Custom Pump Solution Case Study

A major CNC Router Manufacturer approached Becker Pumps and asked us to create a custom solution that offered a quieter vacuum for several of their CNC router sizes. They also needed a short lead time on their orders. We met and exceeded this challenge with our oil-less, dry-running VTLF product line.

Oil-Free Vacuum Pumps

Becker Pumps has become the industry standard, and we offer an extensive range of router table pumps from 1 to 25 horsepower and multi-pump systems up to 75 horsepower. Our oil-free vacuum pumps are very low-maintenance and are incredibly reliable. When routine maintenance is required, all you need are a few tools, the removal of a few bolts, and an hour of labor.

Multi-Vacuum Pump Systems

Advantage-w Woodworking Vacuum PumpsBecker has a full line of central vacuum systems, called the Advantage-W, which we designed to specifically meet the router industry’s changing needs.  These systems work are ideal for spoil board applications, faster cutting speeds, and shorter changeover due to their flexibility.

You can operate the Advantage-W systems incrementally to match your production demand. This means that you run only the necessary pumps, thereby saving precious energy and reducing operating costs. Advantage-W systems are available in 4 Duplex and 2 Triplex models in a space-saving vertical arrangement, giving easy access to any part of the pump.

Each pump in the system includes its own built-in inlet filter connected to an integral manifold that eliminates unsightly piping arrangements and minimizes losses due to piping leaks. Becker also includes a standard central inlet filter for primary filtration.

Oil-Flooded Vacuum Pumps

Typically, you can use our oil-free vacuum pumps on both spoil board and point-to-point router tables. However, many point-to-point applications need a much deeper vacuum to hold down smaller pieces. Our oil-flooded pumps have an end vacuum of 29.9 inches Hg. for applications that require greater hold-down force.

Pump Sizing for CNC Router Tables

Generally speaking, when you want to match the right pump to the table size, you need 5.5 CFM per square foot of surface area for spoil board or nested base tables. Due to the small suction cups utilized by Pod and Rail tables, they require far less flow and typically use one size pump.


Table Size Square Feet CFM Becker Pump Becker Duplex System CFM
4’ x 8’ 32 176 VTLF 2.250 DS 250 W 352
5’ x 10’ 50 275 VTLF 2.400 DS 250 W 352
