Quality Vacuum Systems Support CNC Applications

Computer numerically controlled (CNC) applications provide consistency and reliability to many precision processes. Quality manufactured vacuum systems improve many CNC applications with maximum holdfast vacuum force during critical routing and cutting applications. CNC vacuum tables are utilized in a multitude of processes to provide a reliable hold down method during many applications including: 

  • Printing 
  • Plotter Cutter
  • Surface Grinding
  • Engraving
  • Paper Making
  • Thermoforming
  • Ultrasonic Cutting
  • Sail Making
  • Material Handling Systems
  • Grinding
  • Milling

Quality made vacuum systems provide consistent flatness and holdfast vacuum force during these critical processes and many others. CNC hold down methods must be reliable, consistent and economical. Holdfast vacuum systems provide the process support needed of CNC applications. 

Systematic Automation Manufactures Quality Vacuum Systems

Improve Adhesion of Plastics with Flame Treatment


Plastic products are generally not conducive to bonding with coatings or varnishes as the surface is very nonporous.  When applying outer coatings such as in a screen printing operation, or applying lacquers, varnishes or laminates, plastic products must be treated first in order to bond with the application. Flame treatment machines solve this problem and successfully prepare plastic products for adhesion with additional materials.
Flame treatment machines alter the surface of plastic by literally changing the molecular structure of the surface making it accepting to adhesion with other materials, all without visually changing or damaging the plastic part in any way.  Flame treatment machines quickly expose the plastic to a high heat flame which is all that is needed to alter the outer surface, allowing coatings to adhere to the plastic surface.
Systematic Automation Offers Proven Flame Treatment Systems

Flame treatment systems are proven to be highly effective and cost-efficient, in addition to being safer than other methods used to improve adhesion such as use of chemicals. Flame treatment machines can be incorporated into your additional processes such as screen printing with parts passing from one station to the next with no interruption. Products quickly move through the flame treating machine which provides 360° of exposure in seconds, then right into additional processes such as screen printing.  

With the right flame treatment equipment, there is no need to purchase, store or dispose of hazardous chemicals to alter the surface of your plastic products. Flame treating is effective, cost-efficient and safe for employees. Flame treatment also provides a very consistent process as opposed to applying chemicals to products which would result in uneven applications and evaporation affecting quality.

Systematic Automation manufactures flame treatment systems, screen printing machines, UV curing systems and screen printing machines for your one stop automated solution.  We help many industries to realize maximum throughput and improved quality with flame treatment systems including:

  • Screen Printing
  • Bonding
