Work holding and fixtures play a crucial role in enhancing productivity in competitive manufacturing. Optimum fixturing and tooling can substantially enhance the capacity of CNC machines. Problems related to poor quality and productivity are direct consequences of poor fixturing in terms of its choice or design.
