Unfortunately, I don't get that many chances to share our work with you guys due to NDA and other legal shenanigans, but I finally have some "cool" fusor only related pictures that they will let me share. Machining pictures to follow. Enjoy!
- Custom modular fixture plate used for several parts. Notice how the fixture is actually split into three identical modular plates. The plates themselves are machined separately first, then stacked next to each other for however many are necessary based on the final part required, and then a custom fixture program is run on top of the joined plates for the part in question. In this instance, several drilled and tapped holes are added to the fixture as well as an engraved outline to help with initial blank positioning, and finally two X adjustable work holding clamps. This method facilitates the reuse of fixtures for multiple parts.
