Generally this fixture is a common device used to hold cylindrical job for carrying out shaping and various operations due to quick loading and unloading capability. In this device used on the shop floor for holding the job during shaping and other machining operation. One of the most common methods of holding the work directly on the shaping machine table is by means of T-Bolt and Clamps. Shaping machines are provided with T-Bolt into which T of T slots usually ranges from 15 to 20mm.
Before performing any operation in a shaping machine it is absolutely necessary to secure the work firmly on the shaping machine table. This shaping fixture has a screw at its one end which is used to level the clamp when its often end rests against the work. The work may be quickly set up without any packing piece.
In this project we have briefly explained about various types of machining process Involved,classification of work holding device and types of clamps and design calculations.
