Vacuum Fixtures

Our state-of-the-art workholding product, VACU-GRIP™, achieves the strongest holding force of any vacuum fixture on the market. Our technology is based on an engineered porous granular media that can conform to any given part's contours, providing structural support while allowing an even vacuum throughout the entire surface area.

Layup Molds

Our 350° F autoclave capable layup molds are unrivaled. Their high-performance capabilities are ideal for short-run programs and prototyping. We can achieve low CTE nearly equivalent to carbon fiber but at a fraction of Invar's cost.
