Wide Range of Products
WIDMA has been a pioneer in providing fixtures to customers across India for more than 2 decades. Our expertise in building machines has translated seamlessly into our fixture-building capabilities, making us the preferred choice for many manufacturing OEMs, their suppliers, and machine tool makers.
Our design team uses the latest 3D software for designing and modeling the fixture elements, assembling them virtually, and checking for interference to ensure smooth and accurate execution. The team also performs stress analysis of fixture elements such as base plate, clamping elements, and other supporting brackets and ensures it is designed and optimized to handle the cutting forces with ease. We have executed fixtures projects for components of lengths up to 6m.
- In-depth knowledge of process engineering
- Turnkey fixture-tooling solutions on machining centers
- Integration of fixtures with automation

With Kennametal being our parent organization, we have access to the most advanced tools and process database. Customization of tools is done to enhance their performance parameters which increase the tool life leading to increased machine throughput. The tooling team also helps carry out thorough tool inference checks by simulating the actual conditions in 3D to ensure smooth cutting trials at the customer end. We also partner with various other tooling suppliers as per customer-specific requirements.
In addition to the above, WIDMA also supports integration with machining centers for critical machine accessories such as Coolant Systems, Mist Collectors, Pneumatic and Hydraulic Actuation Units, Probing Systems, Panel Coolers, and Conveyor Systems for stand-alone machining centers.
INDUSTRY 4.0 (IOT) SOLUTIONS
WIDMA’s Industry 4.0-ready solutions enable our customers to collect data and monitor various critical parameters through sensors from the fixtures and machine accessories. Parameters such as levels of fluids in coolant and hydraulic systems, pressure, flow, temperature, etc. can be tracked and recorded via I/O-based sensors. This data is then captured and recorded through software integrated throughout the manufacturing production line. WIDMA’s IoT solutions help customers to track equipment efficiency and performance parameters. Also, the feedback from machine accessories can help in predictive maintenance, as and when required, thereby ensuring their Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE).
