Virtual Industries to Exhibit Advanced Equipment at SEMICON West 2009

Jun 23, 2009

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO — May 2009 — Virtual Industries Inc., a leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, announces that it will display several advanced systems in booth 817 at the upcoming SEMICON West exhibition, scheduled to take place July 14-16, 2009 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif.

The Small Part Handling Kit (TV1000-SP8-BD) is for parts as small as 250 microns. This general-purpose vacuum handling tool plugs directly into 110 V 50/60 Hz. The compact unit will handle a wide variety of optics, ball lenses and SMT parts used in the industry today.

Parts as small as 0.010" (0.2 5mm) are handled without damage. 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 STEALTH-VAC ELITE (VVSV-NC-KIT) operates directly on 30 to 50 psi compressed air or nitrogen. The normally closed Stealth-Vac Elite vacuum pen contains a whisper quiet venturi vacuum generator that is activated only when the control button is depressed. This helps conserve factory compressed air when the tool is not in use. The vacuum level can be controlled by adjusting the input pressure.

The normally closed Stealth Vac ELITE Kit is supplied with a set of nine vacuum tip # VCS-9-B, 6' of 1/16" air hose, a 1/8 NPT to 1/16" barb adaptor for the supply line, the vacuum generating handle and a VMB-3 holder for the wand.

PORTA-WAND ELITE (VPWE7000AR-MW8) with PEEK wafer tip VMWT-C handles up to 8" (200 mm) wafers or solar cells. The kit comes complete with a detachable 9.6 V NiMH rechargeable battery pack, an in-stand charger (P/N VPW6000-CHRG) and one wafer tip. The detachable battery pack (VPWE-150) contains the rear exhaust filter for the entire tool to ensure better than Class 1 performance. The battery pack can be recharged when attached to the tool or when separated from the tool. Ideal for handling wafers, solar cells, disk media, flat panels, or any item that has a flat hard surface. A power on indicator flashes when the battery pack needs to be recharged or interchanged with a fully charged battery pack. A PUSH-BUTTON provides easy on/off control with a lock to on position. An intake air filter (VPW6000-FIL-5) is replaceable from the front of the tool.

The Push Button Vacuum Wafer Wand (VWP-500) is an ESD safe, low cost solution. The lightweight aluminum ½" diameter handle accepts any of Virtual’s press fit tips for handling solar cells or semiconductor wafers. This normally open vacuum wafer pen allows you to pick up a wafer by touching the vacuum tip to the surface of the part. A slight press of the button releases the solar cell or wafer. The unique design eliminates internal O-rings for years of maintenance free operation.
