This thesis represents a case study in designing a new machine fixture for the electronic industry. Of the various electronics component, the machine fixture will only focus on the LED sector. The new machine fixture would act as a ‘holder’ to hold the LED securely in the required position for the machine operation. In addition, it would be able to perform the bending and cutting operations simultaneously. By using the machine fixture, the user would be able to bend and cut the LED pin connector to the required shape and length. This design differs from the previous designs because it is able to perform the various tasks/operations on a short duration time. This machine fixture would vastly reduce the cycle time for producing LED’s in the current situation. Besides that, it has a higher precision, which directly means better quality in the product produced. The machine fixture would also help reduce the manufacturing cost for each LED. Since the machine fixture is semi-automated, we can reduce a substantial sum in the labor cost. The expenditure spent on quality control for part components can be reduced because the machine fixture would produce LED’s, which is of a standard quality range. Other than that, semi-skilled workers can be used to replace the skilledworkers whom are previously irreplaceable using this machine fixture. This fixture would also yield a higher production rate compared to the previous method. Finite element analysis that I use to analyze the structure of the machine fixture include Cosmos Xpress, Festo Pneumatic Software and Machine Design Tool
