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.
Mikrone can take care of these requirements all under one roof.
