When it comes to holding parts on a CNC Router, vacuum is the most common (and often only) method being used today. With that being the case, why not maximize a vacuum’s performance if vacuum is the ONLY thing holding parts?
Shops will source everything from which router to invest in, to software, to tooling, to material, to employees and customers. But when it comes time to actually cutting parts fast and effectively, was the router able to do it, yes or no? If parts are too small, or onion skins or tabs are needed, or feed rates are painfully slow, or material is being wasted, or time is being wasted on re-setting up, than we need to improve the vacuum’s performance by eliminating leak. Gasket products and solutions are the only way to improve a vacuum system’s performance.
In this session, you will learn how to eliminate vacuum pressure loss. Users who hold parts better, make more parts in less time. Whether it is small parts or large, production runs or custom work, wood or plastic, big vacuum systems or small, the same science always applies to eliminate vacuum pressure loss and we do this with gasketing products and techniques.
