Flexible Active and Passive Pogo Fixturing Systems for Aircraft and Aerospace Applications 2000-01-3012

“Pogo” Universal Workholding Fixtures avoid the high costs, single purpose fixtures and long set-up times traditionally required for holding large, contoured and/or variable-geometry parts and structures.
This paper describes some unique solutions of passive and active “Pogo” fixtures used in the aircraft-, aerospace and defense-industry for cutting, drilling, milling, riveting and assembly purposes.
The “Pogo” fixtures shown in this technical paper allow a high density of pogo-posts and withstand very high axial and radial loads without deflection. The active “Pogo” systems concentrate on highly accurate solutions and “smart” vacuum cups incorporating “intelligent” features.
