Virtual Industries to Demonstrate Vacuum Handling Solutions at SMTAI 2011

The Small Part Handling Kit (TV1000-SP8-BD-MAG1), the company’s show special, is for parts as small as 01005.

The Small Part Handling Kit (TV1000-SP8-BD-MAG1), the company’s show special, is for parts as small as 01005.

Virtual Industries Inc., a leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, announces that it will display several advanced systems in Booth #214 at the upcoming SMTA International Conference & Exhibition, scheduled to take place October 18-19, 2011 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, TX.

The Small Part Handling Kit (TV1000-SP8-BD-MAG1), the company’s show special, is for parts as small as 01005. This general-purpose vacuum handling tool plugs directly into 110 V 50/60 Hz. The compact unit will handle a variety of optics, ball lenses and SMT parts used in the industry today. The kit includes a set of rubber tipped vacuum tips as well as a set of eight small parts tips. As a special at the show, all Small Part Handling Kit purchases will come with a free 2.5X lighted magnifier that runs on three AAA batteries (included).

With the Small Part Handling Kit, parts as small as 0.05" (0.10 mm) are handled without damage. A vacuum tweezer eliminates lost parts associated with mechanical tweezer handling. The long-life diaphragm vacuum pump generates up to 10" of mercury with an open air flow of 2.3 lpm. The unit connects to ground automatically with a three-wire power cord.

The 110 Volt SMD-VAC-HP™ System (V8100A-SP8-BD-MAG1) runs on 12 VDC @ 500mA w/ solenoid. With a precision pump and motor that generates over 15" of mercury, this tool provides additional pick-up power for handling small to very large size components. The compact tower design takes up a small footprint on the bench. An electric eye pen holder on the side automatically shuts the unit off when the vacuum pen is placed in it. Additionally, a jack on the rear of the V8100A series allows the use of a foot switch to control vacuum during pick-and-place operations.


Founded in 1987, Virtual Industries Inc. is headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colo. For more than 20 years, Virtual Industries has been a leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions to the world’s high-technology firms.
