Machining Jigs & Fixtures

Machining jigs & fixtures are a generic term for the jigs used to fix workpieces onto machine tools in cutting work. High-precision positioning and fixing become repeatable by using proper machining jigs. Machining jigs include general-purpose types that can be used for machining multiple products, and dedicated jigs that are developed and produced specifically for machining a particular product. In milling machining, jig and fixture bases, vise, clamping parts (screws and other metal fasteners) and positioning parts are combined in designing of workpiece retention; in lathe machining, lathe chucks, soft jaws, hard jaws and rotating centers are used to hold workpieces. Jig replacement systems are a machining jig that can efficiently perform positioning and workpiece-holding with one unit, while shortening the preparation time and improving machining precision. The quality of jigs brings about differences in product quality and work efficiency.
