Modular Fixture Designer (MFD)

Modular Fixture Designer (MFD) is a state-of-the-art solution for manufacturing setup automation. Automate the stack-up process with intelligent selection strategies for various setup components. Work within one solution: Siemens NX™ to complete the entire process without any need of data translation.  

Fixture system is a set of devices to securely hold the position of workpiece during machining process. Modularized fixture system is a high-performance solution, especially for mold manufactures.  

Keeping user benefits in mind, we have also partnered with FCS System, who is a renowned industry leader.  

Do you struggle with any of these challenges?

– Difficult to find optimum combination of manufacturing setup components

– Lost accuracy and degraded efficiency due to undesired number of setups

– Having to leave native software platform to find setup solutions

– Deal with data translation issues for forced data migration

– Hard to visualize chosen setup components

– Tedious to locate correct seat hole position for the setup device

– Cumbersome process for managing setup library components

– Manually creating setup reports for shop floor

If yes, then we have a unique solution to address your challenges:
