Blue Photon will demonstrate its photo-activated adhesive workholding system. These workholding products are designed to hold parts for tight-tolerance machining and inspection. Complexly shaped, hard-to-hold parts and delicate materials like ceramic and laminated composites are particularly suited to Blue Photon’s workholding technology, which supplies up to 605 lbs of tensile holding power. Parts that are at risk of distortion from traditional clamping or that pose complications in fixture design is a potential candidate for Blue Photon’s grippers and BlueGrip workholding adhesive.

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.
