Welding Track Vacuum Mounting System
The Gullco vacuum mounting systems are designed to firmly hold the KAT® Rigid and Flex Tracks in position on magnetic and non-magnetic materials. The systems are rugged and dependable while incorporating a light weight design for portability. There are Vacuum/ KAT® carriage packages specifically designed for automatic welding and cutting applications.
PORTABLE VACUUM UNIT
Comprised of electric motor driven, 2.4 cfm capacity vacuum pump mounted on cylindrical safety reservoir. Complete with vacuum gauge, filter, non-return valve, necessary fittings and 10 ft. (3048 mm) of flexible hose with quick disconnect coupling. *Recommended 3 pieces of GK-165-054 Rigid or GK-192-F-054-2 Flexible Track per vacuum pump.
VACUUM MANIFOLD BLOCK MOUNTING UNIT
Comprised of two vacuum cups, manifold block and mounting pad. The manifold has openings at each end and at the centre of each side for fittings required in assemblies such as hose connectors, couplings, valves and plugs. VACUUM MANIFOLD ASSEMBLIES Link any number of Vacuum Block Mounting Units to provide a complete, in-line track mounting system. The end units are supplied with appropriate fittings for attachment to the pump or the next series of mounting units, while all “in-between” units have hose connectors on each side.
FOR MOUNTING GULLCO RIGID KAT® TRACK
Gullco can supply a ready-to-use “kit” to vacuum mount KAT® Track, providing manifold block mounting units for mounting on 30″ (761 mm) centers along with all appropriate hoses, fittings, etc.
For convenience, three “Kits” are available for mounting standard 48″, 96″ and 120″ (1219, 2438 and 3048mm) lengths of KAT® Track. They are described at right. It should be noted that these kits are supplied for use only with the designated track length.If lengths are to be joined, interconnecting fittings must be ordered.
3 lengths of 120″ (3048mm) track can be handled by on vacuum pump (Model GV-168-50) depending on work surface finish.
FOR MOUNTING GULLCO KAT® FLEX TRACK
Gullco Flex-Track is 8ft. (2438 mm) and has holes for at-tachment of manifold block mounting units and stainless steel mounting brackets (photo at left). In some applications, the number of manifold block units may be safely reduced by using brackets so the number of each supplied will vary according to application requirements. For convenience, two Kits are available for vacuum mounting KAT® Flex-Track, one meeting minimum stiffness requirements, the other provid-ing standard stiffness.
