Process: Jigs & Fixtures

Overview

Jigs and fixtures are two types of tool that serve different functions within the production process. It is in fact a common misconception that these names both refer to the same tool. A jig’s primary function is to guide the cutting or machining tool, whilst a fixture is used to hold the workpiece in place. Both tools work together to ensure accuracy and precision across components of the same design. Fixtures can also speed up the efficiency of production as they cut loading and unloading times, meaning that more components are able to be machined during a shorter period versus using other methods to secure the workpiece in place.
