TCI Precision Metals, a specialist in machine-ready blanks, offers vacuum workholding systems that are said to reduce production time and improve gripping security on flat stock. The specialized vacuum chucks are available in standard size configurations but can also be custom-made to support unique requirements.

Vacuum workholding is particularly useful for difficult-to-grip parts, and the lack of clamps can reduce setups, the company says. For long life, all systems feature industrial-grade components and a hard anodized finish. Compatible equipment includes vertical and horizontal machining centers, routers, tombstones, pallet changers, grinders and rotary tables.
