The wokholding stabilizer system holds the workpiece without drilling and tapping into the part or with the need to clamp the part. The unit is easily adjustable when positioning to grip the part wherever needed to stabilize the workpiece. The system allows for the transfer of loads to the machine table and base. The new Blue Photon stabilizer puck simplifies how parts are loaded, reducing scrap, allowing for faster feedrates and increasing spindle uptime.
Blue Photon’s puck stabilizes the workpiece with its patented grippers inserted into the external fixed inserts. Simply place the puck onto the part where support is needed, turn on the UV light from the Blue Photon controller and the puck will be attached to the workpiece to support it during machining in 60 seconds, without modify the part by adding unnecessary clamping geometry.
The support system is comprised of the Blue Photon puck, adjustable stabilizer arm and base mount. There are multiple base mount options available, T-slot, threaded hole and even a magnetic mount.
Visit Blue Photon at booth 3860 in the West Building, Level 3 during the Rapid+tct 2023 show for a live demonstration and to find out more about Blue Photon’s innovative workholding solutions.
Blue Photon is a manufacturer of adhesive workholding components, including patented Blue Photon grippers and insert assembly products. Designed to hold difficult parts and eliminate operations for manufacturing, hard-to-hold parts and delicate materials are particularly suited to Blue Photon’s workholding technology. Blue Photon’s adhesive workholding solves struggles by eliminating scrap and rework caused by poor clamping, ensuring that the surface integrity of the part is not affected. Blue Photon offers adhesive workholding for assembly, ECM, EDM, grinding, inspection, laser, milling and turning applications for the additive, aerospace, ceramic, job shop, optical and medical machining industries.
