Abstract

In manufacturing process, engineers often estimate deformation of clamped workpieces from their features, and select clamping points with minimum deformation. In this paper, fixturing features which composed of the compliance feature and deformation pattern feature are proposed in order to determine optimum points for clamping a workpiece. And the effects of the method of deciding best clamping points applying this concept are confirmed for two-dimensional workpieces.
