SOME OF OUR SATISFIED CUSTOMERS

Vacuum Table Options:

 

automatic pin registration

Automatic pin registration may be added as an option for your vacuum table to register your substrate.

sliding vacuum tables

Sliding vacuum tables can be made custom for your application with up to two axis of travel. We also offer swiveling casters for easy transportation.

formica

Formica is an option for your vacuum table surface if your substrate is prone to conductivity or sensitive to scratches. Stainless steel surface optional.

bases

Bases manufactured custom for your vacuum table. Any size and any shape.

valves

Valves may be added to your vacuum table to turn custom zones on and off.

vacuum table zones

Vacuum table zones for actuating different specified areas of the vacuum table with vacuum.

anodize

Anodize may be used for insulation and corrosion resistance. Options for colors are also available.

hole pattern

Custom vacuum table hole patterns are available.

custom shape

Custom shaped vacuum tables to fit your application.

coolant separator

Coolant Separator is the SA solution to avoid CNC coolant from getting into your pump. The coolant will collect in the reservoir with an alarm once it reaches capacity.

heated vacuum tables

Heated vacuum tables can be made to your specification in size and can reach temperatures of up to 400 degrees.

air purification

Air Purification filters 99% of particles from entering the pump. The vacuum can collect debris of any hazardous material if the table is used as a work bench.

 

Construction

The standard 1/8″ thick vacuum table top skin is a tough aluminum alloy backed up by a layer of epoxy resin. This combination provides excellent resistance to dents and dings. You literally have to hit these tables with a hammer to dent them. The entire vacuum table is constructed of aluminum with an aluminum honeycomb core. Commonalty of materials reduces the affect of temperature differences affecting the table flatness. The honeycomb core has a slotted top and bottom to provide vacuum flow evenly across the table.

A 1″ x 1″ manifold surrounds the slotted honeycomb core all around the core internally. This provides the best possible distribution of vacuum at all of the vacuum holes across the vacuum table top.

International customers

Systematic Automation vacuum tables are the number one choice for machine builders around the world. Our vacuum tables are carefully packed to avoid any damage in shipment.

SHIPPING

Most tables can be shipped by UPS in wood crates. Crating / packing charge is 6% of the vacuum table price for sizes over 20″x20″. No special wood crafting is required for tables under 20″x20″.

Standard sizes

The sizes listed are the outside dimensions of the vacuum table. The standard vacuum hole pattern is two inches less than the outside of the table, so a 20″ x 20″ table will have an 18″ x 18″ vacuum hole pattern.

1/2 hp Regenerative Vacuum Pump Price $880.00

Part # R0807020

Vacuum valve not shown for clarity

The vacuum valves

The Vacuum Valve exhausts vacuum in the table when shut off. Standard valve for pump described above is vacuum on/off for 1 3/8″ vacuum hose (inside diameter) and requires a minimum of 80 PSI compressed air supply to operate.
Part # S1801000 – Price $375.00.

The Vacuum Valve with Blowback blows air into the vacuum table. The valve diverts the exhaust of the vacuum pump (pressure) as supply air. The air flow into the table is easily adjustable in force and flow rate, using an adjustment lever on the valve. For 1 3/8″ hose (inside diameter).
Part # S1801001 – Price $510.00.

Adjustable Vacuum Force Intake Valve
permits the reduction of flow to the vacuum table by allowing a controlled amount of air to enter the vacuum table.
Part # S4036M14 – Price $136.00.

Foot Pedal for valve activation.
Part #S0122002 – Price $130.00
