A preferred embodiment of a negative pressure table-top dust collecting machine in the present invention, as shown in FIGS. 1, 2 and 3, includes a machine box 10, an operation faceplate 20, a fixing base 30, a dust collecting unit 40 and a blower 50 combined together.

The machine box 10 is formed with a closed interior space 11 and has the intermediate portion of its top wall 12 bored with a vertical wind vent 121 and has the upper left and right side of the top wall 12 respectively and symmetrically bored with a plurality of recessed guide grooves 122, which have their bottoms slanting downward toward the wind vent 121. Further, the machine box 10 has its right side wall pivotally assembled with a door plate 13 able to be opened and closed and has its left side all bored with a wind-exhausting opening 14 near the lower side. In addition, the machine box 10 has its left wall and its doorplate 13 respectively provided near the upper side with a grasping member 15 with a recessed grasping groove 151 for facilitating lifting of the machine box 10.

The operation faceplate 20 to be closely assembled on the top wall 12 of the machine box 10 has its upper side formed with a supporting tabletop 21 bored with numerous wind-sucking vents 22 communicating with the wind vent 121 of the machine box 10.

The fixing base 30 is a frame body having its upper side and its lower side respectively hollowed out to form a first opening 31 and a second opening 32 communicating with each other. The first opening 31 has its upper peripheral edge closely combined with the underside of the top wall 12 of the machine box 10 and located at the periphery of the wind vent 121. In addition, the fixing base 30 has its opposite lower side walls respectively extending downward and then bent inward to form an L-shaped plate 33, with a slide groove 34 formed between the L-shaped plate 33 and the side wall of the fixing base 30.

The dust-collecting unit 40 has a rectangular frame body 41 provided with an interior formed with at least one air vent 411. In this preferred embodiment, the frame body 41 has its inner side longitudinally provided with two frame bars 412 to form three air vents 411 defined by the frame body 41 and the two frame bars 412. Further, a dust-collecting bag 42 is assembled on both the frame body 41 at the periphery of each air vent 411 and the frame bar 412, letting each bag mouth 421 of the dust-collecting bags 42 communicate with the air vent 411. Each dust-collecting bag 42 has its surface formed with numerous fine air holes (not shown). The frame body 41 of the dust collecting unit 40 can be slidably guided inward and fitted with the fixing base 30 along the two slide grooves 34 under the opposite sides of the fixing base 30 and closely fitted with the second opening 32 at the bottom of the fixing base 30, letting bag mouths 421 of the dust collecting bags 42 communicate with the second opening 32.

The blower 50 assembled in the interior space 11 of the machine box 10 is provided with a wind intake 51 and a wind outlet 52 that is closely combined with the wind-exhausting opening 14 at the left sidewall of the machine box 10.

The tabletop 21 of the operation faceplate 20 on the topside of the machine box 10 can be used as a support surface for placing and supporting a work piece 60 to be processed. In using, as shown in FIG. 4, only start the blower 50 to pump out the air in the interior space 11 of the machine box 10 through the wind intake 51 and the wind outlet 52 of the blower 50 and through the wind-exhausting opening 14 of the machine box 10, letting the air in the interior space 11 of the machine box 10 decrease gradually to form negative pressure. The dust collecting bags 42 are respectively formed with numerous fine air holes communicating with the interior space 11 of the machine box 10, therefore, when the interior space 11 of the machine box 10 forms negative pressure, the active force of the negative pressure will produce a vacuum suction force at each wind-sucking vent 22 of the work faceplate 20 through the numerous fine air holes and bag mouths 42 of the dust collecting bags 50 and through the first and the second opening 31, 32 of the fixing base 30 as well as the wind vent 121 in the topside of the machine box 10.

Thus, the dust 70 produced during processing of a work piece 60 will be sucked into the guide grooves 122 in the top wall 12 of the machine box 10 by the vacuum suction force produced at each wind-sucking vent 22 of the work faceplate 20. Simultaneously, the dust will be sucked to the wind vent 121 and gathered therein along the downward slanting bottoms of the guide grooves 22 and then the dust will drop into the dust collecting bags 42 of the dust collecting unit 40 through the first and the second opening 31, 32 of the fixing base 30, able to prevent the dust from floating about to pollute a working site and affect workers' health.

In addition, a user can in due time examine the dust collecting condition of the dust collecting bags 42 through changes of the suction force of each wind-sucking vent 22 of the faceplate 20 or by turning open the door plate 13 of the machine box 10 and watching directly. To clean up the dust collecting bags 42, only horizontally remove the whole dust collecting unit 40 out of the fixing base 30 and, after being cleaned, the dust collecting unit 40 is slidably guided in and fitted with the fixing base 30 and the door plate 13 is closed anew, convenient and quick in cleaning of the dust collecting bags.

Since the negative pressure tabletop dust-collecting machine of this invention has the blower 50 and the dust-collecting unit 40 assembled in the interior of the machine box 10, it is needless to additionally provide wind-sucking pipes and a bottom base. Therefore, the whole volume of the dust-collecting machine can be greatly reduced not to take much space. To sum up, the negative pressure tabletop dust-collecting machine of this invention is simple in structure, economical in producing cost and convenient to be moved around, having practicability and conforming to economical gain.

While the preferred embodiment of the invention has been described above, it will be recognized and understood that various modifications may be made therein and the appended claims are intended to cover all such modifications that may fall within the spirit and scope of the invention.
