What is Fixture Design and Machining?

A fixture refers to a device used for locating, supporting, and holding a workpiece during an ongoing manufacturing process. Most production processes involving automated manufacturing, assembly operations, and inspection mechanisms need fixtures. It is crucial that a fixture is accurately able to locate the targeted workpiece with respect to the orientation of a measuring device or cutting tool. Hence, fixture design and machining must be highly precise for the proper functioning of the final product.

Fixture design and machining aim to create a device that is able to locate, clamp, and secure a workpiece in a particular location for the production process. Usually, there are specific use cases for a particular fixture design. Hence, they are manufactured individually according to the requirements. 

Jigs are similar to fixtures but provide the additional functionality of guiding the cutting tools in boring and drilling operations. Sometimes, the mechanisms for holding workpieces are collectively called jigs and fixtures.
