Jigs and Fixtures

At FET Engineering, Inc. we specialize in providing precision tooling solutions which include complete end to end services for the fabrication of custom jigs and fixtures. This includes complete design, engineering, modeling, and manufacturing. We are also prepared to handle mold modifications, and the implementation of engineering change inquiries (ECI) for alterations in production part molds. Customers across a spectrum of industries can rely on our jigs and fixtures to gauge parts, hold pieces during operation, or trim excess materials. Our jigs and fixtures assist in meeting bottom line manufacturing goals of repeatability, consistency, accuracy, and cycle time reduction. We employ machining, welding, hand working, and hand tuning production processes to fabricate vibration, seamless, holding, and poke-a-yoke jigs. Available fixtures include trim, check, welding, laser, and assembly. We are also experienced builders of attribute or SPC variable gauges, utilizing materials for construction such as composites, Bakelite, resin, steel, and aluminum among other options. Gauges are furnished with certification of specified part tolerances, with tolerance levels ranging from 0.05mm to 0.1mm on datums and SPC’s, and 0.1mm to 0.15m for trim and form.

Thorough in-process and post-production testing is carried out on all fabricated units, incorporating hardness, ultrasonic thickness, and stress analysis testing along with coordinate measuring machine and Ferro Arm inspection methods. Fabrication is carried out at our ISO 14001 and 2001 certified facility, in conformance with standards as outlined by such institutions as NSF, ANAB, and SPE. A full range of value added additional services are available, including trial parts, program management, and packaging among others.
