How To Change The Vacuum Bag

It is essential to keep your engraving area clear of debris while running a job. Vision’s Vacuum Chip Removal System helps remove chips & debris produced during engraving. You should empty or change the vacuum bag daily or weekly depending on how often you run your Vision engraving machine. This will insure your Vacuum Chip Removal System is running at optimal levels. This tutorial will show you how to empty or change the vacuum bag on your Vision Vacuum Chip Removal System.

Unplug the vacuum from the electrical outlet and remove the vacuum hose from the top intake port.  See Fig1

Remove the 6 thumb screws on the top of the vacuum and slowly raise the top cover. The vacuum bag is located beneath the top cover.

Slowly remove the vacuum bag from the collection port to prevent the bag from falling off. See Fig2

Use removable tape on both sides of the vacuum bag to keep it in place. In the example, we used blue painter’s tape. See Fig5
