Graphic Parts International (Chicago, Ill.) has introduced the Stay-Flat vacuum table for drilling, laminating, CNC routing and other operations. It’s available with cutouts, inserts, disappearing registration guides and lift pins and can be customized to suit almost any need. Table sizes range as high as 10 ft by 25 ft (3m by 7.6m). Available table surfaces include anodized aluminum, stainless steel and, for nonconductive and/or sensitive material applications, phenolic skins in an aluminum honeycomb-cored sandwich construction designed to optimize the table’s strength-to-weight ratio and flatness. Other features include brushless, maintenance-free vacuum motors and blowback devices that provide easy material handling and removal.
