The Carter Flip-Pod® Vacuum Clamp System for CNC routers enhances the utility and flexibility of your router. This innovative vacuum clamp system was the winner of the 1994 Challenger Award for Technical Merit at the International Woodworking and Supply Fair in Atlanta, GA.

Adaptable to almost any CNC router equipped with a vacuum pump and table, the Flip-Pod™ Vacuum Clamp system replaces the more traditional spoil-board with a Flip-Pod™ panel made of tough 2" UHMW material supplied by the customer. Into this panel are routed a pattern of circular cavities, each of which can hold a single Flip-Pod™. Each Vacuum Clamp Pod can be placed in either the down position (flush with the top of the panel) or the up position (raised approximately 1 1/8 inch above the panel). In the down position, each pod acts as a vacuum switch, preventing airflow through the cavity. In the up position, the pods allow vacuum to act through the cavity and pod to hold the underside of the material being processed. Thus the material is firmly held in a raised position above the router table surface making it easy to perform edge boring or edge shaping.

The Flip-Pod™ 100 Vacuum Clamp kit includes:
100 Flip-Pod™ assemblies
100 Large gaskets for the panel
6 Retractable locator pins
