Paper Title:
Investigation of Fixture Design Exploring Pre-Tensioning Forces
  Abstract

Pre-tensioning forces are, in essence, the selective application of clamping forces applied prior to processess to create a “stress field” envelope that aids the processes of components. There are many potential functions of applying pre-tensioning forces, such as improvement of component rigidity, reduction of machining deflection, and holding of components to counteract the machining forces etc. However, the use of pre-tensioning forces has not been extensively and comprehensively investigated. The aim of this paper is to strengthen the understanding of the impact of applying pre-tensioning forces firstly on simple parts and specifically on the fixture design development by establishing a methodology of using pre-tensioning forces. To investigate the optimised fixture layout and clamping strategy, Finite Element Analyses (FEA) were established to show the effect of applying pre-tensioning forces on machining deflection. Meanwhile, the relevant model validation experiments were applied to verify the FEA models in this study appropriately. Eventually, the results show that the FEA simulations are sufficient and the use of pre-tensioning forces effectively reduces the machining deflection by using optimised clamping strategy.
