Many manufacturing company always focus on improving productivity and technology. And the application of checking fixture, jig, fixing devices in the production line could help to achieve these goals.3D printing allows that combining complicated parts to do the highly-customized design. Thanks to its remarkable speed and precision, it becomes ideal solution to the production of checking fixture, jig, fixing devices. Next SEEWE will introduce that use 3d printing technology to print checking fixture, it can improve the efficiency of testing and reduce the cost.
The quality of design of checking fixture have direct impact on the efficiency, cost, quality and safe of production. In the rather complicated checking fixture, there are always many parts such as Multiple Compression, Auxiliary Support and Adjustment Support. Due to the position and clamping force, different parts use checking fixture that are distinctive in structure, shape and size ,so the feature of checking fixture is Multiple Species and Small Bat. If we use the traditional way that is molding, the cost is way too high and the efficiency is rather low. Even with the help of CNC Machining Center to mold quickly, sometimes still has a lot of limits such as insufficient processing of edges and corners and inadequate structure of holes so we can not get the checking fixture that we need. Post-processing could be rather inconvenient.
With the rising of 3d printing technology, now we have new solution to the production of checking fixture.3d printing fits the manufacturing of small bat and complicated products well and it can connect to the CAD design of jig in the front seamlessly to achieve the non-mould production. For the company that need to use the jigs, using 3d printing technology to customized them has a lot advantages such as low cost, high efficiency and good results. Nowadays the application of 3d printing customized checking fixture and fixing devices in production line of cars, manufacture of equipments, aerospace and other heavy industries is very popular.
Taking plastic part as an example, it is rather flexible in the natural state. And during the process of testing usually we want to get the result of deforming in order to show the status of generating. And most of the plastic parts tested do not have corresponding checking fixtures. In order to meet the needs of clients and save time and cost ,it is a good choice to use 3d printer to print the checking fixture in order to make sure that accurate data can be obtained in dimension testing of plastic parts. Through thoughtful design of checking fixture and understanding of 3D printing process, a high-precision, long-range 3D printer is used for printing.
In the quality testing of products, if each part is measured with a steel ruler and Vernier caliper, the speed is rather slow and have negative impact on scanning efficiency. But if we use checking fixture, the testing work could be done quickly and nicely, and provide standard measurement methods, get accurate data, reduce the occurrence of parts deformation.
And now let me introduce our company SEEWE that especially focus on SLA 3d printer.
SEEWE(Ningbo) Intelligent Equipment Co., Ltd. is a 3D printer supplier that devoted to the production, sales, and development of 3d printer and offer high quality 3d printing service as well.
