3D Print Jigs, Fixtures, and other Production Tools
When talking about production processes and the relevant equipment, most people think of large milling machines, hydraulic presses, injection molding machines, or robots assembling cars and other industrial goods. While this is true, small and seemingly unremarkable tools are used throughout various manufacturing steps, namely jigs and fixtures. These tools are indispensable for production, saving time and making workers’ lives easier. The use of additive manufacturing, more commonly known as 3D printing, to produce jigs and fixtures can be a breakthrough for engineers, production planners, and factory workers to create the right tool for the right task.
