Excludes the large stand-alone vacuum presses such as: FT, F/P, FP/C, F Series, S/P Series, ThermoFoil, Heated/Cold and Custom Vacuum Presses – but ask about special freight allowances on these large format vacuum presses! The snap-in-place exhaust port didn’t seat properly, especially when the heavy dust collection hose was attached. If you develop a leak in the bag, the pump will cycle on and off at a constant rate consistent with the size of the leak. Wood CNC Router on the market variety, splint fixed table CNC Router also has a vacuum suction-mounted wood CNC Router. Wire retainers on the Craftsman (right photo) provide simple, yet effective hose storage.
An extensive range of tubular or flat bag continuous use dust collectors, including cyclonic and high temperature units for heavy duty process filtration; mechanical shake filters and small single work station units. Granted that these issues need to be resolved for most projects anyways but vacuum clamping is out of the question until these issues are fixed.
This is very cost effective, doesn’t take up a lot of floor space, and is flexible – you can easily move the vacuum to the dust source. I saw one shop that appeared much cleaner after converting from a distributed collector, at each machine, to a powerful central system. Being inside the case with the rear exhaust port sized as per the drawing will not advesley effect the cooling of the vacuum. The best part is that it is generally used to seal the bag to the mold even if the mold is a flat panel. The key to this clamping system is drawing out pretty much every last bit of air.
The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration says that our skin and respiratory systems can become sensitized to wood dust, meaning that further exposure could result in allergic reactions ranging from eye irritation and nasal dryness to dermatitis and asthma. Biesse machines are equipped with vacuum blocks, which clamp the workpieces during processing. Bosch provides simple and effective bungee-style retainers (right photo) for hose storage and a loop for hanging the power cord. Makes outfitting your woodworking shop with dust collection Fast,Easy and Inexpensive.
The vacuum removes most of the air, therefore, the manufacturers recommend that your substrate be moistened with water. There are also multiple cuff types available for wood collection hoses that allow the hose to connect to a variety of pipe ends. In some cases a cutting tool would come close to a mechanical clamp and present a danger to the operator and equipment if the tool hit the mechanical clamp. To stop this fine dust, buy a high-quality HEPA filter from any store that sells your vacuum brand. Downdraft table: This is simply a specialized table/platform where sanding or other shaping operations can be done almost dust-free.
When we press a board using atmospheric pressure we are using the earth’s atmospheric weight to push our veneer layers against a rigid surface like a foam mold. Maintenance and service for all makes of dust extraction; periodic checks or complete refurbishment/update to minimise depreciation; expert commissioning and re-commissioning service to ensure optimum performance and filter life from new, or following bag or cartridge replacement. These ports allowed me to easily connect Bosch and other brands standard vacuum hoses to the manifold.
In a woodworking vacuum press, the removal of air from the bag and its contents—in this case, wood—is called degassing, and the weight of the atmosphere pressing down on the wood is called atmospheric pressure. There are a few commercially made vacuum chucks available but they are expensive and your requirements may demand a specially built chuck, making it worthwhile in both cases to make your own. I keep my miter and table saws in the garage since they would not fit in my 64 sq. Ft. shop.
