This precision ground Replaceable Top Plate works in conjunction with 2L Inc. Vac-Vise Modular Vacuum Chucks. It covers the surface of the Vacuum Chuck to allow drilling through and milling around the periphery of workpieces without damaging the surface of the Vacuum Chuck. The hole pattern of the Replaceable Top Plate is identical to the Vac-Vise Vacuum Chuck for quick set up and consistent work piece placement.
The Replaceable Aluminum Top Plate fastens securely to the 2L Vacuum Chuck with the included brass screws which can be machined without causing damage to the standard cutting tools being used to machine the workpiece. The 2L patent pending Vac-Vise Vacuum Chuck System offers the most comprehensive system for vacuum workholding of a variety of parts. The modular vacuum chucks and accessories, such as the Replaceable Aluminum Top Plate, Adjustable Workstops and Edge Clamps allow for easy prototyping and fast and repeatable set up for production environments.
