Aluminum vacuum manifold
Vacuum manifold fitted with ball valves, nickel-plated brass tap and swivel fittings. Composed of 2 lines of parallel but independent fittings.
Available in 3 different models based on the number of fittings:
- Vacuum manifold with 10 fittings (5 for each line)
- Vacuum manifold with 20 fittings (10 for each line)
- Vacuum manifold with 32 fittings (16 for each line)
A fitting size of 6 mm, 8 mm, or 10 mm may be chosen for each model.
In the CNC field, vacuum manifolds are used to connect the vacuum pump to the suction cups. The number of fittings depends on the number of suction cups to be simultaneously connected. With the suction-cup vacuum application, being that there are 2 independent lines, the vacuum can be created in the upper plate through one line and in bottom plates through the other. In this way, the vacuum in the cups attached to the table can be preserved while the vacuum in the cups attached to the workpiece can be released.
