Right side up or upside down, the same surface on both vacuum faces. EASIER and MORE secure on the worKpiece and the machine table.
Used on both sides of the vacuum pod to grip on the workpiece and machine table, the grip pad offers superior side load resistance (shear force) compared to other methods of datum location. Precision engineered rubber offers a completely flat location surface. Simple replacement with POD in place on machinery.
The top and bottom plates offer a recess feature for ease and exact location of the grip pad. The underside of the plates have a recess for the pod legs also.
Yes you can use 5/16” (8mm) foam rubber cord as your vacuum seal but all Vacuforce vacuum pods come standard with an actual vacuum seal offering superior air tight connection with both work piece and machine table. Plus they can be changed in about 10 seconds. Or you can use your standard foam rubber seal. You can even use both if you want to!
