Virtual Industries to Exhibit Small Part Handling Tools at SEMICON West

Jun 11, 2018

STEALTH-WAND ELITE Kit.

STEALTH-WAND ELITE Kit.

Virtual Industries Inc., a leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, today announced plans to exhibit in Booth #924 at SEMICON West, scheduled to take place July 10-12, 2018 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. Company representatives will demonstrate the ADJUST-A-VAC® ESD Safe Kit and STEALTH-WAND ELITE Kit.

The ADJUST-A-VAC® ESD Safe Kit With ESD Safe Delrin Small Parts Tips and ESD Safe Vacuum Tips (AV-6000-SP8-BD-110) allows the operator to adjust the vacuum level from just below atmospheric pressure to up to ten inches of mercury depending on the fragility of the part being handled. The vacuum tweezer system was developed as a result of customer concerns about manual handling of very thin/delicate substrates, wafers, MEMS devices and other very fragile components.

An integrated ten segment bar-graph-display visibly shows the vacuum level present during handling operations. Additionally, the vacuum port integrates a user replaceable inlet filter that protects operation of the tool from dust particles. Kits are available in 110 or 220 volt operation.

The STEALTH-WAND ELITE Kit (VVSW-NC-MW8) 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. At 50 psi input the vacuum level is 21 InHg with 2 lpm of free air flow, at 30 psi input the vacuum level is 18 InHg with 1.75 lpm of free air flow and at 10 psi input the vacuum level is 3 InHg with .75 lpm of free air flow. This feature is important for handling thin wafers.

The normally closed STEALTH-WAND ELITE Kit is supplied with:

  • 6 feet of 1/16 inch air hose

  • A 1/8 NPT to 1/16" barb adaptor for the supply line

  • The vacuum generating handle

  • A VMWT-C wafer tip

  • A VBM-4 wafer wand holder
