Virtual Industries Inc., a leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, announces that it will display several advanced systems for part handling in Booth #1360 at the upcoming Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) West Exposition, scheduled to take place February 12-14, 2013 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.
Demonstrated at the show, the Small Part Handling Kit for parts as small as 200 microns (TV1000-SP8-BD) is a general purpose vacuum handling tool that plugs directly into 110 Volt (50/60 Hz). This compact unit will handle a wide variety of optics, ball lenses and SMT parts used in industry today. An optional tip handles parts as small as 0.004" (0.10mm) without damage. Vacuum tweezers eliminate 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.
Additionally, company representatives will highlight products from its sister company – Prime Axis Manufacturing (www.primeaxismfg.com). Prime Axis Manufacturing uses world-class CNC machining equipment to produce high quality machined parts.
