  • Bluco® Corporation, designers and manufacturers of modular workholding solutions, today announced the launch of their upgraded website, The site focuses on Bluco’s solution-based approach to creating modular fixtures, and provides users with easy navigation to engaging content that is optimized for both desktop and mobile viewing.


    From the very first page, it’s obvious the site looks much different. But as Bluco’s Director of Sales, Brian Dodsworth points out, this upgrade goes way beyond looks. “The goal of this project was to tell our story in a way that’s truer to who we actually are,” Dodsworth said. “We wanted to take users beyond hardware and into the world of end-to-end solution building. That’s where our focus is — on problem-solving with our customers. And that’s what this site brings to life.”


    Users will get their first glimpse of what makes Bluco different on the home page of the site, which features the ability to navigate by application (welding, positioning, robotics or machining) instead of by product category. “You don’t have to come to the site already knowing what you need,” said Dodsworth. “You can start with what you’re trying to accomplish, which is a much more intuitive experience for users.”


    Beyond the home page, the site continues to deliver on Bluco’s solution-based philosophy. Among the new pages on the site are the following highlights:


    Solutions Pages: Choose welding, robotics, positioning or machining. Then explore photos, 3D CAD models, testimonials, case studies and application-specific galleries that detail end-to-end modular workholding solutions.


    Why Bluco Tab: New content that walks users through the modular solution building process. Its pages also touch on the advantages of working with Bluco, like their unique catalog-free approach to customer collaboration.


    About Us Tab: Learn more about the people and ideas behind Bluco solutions in this section featuring Bluco’s culture, ideals and employees. Job opportunities and contact information are also located here.


    Knowledge Base: Browse case studies, videos and e-books. This easy-to-navigate section is filled with examples of the challenges manufacturers have faced, and the results delivered by Bluco modular solutions.

    Gallery Page: Browse a new collection of inspiring application examples. Send questions or inquiries about specific images to Bluco’s application engineers.


    FAQ Page: Dozens of answers to the most common questions about Bluco modular solutions, searchable by category or by specific wording.


    Customer Portal: Once registered for the site, customers can access exclusive links that include Bluco’s new e-catalog. The catalog streamlines customer access to modular component information, pricing, CAD models and technical drawings. Customers can add parts to a cart and create a quote, or bookmark parts for later reference.



    The site is slated to undergo continuous updates and additions, much of which will be based on feedback from customers and site visitors. “We’re pleased to have a site that represents us like this one does,” says Dodsworth. “But we’ll continue trying to Make it Better. That’s what Bluco is all about.”
