CNT Motion Standard Vacuum System with Blower
CNT Motion’s standard vacuum system features a plenum grid made of aluminum-cast tool and jig plate. Aluminum is the material of choice of all manufacturers of heavy-duty machines due to its greater stability than plastics or composites. Two available blower styles are geared toward specific applications: a 25-HP FPZ regenerative blower; or a 7.5-HP Rietschle Zephyr claw pump.
The machines shown below are examples of fixturing and clamping systems we've provided to CNT Motion manufacturers over the years.
