Virtual Industries Inc., a leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, now provides a product line of hand tools that replace tweezers or other gripping means for many applications. Ideal for handling wafers, disk media, flat panels, or any item that has a flat, hard surface, the SERIES 3 PORTA-WAND ELITE with 300 mm Wafer Tip VWT-5R-AR, handles up to 12″ (300 mm) wafers, 110-220 VAC.

The SERIES 3 PORTA-WAND ELITE features a detachable battery pack, a safe vacuum level indicator and as well as 5″ round machined Al Teflon coated, push button control. The detachable battery pack (VPWE-150) contains the rear exhaust filter for the entire tool to ensure better than Class l performance. The battery pack can be recharged while attached to the tool or when separated from the tool.

A PUSH-BUTTON provides easy on/off control with a lock to on position.
