2L Modular 8" x 12" Vacuum Chucks are a unique system that allows multiple Vacuum Chucks to be connected to
easily create the size Vacuum Chuck and vacuum workspace needed.|
Use a single 8" x 12" Vacuum Chuck, or connect 2, 3, 4 or more Vacuum Chucks to create the size vacuum chuck or layout required. The Vacuum Chucks can also be used as a fixturing pallet, without the vacuum, using the 2L Adjustable Workstops and Edge Clamps.
Use the Modular Vacuum Chucks for quick and flexible set up for prototypes and eliminate the need to create custom fixtures. The Vacuum Chuck face is designed with numbered locations which allows for quick set up, consistent workpiece placement, and is an excellent option for high production due to the ease of repeatability.
This system allows you to use your own Vacuum Pump to create the vacuum, or purchase a Air Venturi Vacuum, or Portable Electric Vacuum Pump to complete your set up. Complete Modular Vacuum Chuck and Vacuum Pump Systems are also available.
Large Vacuum Chucks are produced from flat ground hi-tensile cast Aluminum plate. Vacuum Chucks have a unique grid design which maximizes the holding power of the Vacuum Chucks.|
- 13" x 25" x 1.5"
- 18" x 36" x 1.5"
- 24" x 48" x 1.5"
Each Vacuum Chuck has individual Vacuum Ports with multiple vacuum holes per port which allow for flexible use of the entire top surface. 1/2" spacing between the Gasket Cord Slots provides for flexible workpiece placement and optimizes table space and the amount of workpiece exposed to the vacuum.
These Vacuum Chucks can be used with an existing Vacuum Pump or purchase a Air Venturi Vacuum, or Portable Electric Vacuum Pump to complete your set up. Or, Complete Modular Vacuum Chuck and Vacuum Pump Systems are also available.
2L produces Vacuum Chucks in house in these standard sizes. Custom
Vacuum Chucks are produced with quick lead times.
2L produces standard Top Plates in several sizes and configurations. Custom Top Plates can be produced with quick lead times.
A Complete Vacuum Chuck and Vacuum Pump System includes everything needed to
get started vacuum workholding. 2L Complete Vacuum Systems include a Vacuum Chuck, choice of the Portable Oil-Free Electric Vacuum Pump or Air Venturi Vacuum Generator, Accessories and Gasket Cord.
Portable Electric Vacuum Pump
creates a vacuum for a wide range of vacuum and workholding applications. |
- Portable 20 gallon ASME tank with a 10 CFM vacuum system
- Large visible inlet filter to remove coolant or debris
- Automatic adjustable vacuum switch for auto on/off at a set vacuum
- 110 VAC / 9.2A power connection
- Handle and wheels for easy transport
- Maintenance free 3/4 hp oilless (oil-free) Vacuum Pump Motor
- Maximum vacuum is 26” Hg
This Portable Electric Vacuum Pump can accommodate a 1,200 sq. in. Vacuum Chuck
Powered Venturi Vacuum
Generator Pumps create a vacuum for workholding, fixturing and clamping using normal compressed air (shop air). The 2L Air Venturi Vacuum's straight through design helps prevent clogging from particles or contaminants.|
Use an Air Venturi Vacuum Generator Pump for Vacuum Chuck workholding and custom hold down fixturing applications. The Air Venturi Vacuum can also be used as an AC Vacuum Pump to evacuate air conditioning. Produced in Anodized Aluminum and PTFE (Teflon).
Available sizes: 10-32 UN, and 1/16", 1/8", 1/4" and 3/8" M NPT.
Low Profile Workstops and Edge Clamps can be used with workholding and fixturing applications that require a low clearance profile. These can be used with existing workholding, fixturing,
clamping, or pallet systems, and 2L Modular Vacuum Chucks.|
These Adjustable Workstops and Edge Clamps reduce set up time and eliminate the need for custom fixtures.
The Hex Workstop, Edge Clamp, Corner Edge Clamp, and Thin Corner Edge Clamps can hold a wide range of part sizes including small, thin, corners, or odd shaped workpieces.
Use the Extended Tool Holder when a longer tool is needed to reach into deep
cavities or pockets and where larger diameter collet holding devices will not
allow getting close enough to the cavity or pocket walls.
CNC Countersink Depth Stop
Tool maintains precise countersink depth on materials with tolerance variations.|
The Spring compresses up to 0.375" to compensate for material variations.
Depth of cut can be adjusted in 0.001" increments.
Tool shank fits into a standard 1/2" Collet or End Mill Holder.
Collets are available in sizes of 1/4", 1/2", 3/8", and 9/16" to hold Countersink Tool Bits up to 5/8" (0.625" - 16mm).
Use with 2L Superior Quality Solid Carbide Standard Countersinks or Countersinks with Pilots for maximum performance and to reduce chatter.
