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.
