Virtual Industries Inc., a leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, features a product line of hand tools that replace tweezers or other gripping means for many applications. The PORTA-WAND® ELITE 110-220 VAC Vacuum Tweezer Kit is a Cleanroom-safe tool that handles up to 8" (200 mm) wafers or solar cells. It comes equipped with a detachable 9.6V NiMH rechargeable battery pack, an in-stand charger (P/N VPW-CHARGER-110-220) and one wafer tip.
The detachable battery pack (VPWE-150) contains a rear exhaust filter for the entire tool to ensure better than Class 1 performance. The battery pack can be recharged while attached to the tool or when separated.
The PORTA-WAND ELITE is ideal for handling wafers, solar cells, disk media, flat panels or any item that has a flat hard surface. A “power on” indicator light flashes when the battery pack needs to be recharged or interchanged with a fully charged battery pack. A PUSH-BUTTON provides easy on/off control with a lock to on position. Additionally, an intake air filter (VF-40M-5) is replaceable from the front of the tool.
