Are you a professional in the stone and glass fabrication industry looking to enhance your CNC machinery’s performance? Look no further! In this post, we will walk you through the process of correctly assembling and maintaining a CNC vacuum pod. We’ll also highlight the essential spare parts you can find on our website to keep your equipment running smoothly. Let’s dive in!

Assembling Your CNC Vacuum Pod

Before we begin, ensure that you have the necessary spare parts and tools at your disposal. You can find these parts on our website: Spare suction-cup parts

Step 1: Measure and Verify

  • Start by measuring the central column of the vacuum pod. This column should be 30 mm shorter than the desired total height of the finished vacuum pod. For instance, if you want a vacuum pod with a height of 100 mm, the central column should be 70 mm.

Step 2: Proper Assembly

  • Begin by placing the O-rings into the slots on the central columns. These O-rings are identical, so there’s no need to worry about mixing them up. Ensure that the surface is clean before proceeding.
  • Align the central columns with the corresponding holes and insert M6 screws into the smaller holes and M8 screws into the larger holes designed for vacuum passage, usually located at the center of the column.
  • Tighten the screws securely but avoid over-tightening to prevent damage.
  • Rotate the vacuum pod and repeat the same procedure for the upper part of the pod, ensuring that the O-rings are placed correctly. Secure all the screws evenly.


Congratulations! You’ve successfully assembled your CNC vacuum pod. It’s essential to tighten all screws adequately to ensure the pod’s stability and functionality. Regular maintenance and part replacement are crucial to keep your equipment in top shape.

Maintaining and Replacing Spare Parts

To ensure the longevity and optimal performance of your CNC vacuum pod, it’s vital to periodically inspect and replace worn or damaged parts. At, we offer a comprehensive selection of spare parts, including seals, suction cup plates, and more, all designed specifically for your vacuum pod. Here’s a closer look at some of the most essential spare parts:

1. Seals:

Seals are among the most critical consumable parts of a CNC vacuum pod, as they play a crucial role in creating a reliable vacuum seal. You can find a variety of seals on our website:

  • Pre-Cut Rubber Seals: These seals are pre-cut and ready to install, making replacement quick and hassle-free.
  • Foam Gasket Seals in Rolls: Our foam gasket seals are available in rolls, allowing you to customize the length as needed for your specific vacuum pod.

2. Suction Cup Plate:

Suction cup plates are another component that can wear out over time, especially if they accidentally come into contact with tools or other objects. We offer top and bottom spare suction plates, ensuring that you have the necessary replacement parts when required. You can find them here: Top and Bottom Spare Suction Plate.
