Jigs & Fixtures Design & Development


A jig is a type of tool used to control the location and/or motion of another tool. A jig's primary purpose is to provide repeatability, accuracy, and interchangeability in the manufacturing of products. A jig is often confused with a fixture; a fixture holds the work in a fixed location. A device that does both functions (holding the work and guiding a tool) is called a jig.

A fixture is a work-holding device used in the manufacturing industry. What makes a fixture unique is that each one is built to fit a particular part or shape. The main purpose of a fixture is to locate and in some cases hold a work piece during either a machining operation or some other industrial process

The primary purposes of jigs and fixtures is to:

  • Reduce the cost of production
  • Maintain consistent quality
  • Maximize efficiency
  • Enable a variety of parts to be made to correct specifications
  • Reduce operator errors
