Complete Details:

Modular Vacuum Chuck Kits

  • Use one Modular Vacuum Chuck Pallet or combine several to increase the workholding area.
  • Preconfigured Vacuum Chuck Kits are available for ease of ordering which include one Vacuum Chuck, or Multiple Pallets of two, three or four Modular Vacuum Chucks and accessories.
  • Use a Single 8″ x 12″ Vacuum Chuck, or connect multiple Vacuum Chucks to create a custom size and layout vacuum workspace quickly and easily.
  • Additional Vacuum Chuck Pallets can be added to these kits to further increase the vacuum workholding area.
  • Quickly create different size & layout Vacuum workspaces using the Modular 8″ x 12″ Vacuum Chucks.
  • Vacuum holes can be used for vacuum, clamping, or locating the workpiece.

Gasket and Hold Down of Workpieces

  • Quickly seal off the vacuum holding area by using 1/8” diameter Gasket Cord or 8” x 12” Gasket Sheet.
  • Gasket Sheet can be trimmed to fit underneath specific workpieces.

Prototype Parts Quickly

  • The 77 holes on the Vacuum Chuck top are threaded with accurate 1” spacing to allow placing low profile Adjustable Edge Clamps and Workstops anywhere on the Vacuum Pallet.
  • This flexible design reduces set up times and eliminates the need for custom fixtures.
  • There are 29 vacuum/clamp holes on the pallet top.
  • Eliminates the need to create custom fixtures and allows easy prototyping of workpieces.
  • Flexible configuration and set up allows you to prototype parts quickly.

Fits in a Standard Milling Vise

  • Hold the Modular Vacuum Chuck in a standard milling vise or attach a Vise-Block for vise openings as small as 5”.

Repeatable For High Production

  • Allows for quick and repeatable set up.
  • Repeatable workpiece position between Pallets for high production. Load one Vacuum Chuck off-line while another is being machined.
  • Numbered locations on the face of each Vacuum Chuck allow for repeatable and consistent workpiece placement.
  • Quick Vacuum Gasket Cord placement allows easy workpiece size changes.
  • Threaded Hole locations are labeled/numbered to allow documenting setups.
  • The Vise Stop-Pin locates Pallet in the milling vise.
  • Hex Workstops, Adjustable Edgeclamps, Side and End Workstops locate the workpiece consistently.

Drill Through Workpieces

  • Replaceable Top Plates and the low slip Vacuum Gasket Sheets allow drilling through and machining around the outside of the workpieces without damage to the Vacuum Chuck.

Vacuum Source

  • Only one Vacuum Pump is required when connecting multiple Vacuum Chucks together.
  • An Air Venturi Vacuum Pump, or Portable Electric Vacuum Pump can be used to provide the Vacuum.

Hold Parts On A Magnetic Chuck

  • Hold parts on a magnetic chuck by attaching the Steel Vise Block. Vise Block allows holding Aluminum, Plastic, and thin workpieces on a magnetic chuck for surface grinders.

Use as a Pallet for Fixturing Without the Vacuum

  • Can be used as a Pallet for fixturing without the Vacuum by using low profile Adjustable Edge Clamps and Workstops.
  • Low profile Adjustable Edge Clamps and Workstops reduce set up time and eliminate the need for custom fixtures.
  • Adjustable Workstops and Edge Clamps can hold a wide range of height and size workpieces.
Vacuum Chuck Specs:
  • Precision Ground Aluminum Modular Vacuum Chuck.
  • 8″ x 12″ x 1.45″
  • 77 threaded 1/4”- 20 holes.
  • Threaded hole locations are labeled/numbered to allow documenting setups.
  • 1.0” hole spacing for clamps allows for quick and accurate workpiece placement.
  • 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.
  • Only one Vacuum Pump is necessary for multiple Vacuum Chucks.
  • Connect multiple vacuum chucks with Vacuum Connector, which allows allows use of only one Vacuum Pump.
Hold Unique Size Parts & Hold Parts Securely:

Use a Hex Workstop and Edge Clamp to Securely Hold Various Size Parts, locate parts consistently.

  • Adjustable Workstops and Edge Clamps can hold a wide range of height and size workpieces and can eliminate the need for custom fixtures.
  • Tightening the flathead screw moves the Edge Clamp toward the workpiece, holding it securely in place.
  • Low profile for maximum clearance.
  • Reduce set up time and eliminate the need for custom fixtures.
  • Numbered locations allow for repeatable set up.
  • Black Oxide steel construction.

Side and End Workstops hold parts in place, reduce side pressure, locate parts consistantly.

  • Side and End Workstops locate the workpiece consistently.
  • Securely holds parts in place, minimizes workpiece movement if large amount of pressure is applied to the workpiece.
Protect the Vacuum Chuck Surface:
  • Replaceable Top Plates and Gasket Sheets can be used to drill through workpieces and protect the surface of the Vacuum Chuck.
  • Precision ground Replaceable Aluminum Top Plates are available to cover the surface of the Vacuum Chuck.
  • Top Plates allow drilling through or machining around the outside of workpieces without damaging the vacuum chuck.
  • Several configurations of Top Plates are available to hold unique size workpieces and protect the surface of the Vacuum Chucks.
  • The low slip Vacuum Gasket Sheet allows drill through the workpieces without damage to the Vacuum Chuck and provides vacuum seal.
Vacuum Pump Selection:

These Modular Vacuum Chuck Kits do not include a Vacuum Pump.

  • Use an Air Venturi Vacuum Generator Pump, or Portable Electric Vacuum Pump to provide the Vacuum.
  • You can also purchase a Complete 2L Vacuum System that includes Vacuum Chuck(s), accessories, and choice of an Air Venturi Vacuum Generator or Portable Oil-Free Electric Vacuum Pump.

Air Venturi Vacuum Info

  • The most popular Air Venturi Vacuum is the 1/4 NPT Vacuum Pump, Part No. 10033.
  • Connecting shop air to the Air Venturi Vacuum Pump creates a vacuum.
  • The Air Venturi is an excellent option when maching in shorter duration.
  • Purchase seperately here.

Portable Electric Vacuum Pump

  • If you are machining for longer cycles, the Portable Electric Vacuum Pump is an excellent option.
  • It is independent Vacuum Pump, and using it will free up your shop air for other operations.
  • 20 gallon ASME tank with a 10 CFM vacuum system.
  • 3/8″ NPT connection.
  • Maintenance free 3/4 hp oil free/oil-less Vacuum Pump Motor.
  • Vacuum Gauge.
