The incipient implementation of the Industry 4.0 paradigm has led to an increase in the machines sensoring level, in the processes optimization and, thus, in the product manufacturing with a higher added value. In this article a new aspect is described where, through the machine monitoring, the utilization of innovative elements as fixture is enabled for high quality machining processes. These innovative elements are characterized by the great flexibility offered by them as holding component and by their low costs. However, these elements lack the enough geometrical accuracy for applications where a high shape and surface quality product are needed. First of all, in order to have a clear vision of the singularities of each fixture type present on the state of the art, a nomenclature and a classification has been proposed based on their geometry characteristics. Hence, based on this classification, an analysis of the different fixturing solutions provided by the market has been made, ...
