ADJUST-A-VAC® ESD Safe Kit.

ADJUST-A-VAC® ESD Safe Kit.

Virtual Industries Inc., a leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, today announced plans to exhibit in Booth #1678 at MD&M West, scheduled to take place Feb. 6-8, 2018 at the Anaheim Convention Center in CA. Company representatives will demonstrate the ADJUST-A-VAC® ESD Safe Kit and TWEEZER-VAC® ELITE.

The ADJUST-A-VAC® ESD Safe Kit With ESD Safe Delrin Small Parts Tips and ESD-Safe Vacuum Tips (AV-6000-SP8-BD-110) allows the operator to adjust the vacuum level from just below atmospheric pressure to up to ten inches of mercury depending on the fragility of the part being handled. The vacuum tweezer system was developed as a result of customer concerns about manual handling of very thin/delicate substrates, wafers, MEMS devices and other very fragile components.

An integrated ten segment bar-graph-display visibly shows the vacuum level present during handling operations. Additionally, the vacuum port integrates a user replaceable inlet filter that protects operation of the tool from dust particles. Kits are available in 110 or 220 volt operation.

The TWEEZER-VAC ELITE (TV-1500-ELITE) was developed in response to customer concerns about firmly grasping critical components and not dropping them due to a vacuum leak. This vacuum tweezer uses an integrated ten segment bar-graph display that visibly shows the vacuum level present during operation. Additionally, the vacuum port integrates a user replaceable inlet filter that protects operation of the tool from dust particles.

The TWEEZER-VAC ELITE is available in various kits depending on your handling application. Kits are available in 110 or 220 volt operation.
