Virtual Industries Introduces New Vacuum-Tweezer Tool

Sep 25, 2008

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO � September 24, 2008 � Virtual Industries Inc., a leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, introduces the compressed air powered STEALTH-VAC.

The whisper quiet STEALTH-VAC operates directly on 30 to 70 psi compressed air or nitrogen. The normally open Stealth-Vac vacuum pen contains a venturi vacuum generator. With compressed air supplied at the rear of the tool, the pickup tip has constant vacuum available.

To handle a part:

  • Attach a vacuum tweezer tip slightly smaller than the part you need to handle.

  • Merely touch the vacuum tip squarely to the part. The part is now grasped.

  • Move the part to desired location and press the control button to release it

This kit includes 6 ft of 1/16" coiled vacuum hose, a 1/8" NPT to 1/16" barb adapter for the supply line, and the STEALTH-VAC vacuum generating handle.

Prices start at US $92.52.
