Jigs and fixtures are a core component for manufacturing lines. Jigs are customized to control and maneuver a tool or piece during production operations. Fixtures, on the other hand, hold a tool in a fixed location. Together, they speed up the repetitive production process without compromising on reliability. However, producing the jigs and fixtures themselves
