Vacuum Clamping System – Vakufix®
The High Temperature -Vacuum Clamping Plates join the defined parts system with the actual clamping process, in order to build the most different welding devices for sheet metal manufacturing with the help of a construction kit. An important advantage of our Vakufix product is that no welding seams are covered with clamping arms and as a result they can be easily welded.
The sheet metal parts are easily secured on the vacuum plate with only a small vacuum surface. This makes any correction to the position of the sheet metal parts easier and faster.
When traction-related forces become active, the vacuum area increases immediately and each vacuum plate generates adhesive forces from 40 up to 45 kg. This reduces thermal distortion reliably, especially with stainless steel processing. For component pick-up with integrated voltage on the interior side, vacuum plates with compressed air are used. The high-temperature-vacuum plate is equipped with an elastic stainless steel shim as sealing surface, which can easily be replaced.
We offer the Vacuum Clamping System Vakufix® in two different set options:
- Option 1-Set complete with pump, air chamber and clamping table or plate for
our client’s manufacturing of devices
- Option 2- Set, customized to the working piece, including all accessories
(if the working piece changes, the clamp system can be adapted
by the customer or Forster America)
- For robotic and manual welding of sheet metal plates
