From woodworking tool specialist Padsmore comes a new block system equipped with a vacuum-indicating sensor with lighting. The block system is a 2018 IWF Challengers Award finalist.
 
The block indicates vacuum level - displaying in red or green lighting. With this visual light, Padsmore says the operator and other maintenance staff will be able to quickly assess the presence or absence of the suction and know if it is safe to run the machine.
 
Padsmore has been manufacturing suction products and accessories for CNC machines, edgebanders, panel saws, and other products since 2002. The company serves Canada, the U.S., South America, Asia, and Europe.
