Not the same old workholding…

In 2001, Professor Ed De Meter of Penn State University worked with manufacturers to solve a difficult and persistent problem: where and how to hold delicate, complex shaped or near-net shaped parts for machining without distorting them. The solution was a photo-activated adhesive system that held a workpiece securely and freely, allowing five and even six-sided part access at the same time.

His ideas led to a patent for bonding and debonding a workpiece to a manufacturing fixture by use of a gripper. Grippers are the key feature of Blue Photon technology. They are designed to hold adhesive, conduct ultraviolet light and support a workpiece. Years of testing and evaluation has made low stress adhesive workholding a workplace reality.
