Vacuum Table for Ultrasonic Cutting Machines

In the process of ultrasonic machining, it's crucial that your workpiece is secured. One of the best hold down methods is with the integration of a vacuum table custom assembled for your ultrasonic machine. Systematic Automation manufactures high-precision vacuum tables (+/-.001″ flatness per linear foot) for thin materials. Our vacuum tables will ensure your workpiece is held in place for the most exact and efficient machining.

Two types of vacuum pumps are offered depending on your machining operation. Both pump types are available with separate coolant separators. High flow (rotary vane) vacuum pumps in conjunction with the vacuum table allow some vacuum leakage without losing significant vacuum force. Rotary vane pumps pull less vacuum force than diaphragm type vacuum pumps which are high vacuum force but low vacuum flow pumps. Even a small leak will greatly reduce vacuum holding power when using a diaphragm pump. However, the holding power of the vacuum table when using the diaphragm pump is maximized providing there is a proper seal between the vacuum table and the workpiece.

Sacrificial subplates with corresponding vacuum holes are available if you are machining through your workpiece. Our knowledgeable engineering department will assist you in selecting the optimal size vacuum table, type of pump best suited for your needs, and port location. Our precision vacuum tables are available with vacuum port connections from any side of the table, or at any location from the bottom of the table.
