Virtual Industries to Demo New AUTO-SHUT-OFF Feature for Its VACUUM TWEEZER™ Kits at SMTA Guadalajara

Sep 23, 2019

Virtual Industries Inc. today announced that it will exhibit at the SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Oct. 23-24, 2019 at the Expo Guadalajara. The team will demonstrate the new ADJUST-A-VAC™ AUTO-SHUT-OFF ESD-SAFE Kit with Buna-N Static Dissipative Non-Marking Vac (AV-6000A-110) and TWEEZER-VAC™ AUTO-SHUT-OFF ELITE ESD-SAFE Kit with Foot Switch, Buna-N Static (TV-1 500A-ELITE-FS-110). 

A new series of VACUUM TWEEZER™ kits has been added to the Virtual Industries product line with an AUTO-SHUT-OFF feature. The new sensor turns on and off the ADJUST-A-VAC and TWEEZER-VAC, helping users to be more productive, save energy, and extend life of the unit.

Now, when users turn the power switch to the AUTO position, the unit will be off. When you pick up the vacuum pen from its holder, the blue LED vacuum level bar will glow to show that the power is on.

An integrated ten segment bar-graph-display visibly shows the vacuum level present during handling operations. The bar graph will show minimum vacuum level until a part is grasped and then the blue LED bar graph displays the vacuum level presented to the part being handled. Additionally, the vacuum port integrates a user replaceable inlet filter that protects operation of the tool from dust particles – the filter part number to order is VF-40M-5. Kits are available in 110 or 220 volt operation.
