The Backsplash Clamp System
was developed to allow long narrow pieces, such as backsplashes,
to be easily worked on a standard CNC machine taking advantage of
the full range of CNC tooling.
system consists of a series of alternating vacuum based pneumatic
clamping units and suction cups. The clamping units provide the
necessary downward pressure to securely hold the work while the
suction cups support the work between clamps and prevent vibration.
Various combinations of clamping units and suction cups can be used
to accomodate work pieces of different lengths. The pneumatic clamping
units can be actuated automatically by the CNC's air system, or
manually with an air switch.
Pneumatic clamps each provide up to 700lbs of clamping force.
Solid rubber vulcanized friction pads promote superior holding.
