A turntable for supporting a disk-shaped flexible ware drives a vacuum cup which also provides a rotating air passageway for creating air flow from a plenum in the turntable to a vacuum cup. The plenum is connected to the upper surface of the turntable via permeable layers such that the disk shaped flexible ware is firmly held onto the turntable during rotation.
