SINGLE AXIS ARTICULATING HOLDING FIXTURE (SAAHF)

FIXTURE DESIGN & ADVANCED MANUFACTURING

JAKTOOL was engaged to develop and prototype a fixture that would allow for accurate and repeatable articulation of a test article at discrete intervals. The fixture will be used to position sensitive aerospace equipment in a static test chamber.

Fixture Design & Electro-Mechanical Development

  • Designed and manufactured an electro-mechanical system capable of lifting the required loads
  • Utilized a robust PLC control system to ensure reliable performance
  • Implemented safety interlocks to ensure the safety of the user and the fixture
  • Completed rigorous testing with simulated test mass to verify the longevity of the mechanical and electrical systems

RESULT: JAKTOOL successfully developed and manufactured a complete electromechanical solution controlled through a handheld device. The fixture can lift required loads with the press of a button allowing the client to change test positions saving time effortlessly and rapidly during testing.
