Alignment and positioning of jobs are a fundamental part of nearly all research and manufacturing processes. Increasing focus on ‘Nano-scale engineering’ has is building the pressure on engineers to mull over the types of alignment devices that help streamline new and emerging applications.
Fixtures are devices that determine the fixed orientation and location of a part though fixed geometry. In welding, their application lies in the positioning of components accurately, holding them rigidly in place and preventing dislocation and movement during the welding process. The use of Fixtures in welding improves part accuracy while enabling greater productivity. Fixtures also enhance fitting tolerance in the final product as well as ensures improved quality at a lower production cost.
Furthermore, Assembly Fixtures eliminate the need for any temporary welds to the work piece in the production of a satisfactory fit up, that too at a faster pace.
Key advantages of Assembly and Welding Fixtures include:
