A fixture is a work-holding or support device used in the manufacturing industry. Fixtures are used to securely locate (position in a specific location or orientation) and support the work, ensuring that all parts produced using the fixture will maintain conformity and interchangeability.
Assembly fixtures are required for many applications – usually to restrain detail parts to ensure repeatability and consistency of build.
If you want to produce interchangeable parts, you will need to use a jig, fixture, or both depending on the operation. Human error is vastly limited, so components can be machined quickly with high levels of accuracy, which reduces costs.
Here at Cube Precision Engineering we do much more than Assembly fixtures. Our vast experience in the automotive, aerospace & defence and commercial sectors allows us to create, design and build a whole range of different types of tooling and fixtures to suit you. Our site in the West Midlands is at the forefront of press tool manufacturing and sub contract machining within the UK manufacturing sector.
