Innovative – ESD Safe – Class 1 – Vacuum Handling Tools at productronica
Virtual Industries Inc., a leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, today announced plans to exhibit in Hall A3, Stand 443 at productronica 2017, scheduled to take place Nov. 14 – 17, 2017 at the Messe München, in Germany. Company representatives will demonstrate the TWEEZER-VAC® ELITE and PORTA-WAND® ELITE Kit.
The TWEEZER-VAC ELITE (TV-1500-ELITE) was developed in response to customer concerns about firmly grasping critical components and not dropping them due to a vacuum leak. This vacuum tweezer uses an integrated ten segment bar-graph display that visibly shows the vacuum level present during operation. Additionally, the vacuum port integrates a user replaceable inlet filter that protects operation of the tool from dust particles.
The TWEEZER-VAC ELITE is available in various kits depending on your handling application. Kits are available in 110 or 220 volt operation.
The PORTA-WAND ELITE Kit (VPWE7000AR-MW8-220) s 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 PORTA-WAND ELITE kit comes with a detachable 9.6V 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 or when separated from the tool.
