Blue Photon® will demonstrate the advantages of their photo-activated adhesive workholding system at Southtec 2019 this October in Greenville.

Blue Photon’s workholding products are a manufacturer’s solution to hold parts for tight-tolerance machining and inspection. Complex-shaped, hard-to-hold parts, and delicate materials like ceramic and laminated composites are well suited to the technology which supplies up to 605 lbs of tensile holding power per patented gripper. Any part that is at risk for distortion from mechanical clamps, or that pose complications in fixture design and tool access, are easily and simply held with Blue Photon’s patented grippers and BlueGrip™ workholding adhesive.

Blue Photon’s workholding grippers are a load bearing, light transmitting fixture component that lock the part in place for machining. Grippers are the foundation of the Blue Photon grip technology with multiple sizes designed to hold small to large size workpieces. The grippers are inserted into a fixture, the workpiece is secured to the grippers with BlueGrip, gel-like adhesive material, and ultraviolet light is transmitted through the core of the gripper for 60 second workholding.
