Technical Tooling’s Vacu-Grip composite workholding system vacuums mill fixtures by using a granular media technology that configures to any complex three-dimensional shape and pulls a vacuum across the entire surface area of the part. The increased vacuum surface area and surface friction is said to double the holding strength over conventional grooved vacuum tooling.

The system decreases mill fixture lead times, eliminates toolpath interference, reduces scrap rates, produces holding force on the entire surface area, speeds part and tool change-over, and has a wide range of size and geometric capabilities.
