Fixture layout design is concerned with immobilization of the workpiece engine mount bracket during machining such that the workpiece elastic deformation is reduced. The fixture holds the workpiece through the positioning of fixturing elements that causes the workpiece elastic deformation, in turn, leads to the form and dimensional errors and increased machining cost. The fixture layout has the major impact on the machining accuracy and is the function of the fixturing position.
Locating Element For Milling Machine
The purpose of this paper is to propose a general model for locating and clamping workpieces of complex geometry with two skewed holes under multiple constraints. Numerous constraints related to application of the proposed model are discussed as prerequisite to design of fixture solution. Based on theoretical model, a fixture was designed and successfully tested in experimental investigation. Experimental results were also verified using FEM simulations. This study showed that, opposed to conventional approach, novel solution results in significantly smaller fixture dimensions, while providing greater stability.
In machining fixtures, minimizing workpiece deformation due to clamping and cutting forces is essential to maintain the machining accuracy. This can be achieved by selecting the optimal location of fixturing elements such as locators and clamps. Many researches in the past decades described more efficient algorithms for fixture layout optimization. In this paper, artificial neural networks ANN -based algorithm with design of experiments DOE is proposed to design an optimum fixture layout in order to reduce the maximum elastic deformation of the workpiece caused by the clamping and machining forces acting on the workpiece while machining. Finite element method FEM is used to find out the maximum deformation of the workpiece for various fixture layouts. ANN is used as an optimization tool to find the optimal location of the locators and clamps. The input includes the position of the locators and clamps.

Paulraj Genetic algorithm based deformation control and clamping force optimisation of workpiece fixture system, International Journal of Production Research, , , DOI: Siva Kumara and G. In re-engineering mass production industry, design and production of components are frequently changed according to the customer needs within a very short span of time. This leads to rising difficulty in maintaining the accuracy of every finished component. It also induces the long setup time of the cutting tools and machine tools affecting the production rate of the components.
