Specialty jig manufacturing


A custom jig is a special device that holds, supports, or is placed on a part to be machined. Jigs improve the precision of machining components. Jigs hold and guide the workpiece. Custom jigs can usually be easily moved to new locations as needed.


Drill jigs are used for drilling, tapping, reaming, chamfering, counterboring, countersinking, and similar operations.



Customized fixtures


Custom fixtures provide repeatability, accuracy, and interchangeability in your manufacturing processes to make accurate duplicates of parts. Fixtures are production tools that locate, hold and support the work securely, so the required machining operations can be performed with precision.


Custom fixtures help simplify metalworking operations performed on special equipment. Custom fixtures can increase productivity, therefore, reduce the cost of manufacturing as well as they can be part of the quality control process.


Examples of the more-common fixtures include milling fixtures, lathe fixtures, sawing fixtures, and grinding fixtures.
