Custom Vacuum Tables Provide Extreme Flatness
Systematic Automation has developed custom vacuum tables for machine builders and OEMs. Using techniques common to aerospace production, the tables are said to be extremely flat. These vacuum tables are available in any size and with customized features to meet manufacturers’ demands. The company offers full engineering and design support for challenges such as managing thermal expansion and eliminating external forces and stresses when mounting in order to maintain flatness.
As demonstrated at this Cincinnati-area shop, machines that both mill and turn shine brightest when workpieces are massive.
