The replaceable aluminum top plate for the modular 2L Vac-Vise vacuum chuck systems covers the surface of the vacuum chuck to allow drilling through and milling around the periphery of workpieces without damaging the surface of the vacuum chuck. The hole pattern of the top plate is identical to the vacuum chuck for quick setup and consistent workpiece placement. The top plate fastens securely to the vacuum chuck with the included brass screws and can be machined without causing damage to the standard cutting tools being used to machine the workpiece.

The replaceable top plate allows for easy prototyping and fast and repeatable setup for production environments, according to the company. The pre-configured vacuum chuck kits are offered with two, three and four pallets.

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.

    Modular fixturing makes sense for this manufacturer, whether it's machining one- or two-of-a-kind parts for its custom machine tools or larger quantities for its contract machining business.
