The outline of a building-block-type modular fixturing system is described, and its adaptability to factory automation and future applications are discussed. The modular fixturing system is thought to promote innovation in the production process, since it is based on flexible ideas responding swiftly to changes in production. This system makes a difficult fixture construction simple and will ... [Show full abstract] change the past concept of fixtures, using the method of standardization in fixture components. Accordingly, it can be said that this gives a new direction in fixture construction for the new production system. This fixturing system will greatly contribute to the activation of production systems.
