Abstract

The Middleton Aerospace Corporation designs and manufactures specialty aerospace parts for aircraft manufacturers. Many of the parts require sophisticated fixturing in order to be machined. Middleton operates a variety of CNC machine brands all of which have differently designed tables. They needed a way of sharing the fixturing systems with all of the machines. After reviewing the fixtures and machines, we designed, manufactured, and tested a fixturing system which would eliminate the need for different fixtures for each machine.
