POGO™ Flexible Tooling Universal Holding Fixture for Cutting, Drilling and Assembly in the Aerospace Industry 961887
The aerospace industry has entered a new level of World Class Manufacturing, in which manufacturing functions require fixturing to be just as flexible as the machine tool doing the operation.
Flexible tooling has opened new doors for the aerospace industry by creating new tools which are automatically reconfigurable and totally reusable on future programs. Benefits include decreases in non-recurring costs, (such as in the area of tool design and fabrication) and recurring costs, (such as in the area of tool setup / removal and storage).
