ALUFIX MODULAR FIXTURING SYSTEM
Alufix is a modular aircraft fixturing system made of high-tensile aluminium. It is designed for measuring fixtures, checking gauges, and assembling or welding fixtures, cubings and gauges. It is also used to set up prototypes, and for stereolithography and design development.
Aluminium aircraft fixtures are very advantageous if the room temperature of the assembly area is not controlled. A uniform expansion of jig and aluminium workpieces guarantees a better compliance with the tight tolerances of the finished product.
Alufix is particularly suitable for small and medium-sized assembly fixtures such as prototypes. In the aerospace industry, Alufix is especially used for on-the-spot fixtures. The jigs can be built within a minimum of time.
Sets of Alufix are available as well as complete aircraft fixtures. The basic Alufix set offers a variety of application possibilities depending on the quantity of components.
ADVANTAGES OF ALUFIX
The Alufix modular aircraft fixturing system has many advantages:
- Ensures high accuracy of all components
- Very lightweight but very stable
- System sizes can be combined
- No weight or size limits on workpieces
- All fixtures are repeatable
- Components are reusable
- Low storage space required when not in use
- Parts library in CAD
- Design software
- Long-lasting and maintenance free
The basic principle of the system, namely modularity of single components which always fit together, has remained the same for almost 20 years. Fixtures of different kinds and sizes can be built on-the-spot out of single components and disassembled after use.
COMPLETE FIXTURES WITH ALUFIX
Alufix can be used to construct many different types of fixtures in various types and sizes. CAD designs are carried out using Fixmes part library and designing software Alufix Expert.
Alufix fixtures are designed in just 20% of the time required for conventional fixtures. Further costs and time savings can also be achieved due to the possibility of changing finished fixtures quickly and easily at any time during the process.
