Vacuum tables aid many applications by holding various products and substrates firmly in place during additional processes. It can be tricky to hold small parts securely during cutting or milling applications. It is important to know how to use your vacuum table properly for quality processes as well as safety to the operator. Preventing your small parts from slipping and holding cut pieces firmly in place so they don’t fly around and cause injury is important during cutting processes.
Here are a few tips and things to consider for improved product and process quality as well as operator safety when using small vacuum tables.
1) Use a sacrificial layer.
Utilizing a sacrificial layer for your small vacuum table will help to protect your tabletop surface during cutting or milling applications. Sacrificial layers should have matching hole patterns or be permeable to allow air to flow through the layer. It is important to replace damaged sacrificial layers to maintain consistent flatness.
2) Consider the vacuum hole patterns.
Vacuum tables typically have similar hole patterns although smaller tables may require a denser hole patterns to hold smaller parts in place. More vacuum holes to create a denser hole pattern will hold small parts for securely in place and will prevent pieces from flying off the table and causing injury.
3) Use tools designed for small vacuum tables.
It is important to use tools designed for small vacuum tables during your cutting or milling processes as smaller cuts are required. Talk with an experienced vacuum table manufacturer for more tips on the right tools and strategies to preserve your workpiece.
4) Determine your vacuum table strategy.
Plan out your strategy ahead of time and determine the amount of hold down force required for your milling or cutting process. Determining your strategy including proper process set up parameters will allow you to achieve maximum productivity while preventing damage product and injury.

It can be challenging to print on plastic bottles of varying levels of thickness and sizes. Plastic can be especially difficult to print on due to the nonporous nature of the surface which hinders ink adhesion. When printing on plastic cups, a pretreatment application such as with a flame treater may be required to improve the ink adhesion to the plastic surface.
It is best to check with an experienced screen printing specialist for guidance on selecting the right cup printing machine for your application.

UV curing is used in many applications worldwide to improve the adhesion of inks, varnishes, adhesives and coatings on many items such as glass and plastic products. UV curing quickly dries inks or adheres glues within seconds of exposure by altering the molecular structure of the outer coating or polymer. With quick drying times, products can move through their processes quicker greatly improving throughput.
UV curing systems are also very important component in drying processes to greatly improve the quality products with screen printing or coating processes. UV curing instantly dries inks, varnishes and coating to deliver a clean surface without contamination. Other drying systems such as air drying leaves inks susceptible to evaporation with inconsistent results, while the use of chemicals presents challenges with worker safety and purchasing, storing and disposing of dangerous chemicals.
UV curing systems are gaining popularity in many processes as the many benefits of powerful UV radiation are recognized. UV curing systems are completely safe for humans with no risk of exposure to dangerous chemicals or elements, while drastically improving throughput and product quality.
