The vacuum system FLIP-POD is mainly used for milling, drilling and thread cutting on large workpieces made of wood, plastic, glass, metal and cast iron.
FLIP-POD fixes the workpiece via suction cup-like pods embedded in the vacuum chuck. They create the contact points to the component, via which it is sucked down and clamped. Pods not required are stored upside down in the cavities of the pod chuck and lie there until required for use with other part geometries.
Flip-pod is available in numerous variations such as half and three-quarter pods, eccentric and even height-adjustable.
milling (pockets, through and contour milling)
of large workpieces made of
plastic / glass
also with sawn, rough and non-machined surfaces
high downforce enables use on large machines
machining chamfers, radii and recesses possible on the outer contour of the workpiece on the top and underneath
individual adaptation to the respective clamping situation
pods serve as support for the workpiece to be clamped
easy activation of individual pods by flipping over
modular system, extendable for large clamping surfaces
