Molds: Jigs & Fixtures

In simple terms, the jig is a tool that guides the cutting (or machining) tool. The most common type of jig is the drill jig, which guides the drill bit for creating holes at desired locations. Using drill jigs increases production rate drastically by eliminating the time spent using a square scriber, height gauge, centre punch, etc. The fixture is a tool which holds the work piece with the machine bed precisely at the desired location. The xture also reduces the nonproductive loading, unloading, and xing time of the work piece. For example, you need to use a milling machine for giving a chamfer at the corner of rectangular work pieces. Mikrone can take care of these requirements all under one roof.
