Blue Photon’s innovative workholding system is solving problems for manufacturers throughout many different industries. From machining optical glass to medical and jet propulsion components, Blue Photon is unlike any other workholding device available. Ask us how to put Blue Photon to work for you in your applications.
Our workholding applications within the aerospace parts production market have been revolutionary. Our innovative photo-activated adhesive workholding system (PAAW) is ideal for the workholding problems common within the aerospace industry, including the challenges of working with materials such as ceramics, composites, titanium, and superalloys. Manufacturers enjoy lower fixture costs with quicker turnaround times.
Blue Photon’s patented workholding system allows you to eliminate wax, resin, and mechanical clamps to reduce set-up time to nearly half the time than traditional holding methods.
High Volume Production Workholding
High Volume Production environments such as the automotive industry need a flexible and efficient workholding method that can be easily introduced into a fully automated operation. Blue Photon’s patented adhesive workholding system can be easily implemented into most current production lines to reduce fixture costs and expedite turnaround time.
Job Shop Workholding
Job Shops enjoy the flexibility and rapid changeover of the Blue Photon workholding system, which results in lower fixture costs with quicker turnaround times. Efficiency and precision predicate success in the consumer goods market. Blue Photon helps manufacturers stay on the leading edge by solving machining problems.
Blue Photon facilitates first-pass machining and finishing in a single setup that is critical to medical device manufacturing, where moving workpieces between machines risks inaccurate positioning and increased labor costs. Our workholding system helps produce high quality, high tech devices with lower fixture costs and quicker turnaround times.
Blue Photon’s grip technology solves workholding struggles by eliminating scrap and time caused by other forms of workholding, ensuring that the surface integrity of the glass is not affected. The workpiece is secured to the grippers with BlueGrip™ workholding adhesive, which is cured with ultraviolet (UV) light transmitted through the core of the gripper.
Blue Photon saves time and money for rapid prototyping and one-off or low volume parts manufacturers due to the system’s capability to hold near net shaped parts including parts that are generated by additive manufacturing. This results in lower fixture costs and expedited turnaround time.
