Abstract

This Major Qualifying Project was done under the sponsorship of General Electric, Aircraft Engines Division. The project objective was to design a fixture that would reduce the setup time in an electrochemical machining process. We analyzed the existing fixtures and produced a new design by eliminating fixture features that require unnecessary, time consuming steps. The new fixture attains the goal of setup time reduction while maintaining all functional requirements for a fixture in the corrosive electrochemical-machining (ECM) environment.
