Design of Fixture for Angular Pipe Cutting in Vertical Milling Machine and Root Cause Analysis
This paper represents the design and analysis of the fixture for angular pipe cutting in vertical milling machine. In last few decades fixture is being used in the industries as an work-holding device. Ordinary fixture that have been used in past few decades was tedious one and requires more time for fixing the work piece. And the measurements in the work piece has to be marked before fixing the job in the fixture. In vertical milling machine the vice is horizontal position and the head is rotated while taking a angular cut, requires more time and sometimes production may be delayed. This angular cutting fixture designed on the basis on elimination of marking and helps in mass production. This angular cutting fixture is used in cutting and milling process. This fixture is to all type of cutting machine and CNC also. We can cut the pipe in accurate angle and dimension. By using this accurate dimension can be easily machined.
