Blue Photon’s photo-activated adhesive system offers a workholding solution for postprocessing 3D-printed parts. The company’s workholding products enable manufactures to hold parts for tight-tolerance machining and inspection.

Complex-shaped, hard-to-hold parts and delicate materials like ceramic and laminated composites can be used with this technology. The Blue Photon system supplies as much as 605 lbs of tensile holding power and is well-suited to holding parts that are at risk for distortion from traditional clamping or that pose complications in fixture design.
