vacup-grip vacuum fixture by Technical Tooling

Our patented, porous granular material is used in the base of our vacuum mill fixtures.  Our system provides a better holding solution than any other product on the market.  Our designs allow even suction across the maximum contact area of the tool, unlike the conventional v-groove fixtures that only pull through localized slotted channels or suction cups.
