Fixture Base Machining Software

Agile Technology Partners (ATP) has introduced Pro/Fixture automated fixture base detailing and machining software for Pro/Engineer. The new software automatically generates verified fixture-base programs in minutes directly from the 3D workholding concept and does this without conventional NC processing steps. A fixture designer can actually generate CNC programs complete with detail drawings, a bill-of-material, tool list and verified NC code without knowledge of NC programming or the need to operate a CAM system.

Highlights of Pro/Fixture software is fully associative; it creates verifed NC code, tool list, BOM and a complete drawing set; it includes Vektek's CAD library of Pro/E 3D solid models; it makes the fixture base design process essentially concurrent; it goes from a workholding concept to a verified fixture base quickly; and its library is user-expendable to include fixture components from other suppliers.
