Blue Photon grippers

Blue Photon now offers metric-size, high-performance, ultraviolet (UV)-light transmitting workholding grippers. The device is designed with multiple diameters to hold small to large workpieces. The grippers are inserted into a fixture, and the workpiece is secured to the grippers with the company’s  gel-like adhesive material, BlueGrip. UV light is transmitted through the core of the gripper for 60 to 90 sec. to cure the adhesive, bonding the gripper to the part. These metric workholding components are said to achieve the same results as inch-size products. Blue photon workholding is said to improve tolerances and part access, reduce scrap and eliminate extra processes.
