Hold large components
The Big-Mach dimensions are 1020 x 520mm, but it is capable of holding very large components such as standard 8'x4' (2440mm x 1220mm) and 10'x5' boards
It has a sealed internal vacuum chamber meaning it is a stand-alone system that can be mounted and moved where necessary whether in the workshop or attached to a portable workbench 'on-site' at a construction project. The Big Mach when constructed has a number of mounting points and options offering you the end user the greatest degree of flexibility to use this vacuum bed as you see fit.
Multiple Vacuum Sources
The Big Mach can be run from a number of vacuum sources such as a standard domestic 1000watt cylinder vacuum cleaner, a workshop extractor, a dedicated vacuum pump or a venturi attached to a workshop air-compressor or air-line.
Various Workpeice Sizes
The clamping bed comprises of a matrix of vacuum cells of graduated size. This allows various workpiece sizes to be held. Each vacuum cell comprises of a pressure-activated ball valve which controls air-flow to the cell. There is also a surrounding gasket wall of rubber sponge neoprene polymer material which seals the cell against the workpiece creating a vacuum seal. Once air has been evacuated from the cell the vacuum clamp forms a very strong lateral hold on the workpiece. This means it is a very effective clamp for obstruction free and clamp free routing (single pass clamp free all edge routing), belt sanding, planning, biscuiting, panel trimming and use with all hand tools.
