Final Report - MAFFIX (Completly flexible and reconfigurable fixturing of complex shaped workpieces with magnetorheological fluids)

Project ID: 32818
Funded under: FP6-SME


This is the final report of the project MAFFIX. The primary aim of the project was the development of a completely flexible, reconfigurable and reusable workholding system capable of locating, clamping and supporting firmly any type of component independently of its shape, material and structural stiffness while several machining operations or other manufacturing related operations are exerted on it.

The report begins with some background on fixturing and manufacturing operations, as also related to the problems occurred during material removal. The project objectives are presented in terms of scientific, technological, social and environmental aspects and then there is a detailed presentation of the project's structure and the work progress under the respective work packages. A section concerning the communication among the partners, the project management and several issues occurred during the project consist a separate section at the end of the report.
