Vacuum Table for Artwork and Photography

You no longer need an easel or frame to hold your artwork & photography. The Systematic Automation vacuum table offers a unique solution that will not obstruct the view between the patron and the artwork: just the bare artwork and the patron - no glass or frame.

The vacuum table will not only hold your artwork, but keep it flat with precision +/-.001" flatness per linear foot.

Vacuum tables can be customized for your artwork (color & shape).

How Does it Work

An industrial strength heater blanket sits atop a perforated aluminum platen on a heated suction table. When heated, this table is capable of applying aqueous, wax, or BEVA linings, removing linings, attaching fabric interleaves uniformly, repairing tears, and reducing or eliminating distortions in paintings.

It is also possible to use the Heated Suction Table to perform other functions that can be carried out on a Vacuum Hot Table. The unit can perform a wide range of suction treatments without the use of heat, including flattening, stain removal, tideline reduction, tape removal, washing, spot leafcasting, and many others. There are many different treatments that can be performed in a laboratory with a heated suction table.
