Carlson Plotter/Cutter systems can mount to most table tops and level cutting surfaces. For ready-made vacuum tables, we recommend Phillocraft vacuum tables. They are very industrial, simple to assemble, and easy to expand in length and width. They are made of heavy gauge, rolled steel frames with composite hard board hard board drop in tops. You can find out more details and pricing information here.
You can see Phillocraft instructions here or scroll down for a step-by-step picture instructions from our install of a 6’x28′ Phillocraft vacuum table at Prodesign in St. Cloud, MN.
Once table tight, it’s important to level. Identify the high spot on the table. The table feet have up to 7″ travel, using a jack, raise sections until the table is level +/- .25″ over 3 sections. It is important you take the extra effort to do this right. Level tables are much faster and cause less wear and tear.
Finally, once installed — you can add your cutting surface, overhead cabling, plumbing, and blowers. If you have any questions or any problems please contact Carlson Design.
Phillocraft tables work with a wide variety of plumbing, blowers, and cutting surface. For recommendation on sizing the right components for your table, please contact Carlson Design. 918-438-8344.
