Fixturing is arguably one of the most complex and challenging (yet fun) parts of machining. Having the proper workholding and fixturing can make or break a production run, but in some cases, it can even break your part.
Users of CNC mill and CNC routers speak a similar language. Both are well aware of the challenges that finding the right speeds and feeds recipes entails, the obsession over finding new tools, and using CAM to make parts come to life.
When you’re making parts, there are a lot of things to keep in mind… tolerances, feeds and speeds, tool wear, workholding… the list goes on and on. Whether you’re making your own parts or stuff for a customer or even shipping components off for Xometry, the final finish of your product is important to remember.
