ESD Hand Tools from PB Swiss Tools

PB Swiss Tools Electrostatic Dissipating (ESD) screwdrivers safely discharge static electricity, making them an ideal choice when working on computer, electronic and other sensitive devices. The ESD series offers reliable protection to electronic components thanks to a combination of antistatic material and the innovative SwissGrip� handle. SwissGrip� screwdrivers, with their soft handle surface, effortlessly transfer the rotational forces of the hand to the screw, maximizing torque. They are particularly respected in all industries where problem-free, non-tiring work is a requirement. The special structure means that a secure grip is ensured even if hands are wet. PB Swiss Tools ESD series tools are suitable for work on static sensitive electronic components, computer repair, avionics, circuit boards, surface mount technology, and more.

Electrostatic discharge is one of the major causes of device failures in the electronics manufacturing and semiconductor industry. Manufacturers and users of integrated circuits must take precautions to avoid Electrostatic discharge. Electrostatic discharge prevention can be part of the device itself and include special design techniques for device input and output pins. External protection components can also be used with circuit layout and assembly tools, such as the ESD series from PB Swiss Tools.
