During the mass production of products, time is of the essence. At GoProto, we help you produce custom jigs and fixtures to help you speed up your production process and shrink the cost of traditional production without sacrificing accuracy.
Jigs and fixtures that are printed using 3D technology take much less time and are no more expensive even for the most complex design. We offer the capability to customize your 3D printed jigs and fixtures for specific uses, resulting in better production all around.
Jigs are used to guide the cutting or machining of a tool. Most commonly, a drill jig is used to guide a drill bit, creating holes in the same location each and every time. A fixture is used to hold your work in the machine at a precise location. Both jigs and fixtures drastically reduce the time it takes to produce products on a massive scale.
Jigs and fixtures help you avoid errors during the production process that could derail it. They’re also safer than traditional methods, provide durability that is unmatched and allow for quick design revisions as your processes change.
At GoProto, we offer 3D printing for all of your jig and fixture production needs. With 3D printing/additive manufacturing, we produce low-volume products as you need them, just-in-time. Need to change your jig or fixture in the middle of production? With additive manufacturing, you can do that without delay. We create highly customized parts without a need to modify your tooling.
Eliminating the need for manual machining, our CNC machining capability makes creating jigs and fixtures simple. This capability uses computer numerical control to electronically interpret numbers to allow machinery to create your design. The process is flexible, extremely precise and the best for finishing your end product. Some of our available materials include:
