For workpieces that require a lot of cutting through operations, such as frames, panels for engineering, doors, etc. Vacuum pods can be placed on a flat surface, precisely where support of the workpiece is required. The pods are attached by vacuum on the underside to the surface. The workpiece is clamped by vacuum activated at the top of the pods. Workpieces clamped with the Tepas vacuum pods can be fully cut through, even through drilling, tapping and thread milling. GridPods offer the highest clamping force with a sealing cord. PerfoPods allow cut through operations of the workpiece to also be performed above the pod.
