Hello


Thank you for entering in my post


I was wandering if any of you has any experience about a good book regarding fixturing, tolling or jigs for big machines...


I am currently working on a 8 meters bed CNC milling machine with 360 degrees rotating head, and I am looking for a good book or ebook to improve the systems of clamping


Thank you very much in advance for your support

You can do a lot worse than Google searching Milling Clamps and then Milling Fixture selecting Images and scrolling down the results opening the page for anything interesting in a new tab or window.
I'm a big fan of Kopal mono bloc milling clamps, they're fantastic,

Fixturing is not just clamping, it is making specific tools for the job at hand to ensure repeatability and accuracy. Of course it could just be to hold a particularly awkward part.

The best I can recommend is evaluate the books that have a relevant title:

Also if you haven't already done so, go through youtube to get ideas.
