Fixtures and Gages

Fixturing and gaging to assist in the manufacture of blades and vanes is one of NHTC’s core competencies. Our state-of-the-art Unigraphics CAD/CAM system allows us to design tooling with the utmost accuracy by working with solid models. This allows a complete review of the tool in a three dimensional solid before production starts. All troublesome issues such as clamping and machine clearances are virtually eliminated.

NHTC supplies gages and fixtures to many of the major aircraft and power generation OEMs including Pratt and Whitney, GE Aircraft Engine, GE Power Generation, Honeywell, Rolls Royce and Westinghouse. We also have aligned ourselves with machine tool builders to provide turn key tooling packages on their equipment for CBN grinding, milling and EDM operations.

The following is a sampling of some of the fixtures and gages that NHTC has built to print for major aircraft engine manufacturers and engine overhaul centers. If you don’t see what you need, please contact us. We’d be happy to work with you to design an item to your exact specifications.
