Ka Ching Chan has written: 'Development of a modular programmable fixturing system for assembly'.   A genetic algorithm was presented for selection and optimization in transforming dedicated fixturing systems into modular fixturing systems. The optimization problem considers the cost involved in using a set of modules to obtain a number of modular assemblies that could substitute a set of dedicated structures to satisfy fixturing needs.

They enable assemblers to bolt together framing components to tailor workstations and machines to specific processes or floor space requirements. Engineers can reconfigure assembly lines quickly and easily while minimizing .

All systems are designed & manufactured in our clean, state of the art facility on modern CNC equipment to the industry’s most stringent quality control. All software (& machine firmware) is written by us as well. O sq ft is dedicated to research / development & high tech assembly. The systems feature time proven. Flexible fixturing technology involves employing a single fixturing system to hold workpieces of various shapes and sizes within a family. Research in flexible fixturing has generally been limited to the automated design of modular fixture layouts. Identification and development of the formulation for the design of hardware which generally.

AbstractIn the development of a modular fixture design system, it is essential to have a modular fixture element database that can be integrated with a CAD system, in addition to the other consider Cited by: A Modular Programmable Fixturing System Article (PDF Available) in Journal of Manufacturing Science and Engineering (1) December.

Modular Fixturing Paperback – January 1, by Edward G. Hoffman (Author) See all formats and editions Hide other formats and editionsAuthor: Edward G. Hoffman. This paper presents the first phase of our ongoing development of a computer numerical control (CNC) modular fixture involving the machine design of a standard multifinger module.

The aim is to develop a modular fixture which consists of only one type of standard multifinger CNC module which can provide locating, supporting and clamping by:   Modular fixturing systems. The simulation of the hydraulic system, electric system and the programmable logic controller was prepared using automation studio.

Modular assembly systems are. line and all the allied fixturing elements which will fully make the system functional 9. Virtual and digital mock-up of the assembly. Prior to physical manufacturing of the fixture, digital mock-up of fixture is done, so as to assess the fixture Assess the potential of fixture as a modular system.

modular can be disassembled at the conclusion of a job and reassembled with other components for another job. Modular fixturing systems as shown on the Fig. 1, they are flexible, and consist of a large number of standard fixturing elements like clamps, locators, V-blocs, base plates etc.

Setup plans are generated based on feasible fixturing plans. Recently, I walked through the premier U.S. exposition featuring world class manufacturers of measuring systems in Chicago and modular fixturing is now even more popular than ever.

I guess the concept is now a proven “missing link” and wrestling with parts and work holding challenges are nearly a thing of the past. Even the guys that invented the wheel. Get introduced to Modular Fixturing products by Carr Lane in our technical information section. Carr Lane offers three modular fixturing system sizes to accommodate a wide-range of workpiece sizes.

Learn how to mount Carr Lane tooling plates on T-slotted tables, subplates, pallets & learn about our Grid Address System. It’s all below. The reconfigurable fixturing system is developed and integrated with a CAD/CAM system. The system considers workpiece display, sheet-metal fixturing analyses (stress analysis and layout analysis), fixture-sequence control and fixture assembly.

Finite-element analysis (of stress) and geometric reasoning (for collision. The modular programmable conformable clamp- ing system developed by M.R. Cutkosky, et al." was designed for fixturing a variety of turbine blade forgings.

This system consists of two-section clamps, where the lower half of each clamp employs pneumatic plungers such that, when released, are free to conform to the profile of the turbine blade.

The Demmeler modular fixturing system for welding is an ideal tool for prototypes, repair parts, custom parts, process development or any other short run welding job, including short-run robotic applications.

Precise fixtures can be ready in a matter of hours. The system includes a full range of components to fixture virtually any part. Design for Assembly Definition: DFA is the method of design of the product for ease of assembly.

‘ Optimization of the part/system assembly’ DFA is a tool used to assist the design teams in the design of products that will transition to productions at a minimum cost, focusing on the number of parts, handling and ease of assembly.

Modular fixturing offers manufacturers both stability as well as flexibility in fixturing processes. Moreover, modular fixturing provides the accuracy of a dedicated workholding but offers the ability to quickly reconfigure to manufacture a variety of parts.

Modular fixturing allow shops to respond more quickly to customer needs. Purpose – Reconfigurability of the assembly fixtures, which enables a set of sheet metal automotive parts to be produced on a single production line, is becoming crucial to maintaining competitiveness in the rapidly changing market.

One of the key issues in reconfigurable fixture design is to identify the fixture configuration and make sure there is. Abstract. In Chapter 1 the relationship between fixtures and manufacturing system flexibility was explained.

Flexibility in manufacturing systems was discussed in terms of flexibility in scheduling (short-term flexibility), and flexibility in re-configuring the system to accept a not previously manufactured workpiece (reconfigurability or long term flexibility). The next section provides an overview of the flow of information withira the integrated robotics programming system for modular fixture assembly.

Fig 1 shows the functional relationships of an expert fixturing robotics planner, EFRP, within the intelligent flexible manufacturing system, IFMS [61~ The [~IFRP is made up of the following modules: i.

The modular fixturing systems offer a variety of configurations for interiors and exteriors. Virtual reality has had its place in this process but the tried and true clay model is still job one.

You can’t really sit in a hologram to simulate your reach for the glove box or plug in your cell phone you get the idea. Holding parts for inspection can be a complex and potentially frustrating process but modular cmm fixturing provides a permanent solution.

Swiftfix is a Modular Fixturing System designed to hold components in the most effective manner to assist measurement effectiveness on your CMM or optical machine.

A modular, programmable, conformable clamping system for fixturing turbine blades during machining was developed by researchers at Carnegie-Mellon University. It uses a hinged octagonal frame positioned around an arbitrary section of the blade.

TEXT BOOKS: 1.Modular fixturing is saving Ingersoll a lot more than space, however. Mr. Anderson estimates that the company saves about $, annually by using the modular fixturing system instead of dedicated fixtures. That's a total savings of over $ million for the last 17 years. The plant is still using its original modular fixturing system.Modular Manufacturing Systems The production facilities of a business can be developed and planned at the same time as the modular design of products.

It is possible to arrange an assembly area so that it meets the exact requirements necessary to manufacture the product as efficiently as possible.
