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

The BULB-VAC with anti-wobble cone and 3/4

The BULB-VAC with anti-wobble cone and 3/4" ESD vacuum cup (BVJ-075-AW-ESD) is designed for enhanced functionality when handling INTEL LGA CPU products.

Virtual Industries Inc., a leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, announces that it will display several advanced systems in Booth #628 at the upcoming IPC APEX Expo, scheduled to take place February 28 - March 1, 2012 at the San Diego Convention Center in California.

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 BULB-VAC with anti-wobble cone and 3/4" ESD vacuum cup (BVJ-075-AW-ESD) is designed for enhanced functionality when handling INTEL LGA CPU products. This tool improves placement accuracy when picking processor chips from a shipping tray and  placing into precision sockets.

The BULB-VAC features an anti-wobble stiffener cone and a 3/4" diameter ESD-safe conductive rubber silicone vacuum cup. The rubber vacuum cup is required for proper operation.  Virtual Industries’ vacuum-bulb type tools are the lowest cost pick-and-place tools available, and are simple to operate. Overall dimensions are 3.4" (86.4mm) long by 1.46" (37.1mm) wide. All materials are ESD safe.
