Modular Vacuum Chucks - 8" x 12"

8 x 12 Modular Vacuum ChucksThe 2L Modular 8" x 12" Vacuum Chucks are a unique Vacuum Chuck System that allows multiple Vacuum Chucks to be connected. This allows you to easily create the size Vacuum Chuck and vacuum workspace needed.

Use a single 8" x 12" Vacuum Chuck, or connect multiple vacuum chucks, 2, 3, 4 or more Vacuum Chucks, to create the size vacuum chuck workspace or layout required.

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.

Vacuum Chucks - Large Sizes

2L 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.

Vacuum Chucks, Larger Sizes, Precision Ground

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.

2L produces Vacuum Chucks in house in these standard sizes:
13" x 25" x 1.5"    -    18" x 36" x 1.5"    -    24" x 48" x 1.5"

We produce these standard size Vacuum Chucks and custom Vacuum Chucks with quick lead times.

2L 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.

for Large Vacuum Chucks

Large Vacuum Chuck Top Plates

These Replaceable Drill Through Top Plates can be used with the 2L Vacuum Chucks, other Vacuum Chucks or vacuum workholding applications. Using a Replaceable Top Plate with a Vacuum Chuck can protect the surface of the Vacuum Chuck when cutting through workpieces.

2L produces Replaceable Top Plates in several sizes and configurations.  Custom Top Plates can be produced with quick lead times.

Complete Vacuum Chuck and Pump Systems

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.

Complete Vacuum Systems are available with all 2L Vacuum Chucks including the 8" x 12" Modular Vacuum Chucks, and the Larger 13" x 25", 18" x 36", and 24" x 48" Vacuum Chucks.

Electric Vacuum Pump - Portable and Oil Free

The Portable Electric Vacuum Pump creates a vacuum for a wide range of vacuum and workholding applications.
Portable Oilless Electric Vacuum Pump
  • 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.

Air Venturi Vacuum Generators
Straight Through, Filter Free Design Prevents Clogging

Air Venturi Vacuum GeneratorAir 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, filter free 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. We produce our Venturi Vacuums in Anodized Aluminum and PTFE (Teflon) which allows then for use in harsh and dirty environments, as well as clean rooms.

Available sizes: 10-32 UN, and 1/16", 1/8", 1/4" and 3/8" M NPT.

Workstops and Edge Clamps
for Difficult to Hold Workpieces

Adjustable Edge ClampsAdjustable Hex Workstops and Adjustable Edge ClampsLow 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.

Vacuum Switch - Vacuum Gauge - Gasket Cords
for Vacuum Chucks and Workholding

Vacuum Switch - Adjustable Vacuum Gauge

Vacuum Accessories for Vacuum Chuck Workholding and many workholding and fixturing applications.

These accessories can be used with the 2L Vacuum Chucks, and other vacuum workholding systems.

Vacuum Accessories include an Adjustable Vacuum Switch, Vacuum Gauge, Gasket Cords for Vacuum Chucks, Double Sided Workholding Tape, Workstops and Edge Clamps.

No Clog Air Exhaust Silencers - Pneumatic Mufflers
Quiet Air Exhausted from Pneumatic Air Tools, Air Venturi Vacuums & More

No Clog Air Exhaust Silencers/Mufflers quiet air tools, industrial air equipment and other pneumatic tools. The straight through, filter free design allows use in environments where contaminants ordinarily clog air mufflers on air tools. These pneumatic mufflers are also used with the 2L Air Venturi Vacuum Generators.

Individual and Stacked Systems offer noise reduction in approximate ranges from 12-16 and 19-27 db.  The Heavy Duty Silencers which are used in rugged environments such as oil and gas or marine environments allow for an approximate noise reduction levels of 20-30 db.

Available Sizes:  10-32 UN, 1/16", 1/8", 1/4" & 3/8", 1/2" and 3/4" M NPT.
