Modular 8" x 12" Vacuum Chucks for Vacuum Workholding & Fixturing.


order belowThe 2L Modular Vacuum Chucks are a unique Vacuum Chuck System that eliminates the need to create custom fixtures and allows easy prototyping of workpieces.

The 8" x 12" Modular Vacuum Chucks can be used as a Single Vacuum Chuck, or combine multiple Modular Vacuum Chucks to easily increase the workholding area as needed.

Four preconfigured Modular Vacuum Chuck Kits with 1, 2, 3 or 4 Vacuum Chucks are available.  Additional Vacuum Chucks can be added to further increase the size of your vacuum workholding area.

Connect two, three, four, or more Vacuum Chucks to quickly create the size and layout Vacuum Chuck required.

The Modular Vacuum Chucks have numbered locations on the face of each Vacuum Chuck which allows for quick set up and consistent workpiece placement. Additional Side and End Work Stops can assist with workpiece location and placement. 

The Modular Vacuum Chucks can be also be used as a pallet workholding/fixturing system without using the vacuum by using the 2L Adjustable Workstops and Edge Clamps.  The Adjustable Workstops and Edge Clamps can hold a wide variety of workpieces and can eliminate the need for custom fixtures.

8" x 12" Modular Vacuum Chuck

8 x 12 Vacuum Chuck
  • 8" x 12" Modular Chucks can quickly and easily increase the workholding area.  Use a Single 8" x 12" Modular Vacuum Chuck or combine 2, 3, 4 or more Vacuum Chucks to increase your workholding area as needed.
  • Flexible configuration and set up allows you to prototype parts quickly. Modular Vacuum Chucks eliminate the need to produce custom fixtures and allows for quick set up for prototypes.
  • Accurate Spacing allows for quick and accurate workpiece placement.
  • 8" x 12" Vacuum Chuck has 77 threaded 1/4- 20 holes with accurate 1.0 spacing for clamps.
  • 29 Vacuum Holes per Vacuum Chuck Pallet. One horizontal row of 11 vacuum holes and 3 vertical rows with an additional 6 vacuum holes each. The vacuum holes can be used for vacuum, clamping, or locating the workpiece.
  • The Vacuum Chuck layout allows for repeatable set up for high production. Repeatable workpiece position between Vacuum Chuck Pallets for high production; load one Vacuum Chuck off-line while another is being machined.
  • Vise Stop-Pin locates Pallet in the milling vise.
  • Threaded Hole locations are labeled/numbered to allow documenting setups.Vacuum Chuck Top Plate
  • Quick Vacuum Gasket Cord placement allows easy workpiece size changes.
  • Side and End Workstops can locate the workpiece consistently.
  • Drill through workpieces.
    • Precision ground Replaceable Aluminum Top Plates are available to cover the surface of the Vacuum Chuck. The Replaceable Top Plates allow drilling through or machining around the outside of workpieces without damaging the vacuum chuck.
    • The low slip Vacuum Gasket Sheet allows drill through the workpieces without damage to the Vacuum Chuck and provides vacuum seal.
  • The Modular Vacuum Chuck can also be used without the vacuum as a fixturing Pallet System by using low profile Adjustable Edge Clamps and Workstops.  The low profile Adjustable Edge Clamps and Workstops reduce set up time and eliminate the need for custom fixtures.
  • The Vacuum Chuck fits in a standard milling vise. Hold the Vacuum Chuck in a standard milling vise or attach a Vise Block for vise openings as small as 5.
  • Hold parts on a magnetic chuck by use of the Vise Block. The Steel Vise Block allows holding Aluminum, Plastic, and thin workpieces on a magnetic chuck for surface grinders. 
  • These Modular Vacuum Chuck Kits do not include a Vacuum Pump such as an Electric Vacuum Pump, or Air Venturi Vacuum Generator.  A Vacuum source is needed to create the vacuum for a Vacuum Chuck.
