In incremental sheet forming processes, the expensive dedicated tool are avoided and replaced with a cheap and simple fixing device which support the sheet metal blanks. The current paper presents how a fixing device used for single point incremental forming device is designed, FEM simulated and manufactured. The fixing device can be used for parts with a cone frustum and pyramidal frustum made of DC05 deep drawing steel. The forces developed in the process and the device displacements were estimated using FEM simulation. The device components were manufactured using a CNC machines and the physical assembly is also presented in the paper.
