Virtual Industries Introduces New Vacuum-Tweezer Tool

Dec 30, 2009

Virtual Industries Inc., a leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, introduces the Vacula VC-3 heavy duty Vacuum-Tweezer.

The self contained Vacula pick-and-place tool is activated from the top. Simply depress the plunger, place the rubber suction cup on the package to pick and release the plunger, and the part is now firmly grasped by the tool. Place the part on the desired location and depress the plunger a second time to release it. This ESD-safe unit eliminates contamination from skin oils and handling damage to leads. It is ideally suited for loading burn-in trays or tinning leads, and easily handles larger packages. This tool includes the 1/2" (12.7 mm) diameter heavy-duty vacuum pen and two handling tips, a 1/2" (12.7 mm) and a 5/8" (15.88 mm) diameter rubber vacuum cup. Optionally, this tool can be used with our multiple cup pick-up tips or any of our cups on a luer slip probe.

Prices start at US $57.50.
