Modular 8" x 12" Vacuum Chucks

Modular 8" x 12" Vacuum Chucks for Efficient Vacuum Workholding, Fixturing & Prototyping


8" x 12" Modular Vacuum Chucks are a Versatile Vacuum Chuck System.
Use for Vacuum Workholding, Fixturing and Clamping.

Single Vacuum Chuck Shown with Workstops and Edgeclamps, Vacuum Holes Two Modular Vacuum Chucks Connected using Multiple Pallet Connectors

Single 8" x 12" Vacuum Chuck

Shown with Side and End Workstops, Adjustable Hex Workstops, Edge Clamps and Gasket Cord.

Two 8" x 12" Vacuum Chucks Connected

Easily connect with Multiple Pallet Connectors and use
only one Vacuum Pump to provide the vacuum.
Use a Single 8" x 12" Vacuum Chuck or Connect 2, 3, 4 or More Vacuum Chucks to Quickly Create the Size and Layout Vacuum Workholding Space Required.

  • Four preconfigured Kits are available with one, two, three or four Modular Vacuum Chucks.
  • Use a Single 8" x 12" Vacuum Chuck, or connect two, three, four, or more Vacuum Chucks and create a custom size and layout vacuum workspace quickly and easily.
  • Numbered locations on the face of each Vacuum Chuck allow for quick and repeatable set up and workpiece placement.
  • Only one Vacuum Pump is required when connecting multiple Vacuum Chucks together.  Use an Air Venturi Vacuum Pump, or Portable Electric Vacuum Pump to provide the Vacuum.
  • Quick set up and use eliminates the need to create custom fixtures and allows easy prototyping of workpieces.
  • Quickly seal off the vacuum holding area by using Gasket Cord or Gasket Sheet.
  • Replaceable Top Plates with various configurations are used to drill through workpieces while protecting the surface of the Vacuum Chucks.
  • Use as a pallet for fixturing without the vacuum.  Low profile Adjustable Workstops and Edge Clamps can hold a wide range of height and size workpieces and can eliminate the need for custom fixtures.

Two Modular Vacuum Chucks shown with Vacuum Created by Venturi Vacuum hooked up to Air Compressor

Image shown above:  Two 8" x 12" Modular Vacuum Chucks connected using one vacuum pump to provide the vacuum. The vacuum is created using a 2L Venturi Vacuum Generator connected to a shop air compressor. A Gasket Sheet is in use with the vacuum chuck appearing on the left, which assists with the vacuum seal.. A Gasket Cord is used with the Vacuum Chuck on the right to seal the vacuum and hold down the workpieces while he vacuum chuck is in use. Adjustable Work Stops and Edge Clamps assist to consistently locate the workpieces.

* The Modular Vacuum Chuck Workholding System has a U.S. utility patent pending.

    • Additional Vacuum Chucks can be added to these kits to further increase the vacuum workholding area.
    • These Vacuum Chuck Kits do not include a Vacuum Source such as an Air Venturi Vacuum or Electric Vacuum Pump which can be purchased separately. Or view Complete Vacuum Chuck & Pump Systems which include Vacuum Chucks and Pumps here.
  • 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.
  • Each 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.
  • Quick Vacuum Gasket Cord placement allows easy workpiece size changes.
  • Side and End Workstops can locate the workpiece consistently.
Top Plates Hold Unique Size Parts
  • Drill through workpieces.
    • Vacuum Chuck Top PlatePrecision 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.
