Vacuum Clamping FlipPod®

The Carter Flip-Pod® Vacuum Piece Part Holding System utilizes vacuum power to hold wood, plastic or non-ferrous metal parts for machine processing. That sounds conventional. But this new system offers very special advantages over previous methods. The grid of "pods" fitted into the pod panel surface, provide sure control of vacuum in the desired areas without time wasting "spoil boards" or other methods. The benefits are substantial time savings, cost reduction, and added efficiency.
