Vacuum adsorption work table is using vacuum pump through a pipeline connection under on surface of the wood CNC machines, on the machine work table, there have multiple adsorption on the surface of hole, when we put the wood board on table, the board is firmly attached to the table by the negative pressure produced by the vacuum pump. At this time, the carving machine began to work, the whole process no more than ten seconds, high efficiency, fast speed. Very suitable for wooden doors, board furniture line carving.

While the the vacuum pump is also divided into many types, and its ability and quality of fixing workpiece are also different.

According to different cooling methods, the vacuum pump can be divided into water-cooling vacuum pump and air-cooling vacuum pump, the water-cooling vacuum pump is cooled by circulating water.

The air-cooling vacuum pump produces more noise, compared with water-cooling vacuum pump, it is simple and convenient to use. The vacuum adsorption effect of CNC router is not only related to the vacuum pump power but also flow of vacuum pump. And also related to the design of CNC machine airway.
