Point of Source Extraction

Point-of-source capture vacuums are a great way to collect a bi-product that is generated in the following applications:

  • Milling
  • Shaving
  • Cutting
  • Stamping
  • Etc.

By having the vacuum collection point close to the machining point, you can collect a significant percentage of the by-product that is generated.

These recovery vacuums collect various materials including:

  • Metal Chips
  • Aluminum Extrusions
  • Wood Chips
  • Plastic Shavings
  • And More.

From balancing machines to metal stamping operations to medical implant manufacturing, the point of source capture has a place in helping your process run more efficiently and with less downtime.

Over the years, we have installed chip recovery vacuum systems on hundreds of CNC machines, heavy stamping operations, automotive armature balancing machines and many other types of automated pieces of equipment. We have also replaced inefficient dust collection systems and chip conveyors that were misapplied.

Our line of industrial vacuums are made here in the United States and we have the toolsservice, and support teams that many OEM vacuum companies do not.
