Clamps are parts that are clamped, compressed, and mounted on a testing machine for strength testing. Depending on the type of test piece to be tested (plastic, metal, etc.), different types of test methods (stretching, compression) need to be replaced by a fixture for testing. Used in the machine manufacturing process to fix the object so that it occupies the correct position to accept the construction or inspection of the device. Also known as fixtures. In a broad sense, any process in the process, used to quickly, easily and securely install the workpiece device, can be called fixture. Such as welding fixture, inspection fixture, assembly fixture, machine fixture and so on. One of the most common machine tool fixture, often referred to as fixture. When machining the workpiece on the machine tool, in order to make the surface of the workpiece can meet the size of the drawings, geometric shapes and the accuracy of the location with other surfaces and other technical requirements, the workpiece must be installed before the workpiece (positioning), clamp (clamping) The The fixture is usually set by the positioning element (to determine the correct position of the workpiece in the fixture), the clamping device, the knife guide element (to determine the relative position of the tool and the workpiece or guide the direction of the tool), indexing device (so that the workpiece in a single installation The completion of a number of processing stations, rotary indexing device and linear moving indexing device two types), connecting components and fixture (fixture base) and other components.
