Complimenting the design and construction of stamping tools, Fox Valley Tool & Die offers the same services in the design and construction of manufacturing and fabricating fixtures. Customers may provide a single component part (or a drawing of the part) from which a manufacturing fixture can be designed to secure the part and provide tooling clearances to machine the parts.
Fixturing accelerates the manufacturing process by providing a tool that enables line employees to quickly load and unload parts, producing the consistent and high quality end products our customers desire.
Fabricating fixtures (robotic or manual) are designed with flexibility in mind to allow for the material variations that naturally exist, and to facilitate minor engineering changes that may surface in the development process. Quick-change features can also be designed into the tool utilizing pneumatic or hydraulic clamping.
