Vacuum Pump





The Becker 10hp pump with accessories comes standard with our Orion and Pegasus series. It has approx 17Cf with approx. 20Hg fully sealed.










In the case where a second pump is ordered, or comes standard with a our 23' table machines, the two pumps are stacked on top of each other on a steel frame to save space.
Pre-Installation Guide

ALL new customers will receive detail Pre-installation manual/guide well in advanced covering delivery schedule, preparations and requirements.

However, below are some basic steps for reference only.



1. You will be informed in advanced regarding your cnc delivery schedule.

2. If required, you must schedule a rigger to be onsite to unload and position the cnc into your facility

3. Once the cnc is in place, you must arrange for the power, air, dust extraction to be connected to the cnc. See Specifications tab above for details.

4. Ensure that you have the software, tooling, materials available for the cnc set-up/training. See Software-Tooling menu for details.

5. Once all items in No. 4 above are in place, fill in the cnc setup page request from the Pre-installation guide you received via email and fax it to us.

6. We will confirm the setup date(s) requested. Your cnc is expected to be ready for production at the end of the setup-training session.
