E2E Video: Locating Pins Pt. 4 – Alignment Concerns

When working with and designing jigs or fixtures with locating pins, proper alignment is crucial to ensuring smooth operation and repeatable results. This episode will address a few of the most common solutions to alignment concerns for locating pins. If you’re unfamiliar with the basics of locating pins and workholding concepts, check out the previous episodes in this series to get up to speed.

One of the biggest issues a new fixture designer encounters is binding of a part, where the way it is placed or removed from a pair of locating pins causes it to become stuck and out of alignment. This can lead to production line slow-downs, or in worse cases, “reject parts” due to improperly assembled or machined components.

Watch the video below to learn about ways to counteract this issue, and to minimizing workpiece binding.
