Big  Blue Saw

Blog

Starting April 18, 2022, quoting and ordering will begin moving from Big Blue Saw to the Xometry website. You'll continue to be able to get fast service and instant quotes, in addition addition to a whole host of new materials and manufacturing processes!

Fresh out of my e-mail inbox comes this fixture from a customer who wishes to remain anonymous. 

(Of course, at Big Blue Saw we keep your designs confidential. We also keep the fact that you're even a customer confidential as well. Many of the things we make end up in finished products, and our customers see Big Blue Saw's service as a competitive advantage. [Many are happy to provide testimonials, thankfully.] )

The structural pieces  were waterjet cut by Big Blue Saw from 1/4 inch thick aluminum 6061 and assembled by the customer using off the shelf hardware. The design uses tab-and-slot with the pieces held together with through bolts as in tensioned plate construction.

The customer says:


These are medium-load holding fixtures.  Using BBS for these type of fixtures saves us 50%+ on traditional tooling and also allows us to build instrument & medium load machines in a clean office!  (No welding, milling, sawing, etc - -just a few fasteners and counter-sinks.)  These fixtures are doing the job of machined 1/4" Al C-channel assemblies.


Got any parts you would like to show off or want to tell us how we are doing? Let us know!
