Custom UJF-3042 series & UJF-6042 Fixtures / Jigs
Our custom fixtures are precision machined to ensure your artwork is precisely printed in the correct location on each part every time. Print location reliability and repeatability is a must for proper registration and automation of large print jobs to reduce scrap, speed up print production and reduce labor costs.
We can create both simple and complex tooling in order to accommodate even the most complicated parts. Simple single layer fixtures are typically constructed from acrylic material while more complex multilayer fixtures are engineered from Sintra. Both materials are resistant to warping and damage from accidental drops or impacts.
We follow a simple 5-step procedure to create part fixtures:
- Evaluate parts.
- Configure part layout for maximum part count on the fixture.
- Send customer layout approval proof.
- Once approved, fixtures are created.
- Customer receives fixtures along with artwork template.
Typical turnaround times for our fixtures are 1-2 weeks depending on complexity.
In order to ensure proper placement of your custom fixture on the print bed of your machine, a single set of tray locks is needed per printer. These tray locks are spring loaded to “lock” the fixture to the print bed and ensure proper orientation and registration of the fixture.
Our tray locks include an upper and lower lock and all necessary hardware to secure the mechanism to the bed of the printer.
