Drill Jigs – Hand Router Fixtures – Trim Fixtures
Drill jigs are most regularly used to finaldrill or trim a production part using means of hand tools such as pneumatic drills routers. These are commonly configured to use locking Helox&Shelox bushings or a traditional slip renewable drill bushing that captured by a lock screw. Often these tools are used in on-wing configuration or at the piece-part level in a production operation. Routers are mostly commonly used to final trim or even remove (HAZ) heat affected zone on the peripheral of a part.
Design considerations: Ergonomics and weight for ease of handling, Color coded and tool instructions engraved or laser etched into the tool surfaces.
Common tooling material: Aluminum, Fiberglass, Ultem, 3d Printed
