The Tuscan vacuum clamping plate can be operated using compressed air and the integrated Venturi nozzle, or with an external vacuum pump. Cost savings through use of the Venturi nozzle. Low compressed air consumption, thus low operating costs again. Our vacuum clamping plates have multiple suction points, thus allowing for flexible grid allocation and clamping of multiple parts. Vacuum plates can be combined with each other to allow for a larger surface work area. High holding forces and high coefficient of friction allows secure clamping of unmachined workpiece surfaces. Sealing cords compensate for small irregularities in the workpiece surface and the complete design allows for distortion-free, vibration-free five-sided machining.
