How to select and install a vacuum tip and pick and place a part using the pen-vac

These vacuum pens are ideal for SMT assembly or for handling any parts that have a non-porous surface. No batteries or hoses to get in your way. The vacuum cups are Static Dissipative and nonmarking.

  • VACULA 3 Kit With Barbed Anti-Wobble Fitting And 1 Cup - Our most powerful ESD-safe self contained tweezer designed to handle parts when moving them into and out of burn-in trays, test sockets or other component transfer operations.

The PEN-VAC is totally self-contained.  There are no batteries or hoses to get in the way.  Operation is as follows:

  1. Select a tip with a rubber vacuum cup on a probe that is slightly smaller than the part you want to pick and place.  Put the probe snuggly on the tip of the vacuum pen.  Make sure that there is no dust on the rubber vacuum tip.  NOTE: Our larger rubber vacuum cups can be placed directly on the vacuum pen tip without using a probe.
  2. Depress AND hold the button on the side of the tool.
  3. Touch the vacuum tip squarely to the part and release the button. The part is now grasped.
  4. Move the part to where you want it and depress the button again. The part is now released.
