VACUUM CLAMPING TECHNOLOGY
THE MOST IMPORTANT ON THE SUBJECT OF VACUUM CLAMPING TECHNOLOGY

WHAT IS VACUUM?

A vacuum is the state in a space which is free of matter. In practice, we already call it a vacuum when the air pressure in a space is less than that of the atmosphere.

Units of measurement used

The most common units are the pascal and the bar.
> 100 Pa = 1 hPa
> 1 hPa = 1 mbar
> 1 mbar = 0,001 bar

Vacuum clamping systems

Vacuum clamping systems are used above all in the
wood, plastics and non-ferrous metals industries for quick,
simple machining; they are compatible with CNC machine
tools. Here vacuum technology is used in connection with
special handling systems, for example in order to fix an
aluminium plate and machine it from all sides. This increases
productivity and cost-effectiveness: the fixing does not
cause any damage to the workpiece, and no laborious,
time-consuming aligning of the workpiece is required.
