Virtual Industries Introduces New Low-Cost Vacuum-Tweezer Tool

Feb 09, 2009

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO � February 9, 2009 � Virtual Industries, Inc., a leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, introduces the self-contained manually operated PEN-VAC PRO-SERIES Vacuum-Tweezer for handling SMD packages, optics or other small parts during assembly. The tweezer has no vacuum hoses to get in the way and no batteries to replace.

This PEN-VAC� PRO-SERIES vacuum tweezer is sold with four cups and probes. Pick-up tip sizes are 1/8" (3.18 mm), 1/4" (6.35 mm) and 3/8" (9.53 mm) vacuum cups on bent probes and one straight probe with a 1/4" (6.35 mm) diameter vacuum cup.

The tool is made of all ESD-safe plastic materials. Operation is simple:

  1. Place a pick-up tip slightly smaller than the part on the front of the tool.

  2. Depress the button on the side of the tube to expel air from the tool.

  3. Place the cup flatly on the part to be picked up.

  4. Releasing the button now draws air back into the tool, creating suction. The part is now firmly grasped by the suction.

  5. Move the part to the desired position and push the button a second time to release the part.

Prices start at US $29.93 with quantities of 25 or more (order number V8910-9GR-B).
