Vacuum Fixtures

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.

Low  CTE Layup Molds


  • Uniform vacuum across full surface area

  • Conforms to complex geometries

  • Tolerance of +/- 0.003” or better

  • Holds a multitude of substrates from carbon fiber to various metals


  • Sheer holding force is typically more than 2x that of v-groove fixtures

  • Reduces/eliminates part movement and chatter

  • Eliminates the need for clamps and holds

  • As little as 10-second tool and part changeover, with a push of a button 

  • Easily machinable, modifiable, and repairable

  • Increases NC feed trim rate

  • Eliminates tool path interference

  • Reduces scrap rate

  • No expansion or contraction with exposure to moisture

Metal Machining

​With its superior holding strength, VACU-GRIP™ is an ideal workholding solution for metal cutting.  Eliminate tool path interference and horizontal stress from typical clamps and vices.
