A vacuum holds the foam block securely in place on the cutting table during the cutting process. Until now, this role has been fulfilled by two to six fans (depending on the size of the plant) that are installed within the table to draw air through a perforated belt beneath the block.

In more recent Bäumer machinery, however, an external vacuum unit is responsible for securing the block in place. This can be found beneath the table and is connected to it by four hoses.



Clean and quiet

More power, more convenience

The hugely improved suction power is capable of securing even large foam blocks in place: This high volume flow minimizes any loss of power caused by air leaks and ensures the plant is always running as efficiently as possible.

The exposed position of the vacuum unit makes it readily accessible for maintenance and repair work, while the effective insulation of the unit reduces noise levels considerably.

What’s more, the troublesome table vibrations that used to occur as a result of the rigid connection between the fans and the perforated belt are now a thing of the past.

Unlike before, when the extracted air was blown into the space beneath the plant, it is now fed away through hoses, thus dispensing with irritating drafts and swirling dust.

Start planning your conversion now!

Think about upgrading your plant in good time: By scheduling your conversion during a vacation closedown or typically quieter period, you will be safeguarding yourself against the consequences of downtime or production stoppages.
