  • 3D Printed Tooling and Fixtures
    to use as tools, jigs, and fixtures. This spotlight series highlights how Markforged users have reduced costs and optimized production floor uptime in their everyday manufacturing operations.
  • Create Jigs and Fixtures with CNC Machining and 3D Printing
    Jigs and fixtures often serve as key production floor manufacturing tools that can help streamline part assembly, create efficient workflow processes, improve overall manufacturing quality, help reduce production costs, and automate work. This post takes a look at the difference between jigs
  • How Does Tooling Impact Product Quality, Budgets, and Timelines?
    Tooling is a key technology used in aerospace, automotive, and other major industries to manufacture parts or components. Different types of tooling include work holding tools, jigs and fixtures, and mandrels for thermoforming. Your choice of tooling can significantly impact everything from product
  • Case Study: BMW Uses Xometry's Range of Technologies to Make Custom Assembly Tooling
    BMW tooling engineers can use Xometry's CNC machining, 3D printing, and urethane casting for custom assembly fixtures, which allows the company to put the finishing touches on its vehicles quickly and cost-effectively.
  • How General Plastics' Tooling Foam Empowered Creation and Test of Prototype Missile Aeroshell Cover at Mach 4+ Speed
    tool that would have been process heavy and therefore, more costly. Additionally, with this foam, AASC was able to easily modify the mold tool so it was used as the machining fixture and then the assembly fixture. This helped them save on time and cost. The customer also wanted a material they could
  • Using Rheology Measurement as a Predictive Tool for Solder Paste Transfer Efficiency
    Using a cone and plate fixture on a variable speed rheometer, this study will examine the correlation between rheology and print volume and print volume repeatability of the pastes. The goal is to determine if a specific set of viscosity vs. shear strain rate curves can predict the defect rate
  • Primary Considerations for 5 Axis Workholding
    Clearance and rigidity are the primary considerations when choosing the best vises and fixtures for 5-axis machining. There must be adequate clearance for the cutting tool and part in their position to the table, providing sufficient space for the Y-axis, the fixture height and size of the part.
  • Penske Racing Names Jergens, Inc. "Preferred Workholding Solutions Provider"
    Jergens workholding components that will enable Penske machining operations to create fast set-ups and quick-change fixturing include... FixturePro (R) 5 Axis workholding, a standard modular system that features a interchangeable components and top tooling for 5 Axis machining and the Ball Lock (R
  • Maximizing Capacity of a New Vertical Machining Center
    Rimrock Corporation currently uses a Jergens 4-faced monoquad vise to machine three different spray gun models during one cycle. The process is so efficient that Rimrock is tooling up additional jobs to run on the machine. This will enable them to remove the existing full face fixture plates
  • Packaging With Assurance testing the integrity of packaging materials
    The growth in packaging across many consumer markets has created the need for testing the integrity of packaging materials. Resistance to crushing and burst strength are examples of parameters that are important to the pharmaceutical industry. Texture Analysers with special purpose test fixtures
