Virtual Industries Brings Its Part Handling Solutions to the Midwest for the ATX Expo

Jul 09, 2013

Virtual Industries Inc., a leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, announces that it will exhibit in Booth #920 at the Automation Technology Expo (ATX) Midwest, scheduled to take place September 10-12, 2013 at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, IL. Representatives from Virtual Industries will demonstrate two state-of-the-art part handling systems.

The TWEEZER-VAC System with Small Parts Tips and Lighted Magnifier (TV-1000-SP8-BD-MAG1) 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 parts used in the industry today. This kit includes rubber tips for larger items and a set of small parts tips that handle items as small as 150 microns.  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.  An optional tip allows handling parts as small as 100 μm.

Also on display, the SMD-VAC-HP System with Foot Switch, Vacuum Pens, Small Parts Tips and Magnifier (V8100A-SP8-BD-MAG1) runs on 12 VDC @ 500mA w/ solenoid. With a precision pump and motor that generates more than 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. A jack on the rear of the V8100A series allows use of a foot switch to control vacuum during pick-and-place operations. An optional tip allows handling parts as small as 100 μm.
