Complete Vacuum System: 8" x 12" Modular Vacuum Chucks & Air Venturi Vacuum

Modular 8" x 12" Vacuum Chucks and Air Venturi Vacuum Workholding Systems


These Complete Vacuum Systems include our 2L Modular Vacuum Chucks, Air Powered Venturi Vacuum Pump, and the accessories you need to get started Vacuum Chuck workholding. order below

The 2L Modular Vacuum Chucks are designed to allow use of a Single 8" x 12" Vacuum Chuck, or combine 2, 3, 4 or more Modular Vacuum Chucks to easily increase your workspace area, size and layout.

The ability to quickly create and modify the size Vacuum Chuck needed eliminates the need to create custom fixtures and allows easy prototyping of workpieces.

The 1/4" NPT No Clog Air Venturi Vacuum Generator Pump included in these Complete Systems creates a vacuum using compressed air.  It has a straight through, filter free design which helps prevent clogging from debris when machining.

      Combined Pallet size: 24" W x 16" L x 1.45" H, or 32" W x 12" L x 1.45" H. Details below.
    • Additional Vacuum Chucks can be added to these kits to further increase the vacuum workholding area.
  • Each 8" x 12" Modular Vacuum Chuck has 77 threaded 1/4”- 20 holes with accurate 1.0” spacing for clamps.
  • The Vacuum Chuck has 29 Vacuum Holes per 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, for clamping, or locating the workpiece.
  • Threaded Hole locations are labeled/numbered to allow documenting setups.
  • Use of these Vacuum Chucks allows for repeatable workpiece positioning and set up for high production. Load one Vacuum Chuck off-line while another is being machined.
  • Quick Vacuum Gasket Cord placement allows easy workpiece size changes.
  • Use as a Vacuum Chuck or a fixturing Pallet System using the included low profile Adjustable Edge Clamps and Workstops.
  • Vacuum Chuck fits in a standard milling vise or attach the optional Vise-Block for vise openings as small as 5”.
  • By attaching the Steel Vise-Block this allows Aluminum, Plastic, and thin workpieces to be held on a magnetic chuck for surface grinders.

Air Venturi Vacuum Generator Pump

 
Venturi Vacuum Generator Pump

  • The 1/4" NPT Air Venturi Vacuum Generator Pump creates a vacuum using compressed air.  Its' straight through, filter free design helps prevent clogging from debris when machining.
  • The vacuum operates by supplying compressed air to the supply port.  When air pressure is applied, the Venturi creates a vacuum at one end and the air is exhausted out the other end.
  • Vacuum Flow (SCFM): 4.5
    Amount of Supply Air Used (SCFM): 5
    Diameter of straight through vacuum flow path (Bore Diameter): 0.20" (5mm)
  • Workholding / Fixturing calculations: 
    Hold down force is calculated simply by:
    Force = (area of part being held in sq. in.) x (vacuum in psi).

    For Example, if you are using a 3" round suction cup to hold a part the force applied to the part is:
    7.069 x 11.8psi = 83lbs of holding force (For reference: 24"HG=11.8psi)
    Where 7.069 is the area of the circle (πr2) = 3.14159 x 1.52
  • View additional information, typical supply air consumption rates and vacuum flow rates for the Air Venturi Vacuum Generator.
 

No Clog Air Exhaust Silencer

 
No-Clog Air Exhaust Silencer
  • 1/4" NPT.
  • This silencer is used to quiet air exhausted from the Air Venturi Vacuum.
  • Straight through, filter free design limits possible clogging by debris.
 

Vacuum Manifold

 
Vacuum Manifold
  • Use to connect the Modular Vacuum Chuck to the Air Venturi Vacuum Pump. 
  • The Manifold has 1/4” NPT threads.
  • Includes: Vacuum Gauge, Brass Tee Fitting, 2-1/4” M NPT - 1/4” M NPT Fittings, 2 shut-off valves.
