Efficient and Effective Production Support with 3D Printed Jigs and Fixtures

Published By: 3D Systems     Published Date: May 15, 2019
Jigs and fixtures offer manufacturers a reliable process for delivering accurate, high-quality outcomes, whether for a specific part or feature, or for consistency across multiples of parts. Although the methodologies and materials for producing jigs and fixtures have evolved beyond the conventional metal tooling of years past, their position as a manufacturing staple remains constant due to the benefits they offer. This eBook discusses the use of additive manufacturing (AM) for jig and fixture applications, and demonstrates how production support can be improved in terms of speed, cost and functionality. The applications included within this eBook offer a mere glimpse at what is possible with AM for production support. The examples chosen illustrate opportunities for applying design principles and technology capabilities that are transferable across a wide range of applications.

Jigs & Fixtures on the Factory Floor

Published By: Stratasys EMEA     Published Date: Feb 21, 2019
Factory production lines know the right jig or fixture speeds production, which increases productivity. But thatís just the beginning. Well-designed tools are more ergonomic, offering both increased worker safety and productivity, as well as cost savings. Traditional machining produces heavy, costly, multi-piece tools that become an even greater liability as repetitive motion injuries erode line productivity with worker disability. Redesign means even more protracted timelines for machined parts. While essential to efficiency, accuracy and safety, jigs and fixtures are often considered a necessary evil in the overall production process. Costly, protracted timelines for machined jigs and fixtures are the culprit here, especially for the often complex designs necessary to meet unique part needs. This, along with certain complex designs that simply cannot be manufactured using traditional methods are a reality on the production floor. But there is a better way. 3D printed jigs and fixture

FDM for Jigs and Fixtures

Published By: Stratasys     Published Date: Sep 11, 2019
FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) provides a fast and accurate method of producing jigs and fixtures. FDM is an additive manufacturing process that builds plastic parts layer-by-layer using data from computer-aided design (CAD) files. By using FDM, the traditional fabrication process is substantially simplified; tool-making becomes less expensive and time consuming. As a result, manufacturers realize immediate improvements in productivity, efficiency and quality. Find out how the Oreck Corporation, a well-respected manufacturer of vacuum cleaners and other cleaning appliances, realized immediate savings in cost, production time and inspection time by implementing FDM for its fixtures.

Direct Digital Manufacturing: Impact and Opportunity Part 4 - Jigs & Fixtures

Published By: RedEye On Demand     Published Date: Apr 09, 2009
Direct digital manufacturing, otherwise known as rapid manufacturing, is a process that employs additive fabrication technology (aka rapid prototyping) to produce end-use items. Directly from CAD data, components are manufactured without molding, casting or machining. The impact of direct digital manufacturing is far-reaching, and the opportunities and advantages are extensive. This is why direct digital manufacturing is heralded as the next industrial revolution.
