Fixtures are essential elements of production processes as they are required in most of the automated manufacturing, inspection, and assembly operations. Mass production methods demand a fast and easy method of positioning work for accurate operations on it. Jigs and fixtures are production tools used to accurately manufacture duplicate and interchangeable parts. This paper aims at the Design of milling fixture using CATIA software. A milling fixture is used to hold and support the work piece in proper position during the milling operation. It is the manually operated simple milling fixture. Use of this milling fixture causes ease in operation, cost reduction, easy maintenance and replacement. In today’s fast growing industrial sector this milling fixture plays very important role by saving time to achieve quality work pieces and components.
