Blue Photon manufacturers a patented photo-activated adhesive workholding system. Blue Photon’s grip technology solves workholding problems associated with current workholding devices. The technology allows the user to hold parts and most materials without clamping. It also offers fixture design and engineering for milling, turning, grinding, EDM, laser, inspection, and assembly applications, including aerospace, additive, robotics, and medical machining.

    Blue Photon products are designed to hold parts for tight-tolerance machining and inspection. Complex-shaped, hard-to-hold parts and delicate materials are particularly suited to Blue Photon’s workholding technology....

  • Blue Photons patented workholding Grippers are load bearing and light transmitting fixture components inserted into a fixture which supplies up to 605 lbs of tensile holding power each. The process involves applying BlueGrip workholding adhesive to the Grippers and spot curing by UV light for 60 seconds. The UV light is transmitted through the core of the Gripper to secure the workpiece allowing for 5-axis machining. The part debonds with a ¼ turn twist of the gripper or hot water soak. Residual adhesive is simply removed by the application with pressurized steam or hot water spray and a light peeling action. Parts that are at risk of distortion from traditional clamping or pose complications in fixture design are a potential candidate for Blue Photon’s workholding technology.

    Blue Photon is a manufacturer of innovative workholding components, including Blue Photon Grippers and Insert Assembly products. Blue Photon offers fixture design and engineering for milling, turning, grinding, EDM, laser, inspection and assembly applications for the aerospace, additive, robotics, job shops and medical machining industries.
