There are many instances in which a heated vacuum table would be beneficial, or even necessary. A vacuum table that provides consistent heating in one process may be beneficial for applications that involve curing composite components or debulking for compaction and removal of any trapped air.
Heated vacuum tables can also be used to manufacture thin layers of film or lacquer. Combining heat with precision flatness of +/- .001”, your vacuum table will provide superior performance for foils, panels or several other flat surfaces. Heated vacuum chuck systems with simple temperature controls and even distribution of heat give manufacturers control over their process with user friendly adjustable processes.
Systematic Automation Manufactures Heated Vacuum Tables
Systematic Automation manufactured one of the very first heated vacuum tables, with uniform heat distribution and vacuum suction with adjustable analog heat controls reaching temperatures over 500° F. All of our vacuum tables provide superior flatness at +/- .001” flatness.
Inline adjustable vacuum gates provide adjustable vacuum suction in addition to adjustable heat controls. Systematic Automation manufactures vacuum tables in a wide variety of standard sizes with custom sizes available. Auxiliary equipment and options such as bases, modular clamping systems, and vacuum pumps can also be custom designed to your specifications.

Automated cutting systems typically use vacuum tables when cutting most types of fabric to hold the fabric firmly in place for accurate cutting. Plotting and cutting systems use heavy duty vacuum pumps to ensure that your desired cut is what you get, with consistent accuracy. Vacuum pumps can be designed to work in separate zones when required, activating specific areas of the table with vacuum pressure.
Some fabrics may need a sacrificial layer to help hold the fabric while cutting, then discarded after the cutting is complete. These layers may consist of polypropylene, PVC, Porex or a high-density polyethylene (HDPE). This sacrificial layer is designed with your table to not reduce any suction.
Most plotter and cutter systems will have a rotary blade that is 28mm in diameter to easily cut fabric without pushing it downward. This allows for the blade to have minimal contact with the vacuum table, which can extend the life of the sacrificial layer.
For a sturdy material, you may need carbide blades to cut through something like carbon fiber. Typically, plotter cutter systems are used for cutting canvas in industries manufacturing large pieces of cut fabrics such as boat sails and require only the standard blade.

Vacuum Table Pumps
Depending on your operation, two types of vacuum pumps are available. Each supply maximum vacuum force holding your product securely in place for precision, even in pressurized processes.
The Rotary Vane pump, or high flow pump, is used with your CNC vacuum table to allow for minimal leakage with no reduction in vacuum force. High flow Rotary Vane pumps will pull with slightly less force that the diaphragm-type of vacuum pumps.
A Diaphragm style pump provides a tight seal between your substrate and the CNC vacuum table, maximizing holding power with high vacuum force. While the diaphragm pump provides maximum holding force, even the slightest leak will reduce the holding force.

Ultraviolet (UV) light is used in many applications to instantly cure or dry inks, coatings and adhesives. When UV light is exposed to these coatings, a photochemical reaction takes place, drying the coating very quickly, creating a strong outer bond. UV curing is used in many manufacturing processes as a very efficient way to speed up printing, drying and curing applications.
Instant Results with UV Curing
Because the UV light creates the photochemical reaction so quickly, the inks or coatings dry evenly and without loss of volume due to evaporation. This improves the quality of the process, creating consistent products, whether used in screen printing or critical parts manufacturing for industrial purposes.
UV Curing Improves Efficiencies
If one of your continual improvement goals is to become more efficient, utilizing a UV curing process where printing, drying or curing is required will add valuable time saving efficiencies. UV Curing of outer coatings can occur instantly, in a matter of seconds. Compared to air or heat drying of inks, or spraying parts or units with chemicals, the UV process is much faster and requires no use of volatile chemicals.
UV Curing Aids Several Industrial Applications
Systematic Automation is experienced in developing effective and efficient UV Curing Systems for a wide array of industrial applications, including:
· UV Curing Screen Printing – UV Screen printing is available for flat or cylindrical products, from ball point pens to keg sized containers. Vacuum systems can be incorporated into UV curing systems for all over 360° cure area.
· Automotive – UV Curing is used on automotive parts such as visual knobs or buttons with printed words or labels. Exposing these parts to UV radiation creates a strong outer coating that is stain and scratch resistant.
· Aerospace – UV Curing provides strong durable parts when required in extreme conditions. UV Curing is fast, efficient, and reliable.
· Marketing- UV Curing is used in printing a wide variety of items from trinkets, to clothing and large banner or yard signs.
· Several other industrial and manufacturing processes
