Nesting machines often have a table grid. For table grids, suction cups have been offered for centuries. As on Nesting machines often a protection board is used, the conversion on suction cups turn out very elaborate: first the heavy protection board has to be removed, and subsequently it's necessary to close all vacuum openings.
Function of X-Pod:
The X-Pod extraction unit is designed in a way, that it's directly used on the protection board. Ideally the vacuum is only laid onto the areas on which exraction units can be found. X-Pod is thus especially designed for the use in combination with the SCM X-vacuum.
