Abstract

A design and development of swing grinding and gate cutting fixtures has been carried out to improve productivity. The 3–2-1 design technique was used to design the fixture. A case study is taken for Ballast 113, Adapter 117, and Spacer block components. The fixture allows the components to hold forces and optimize the design for machine operation and process function ability. The performance of the proposed fixture for Ballast, Adapter, and spacer block is calculated in terms of cycle time, production quantity per shift, and grinding cost per shift. The cycle time in Ballast, Adapter, and Spacer block is reduced by about 41%, 14%, and 44%, respectively. The Production quantity per shift in Ballast, Adapter, and Spacer block is increased by 70%, 15%, and 54%, respectively, after employing the designed fixture. The grinding cost per shift in Ballast, Adapter, and Spacer block is increased by 41%, 145%, and 37%, respectively, sing the designed fixture. The Annual ballast, adapter, and Spacer block are about near Rs 114,240/- was saved with these fixtures by using designed fixtures.
