Established in 1990, Bluco Corporation has been bringing new ideas in modular fixturing to market for more than two decades. Our steady growth can be attributed to a high-precision product, a strong engineering background in fixture design and a diverse yet loyal customer base. We pride ourselves not only on delivering great products, but also outstanding customer support and service.
We will continually strive to deliver the highest quality components, tables, services and solutions as we look forward to providing unique solutions for all of our customers' needs. Contact us today with your next fixturing project and see what others have discovered – a dedicated partnership in solving your workholding needs.
Our 4,000 square foot showroom provides a personal setting for customers to discover the possibilities of modular fixturing. Hosted by a design engineer, the showroom is open from 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday, and special arrangements can be made for evenings or weekends. We are conveniently located 45 minutes from either of Chicago’s two airports (O’Hare and Midway). We look forward to hosting you for a visit in the near future.
Modular fixturing for welding is often times compared to an Erector Set® or a box of lego’s which leads to a logical question – how does a customer know what they need? Over the last 25 years, we’ve taken the guesswork out of selecting the right mix of tooling components by providing full engineering support (free of charge) through our design center. Our staff of qualified engineers has an extensive background in welding fixture designs, fabrication, welding and general manufacturing. Some of our engineers were actually users of our tooling and left their former employer to come work for Bluco because of their passion of the system and its unlimited uses. To work with our engineering team, send us your CAD models of your next workholding project or stop by when you’re in the Chicagoland area.
All of our fixturing elements (tables, bolts, angles, clamps, etc.) are built to the highest of standards. In other words, they are made to last a lifetime. Bluco stands behind the quality of its fixturing system 100%. Our lifetime warranty backs this up by repairing or replacing any component that breaks under normal wear and tear conditions for as long as a customer owns their fixturing system.
Everything we sell includes a lifetime exchange guarantee. If for any reason our customers find they are not using a component, they may send it back to us and exchange it for something of equal value. We even allow customers to return used components to exchange for similarly valued components from our used inventory.
Our fixturing system is designed to last a lifetime, but that isn’t always the case with our customer’s needs. Should circumstances change in your business model where you no longer need your tooling, we encourage you to contact us about our buyback program. Regardless of the age or condition of your equipment, there is always life left in your tooling.
Low Cost Rental
Our popular fixture rental program is an easy way for companies to get started with a complete modular fixturing system immediately without the hassles of budget approvals or capital outlay. Companies who aren’t sure if rentals are for them should take a closer look at the benefits:
- Try before you buy (no risk evaluation)
- Rent-to-own options included with each rental
- No long term commitments – monthly rental options available
- Job shop work (don’t know how long you’ll need the tooling for)
- Temporary solutions for a surge in orders that your dedicated fixtures can’t support
- Short term fixturing solution until your dedicated fixtures are ready
|Rentals available from a single component to a complete system|
Regardless of the age of the equipment, we can recondition everything. By inspecting, cleaning, calibrating and hardening, we can bring old systems back to life — including old tables, locators, clamps and bolts. Our reconditioning program is available for existing customers who wish to take advantage of the hardening features we offer for new equipment. Even companies who have picked up a system at an auction can get their Bluco tooling brought up to current standards for another lifetime of use.
Many of our customers use this database in their manufacturing process. Access to the library will ensure accuracy and a faster setup. Bluco Application Engineers are available to conduct information sharing sessions on designing fixtures using this library.
Bluco Corporation proudly supports these charitable organizations through donations of both monetary contributions and volunteer time. We encourage all of our employees, customers and prospects to support local charities in their communities. Giving back does make a difference in people’s lives.
