Video: Do Vacuum Tables Really Work?

Posted by AM Machinery Sales on October 11, 2017

Tony_ McCue President of AM Machinery talks about Vacuum tables.

This week, we’re turning things over to AM Machinery Sales President Tony McCue for another video blog post.

In this clip, Tony asks the question “Do vacuum tables really work?”

And in his opinion, they do not. They are too costly, he argues, and ineffective when working with smaller pieces. Some people choose to install fixtures to keep small pieces in place, but that only adds to the cost.

“With our machine and this disc concept, you virtually eliminate that problem. It just goes away,” Tony says in the clip. “And that’s a nice thing to be able to offer you. I’ve done parts the size of a penny, and never shot them out of a machine. It’s just a better way to do a small part.”
