JJ Churchill partner HK 3d for fixture manufacture

Working in partnership with HK3D, JJ Churchill has reduced the time it takes to prepare fixtures by 70% in its CMM quality inspection process and cut costs by 50%, by using 3D printing.

This new innovative process melds the best of traditional and additive manufacturing for the aerospace industry to produce fixtures, which are being used for an aerospace OEM. The fixture was needed to hold the components in the most effective orientation for the CMM. It needed to deliver repeatable precision loading and ease of use. Usually a fixture could only be manufactured once the components have already been machined. This process typically took two weeks.
