Top Dog 1st Runner-Up: Tim Friedmann, Triangle Precision Industries
This fixture for a contour part nested inside a contoured pocket and clamped with Pitbull clamps around outside of part to finish the thickness that followed the contour. For a size reference, I started with a 11″ X 11″ x 9″ block to make his fixture. The setup is mounted on a trunion in a 5 axis Hurco as all the holes were on compound angles staying perpendicular to the contour.
The part is a support strut for a fighter aircraft manufactured for a aerospace company.
”I can’t show you the part that fits in this fixture, “but I can say the Pitbull clamps saved me tons of trouble making this part!”
