IMTMA Training Centre

Design of Workholding and Fixturing

Date : 15 to 16 October, 2019

@ Plot No. 249 F, Phase IV, Udyog Vihar, Sector 18, Gurgaon


Design of workholding & fixturing 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 workholding & fixturing differentiates excellent organizations.
Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a 2 day seminar on
Design of Workholding & Fixturing on 15-16 October 2019 at Gurgaon.

Focus Areas

• Various types of Workholding fixtures
• Key factors & Technical features of workholding fixtures
• Design of basic elements of a fixtures
• Elements for Hydraulic / Pneumatic fixtures
• Design consideration for Manual, Hydraulic & Pneumatic fixtures
• Safety features & cost control while designing a fixture & its elements
• Trouble shooting of the fixtures to achieve desired quality of component
• Group Excercises in concept development of fixtures
