Vacuum clamping systems are clamping devices with which almost any material can be clamped for quick and easy machining without mechanical clamping elements.
This increases productivity and economic efficiency, since no damage to the work piece caused by the fixation and the otherwise laborious alignment of the work piece would take a lot of time.
Paso has the know-how and the flexibility to produce vacuum systems according to the applications and requirements of the customers.
Here the customer can determine the number of chambers and fields, the individual sizes and the resolution.
The systems can be installed using a machine table already installed with the machine.
On request, we also manufacture systems that can be built on a machine table.
Basically, there are 5 variants:
• Grid system
• slot- or slit system
• Hole grid system
• sintered metal system
• Freezer systems
Grid Vacuum Plates are suitable for use with simply shaped work pieces having rough work piece surfaces during heavy machining operations such as milling.
A particular advantage lies in the high holding forces and the universal application possibilities.
The system enables a safe clamping of unprocessed work piece surfaces.
By using sealing cords small unevenness and bulges of the material can be compensated.
The height-adjustable stop bars facilitate the positioning of the work piece on the vacuum plate.
This is an expansion stage of the slot system, whereby the vacuum loss is reduced by milling complete across the material and the resolution of the perforated grid (pitch) is given the opportunity to tighten even smaller parts safely.
Also in this system the use of foils or fleece is required.
Depending on the application, the chipboard surface of this system consists of air-permeable sintered bronze, ceramic or porous aluminum.
The special features of this system open up a variety of applications and novel problem solutions.
Preferred fields of application are thin-walled papers, films, circuit boards or metal strips. The system is particularly suitable for measurement and test methods in the micro or nanometer range, for precision voltages and in silicon wafer production.
Grid system for inserting a sealing cord.
For simply shaped work pieces with rough surfaces during heavy machining such as:
Clamping and fixing
For the exact and tension-free fixation of small and smallest components, even with complicated shaping.
