Product information

Schmalz has developed a new hose-free vacuum clamping system for CNC processing machines. The VCBL-HD clamps onto 1-circuit and 2-circuit console tables and ensures precise milling results thanks to its high holding force and lateral force absorption. It replaces its predecessor VCBL-A: this previously held rough surfaces of heavy solid wood panels with its special friction pad made of emery cloth, but was too abrasive for sensitive surfaces. At the same time, the VCBL-HD supplements the previous VCBL-K1 and K2 series, which are designed for lighter and more sensitive workpieces.

The new vacuum block thus combines the advantages of the two VCBL versions available to date: Its main body made of aluminum provides sufficient stability even for heavy sheets and high cutting forces. Thanks to its adaptable sealing gasket, its replaceable suction plate safely fixes even structured surfaces. Even though the suction cup offers enough holding force for solid wood, solid surface and laminated materials, its contact surface is gentle enough to clamp even thin and delicate surfaces without damage. In contrast to the previous portfolio, the VCBL-HD with its wide range of applications saves many a setup operation.

For even more flexibility, Schmalz has achieved rotatable suction plates. This allows the vacuum block to adapt perfectly to different workpiece geometries. An integrated NFC tag reveals all relevant product data, such as spare part numbers, if required - via smartphone in the Schmalz ControlRoom app.
