PHOTO-ACTIVATED ADHESIVE WORKHOLDING (PAAW) TECHNOLOGY
Photo-Activated Adhesive Work-holding (PAAW) is a new technology that was developed at Penn State University to fixture “difficult-to-hold” parts for tight tolerance, manufacturing processes. Its use started in the aerospace parts industry, where it has grown rapidly, and is now spreading into other industries. It is used predominantly for material removal processing of parts made of metallic, ceramic, and composite materials. It is also used to hold parts for in-process inspection and finished part inspection.
