Virtual Industries Brings Smart Handling Solutions to SEMICON West

Jun 13, 2017

TWEEZER-VAC® Elite and ADJUST-A-VAC® Elite.

TWEEZER-VAC® Elite and ADJUST-A-VAC® Elite.

Virtual Industries Inc., a leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, today announced that it will exhibit in Booth #7313 at SEMICON West, scheduled to take place July 11-13, 2017 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. Company representatives will demonstrate the TWEEZER-VAC® Elite and ADJUST-A-VAC® Elite.

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.

The ADJUST-A-VAC Elite (AV-5000-MW8) was developed in response to customer concerns about manual handling of very thin/delicate substrates, wafers, MEMS devices and other very fragile components. This vacuum tweezer 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.

An integrated ten segment bar-graph-display visibly shows the vacuum level present during handling operations. Like the TWEEZER-VAC Elite, the system features an integrated bar-graph display and 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.
