduce idle time and thereby reduce cost. Their optimum use not only improves productivity but eliminates quality defects. Often problems related to poor quality and productivity are a direct consequence of poor fixturing in terms of its choice or design. Reduction in set-up change is a challenge most manufacturers face and this is directly related to quality of fixturing.

Focus Areas
  • Basics of fixture design
  • Trends in fixturing
  • Group discussions and exercises on fixture design, problem solving & trouble shooting
  • Design of Pneumatic / Hydraulic fixtures for volume production
  • Single Minute Exchange of Die (SMED)
  • Lead time reduction using standard / modular fixture elements
  • Group presentations
