Grid Gasketing is the non-adhesive material used in the perimeter of the CNC Router table/pod itself. Depending on the type of router that is being used, both square and rounded products are available. The goal is to fill the channel width-wise and stand proud above the table roughly 1/16 of an inch. This will create an air-tight seal under your spoil board/fixture board.
In Board Gasketing
In-Board Gasketing products are for creating dedicated fixtures for dedicated long-term parts. The benefits gained from utilizing a proper dedicated fixture are enormous. Placed in the pre-routed channels of a non-porous fixture board, these tools maximize vacuum performance, with accurate z-depth tolerances, extended tooling life, and more. If you are doing repetitive parts, do it with In-Board Gasketing.
On-Board Gasketing is an adhesive-backed material that is placed directly on the surface of a fixture or spoil board. It creates excellent holding power when doing short-run jobs and a dedicated fixture is not desired. The vacuum that is centralized and concentrated to a part like this is not possible without a gasket solution.
For making Dedicated Fixtures for the smallest of parts. Cover gasketing allows for maximum vacuum surface area based on the shape of your specific CAD part.
Tile Gasketing products were created for our Nested Base Manufacturing customers. For those looking for the benefits of a proper gasketing solution, but jobs that are constantly changing, these tiles offer the best solution. By covering an entire MDF porous spoil board with these non-porous tiles, not only is the vacuum less likely to leak from tool paths that are being cut, but the sum of 1/4″ holes creates a universal clamping system that holds entire sheets more effectively.
