Virtual Industries Inc., a supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, is pleased to introduce the Adjust-A-Vac auto-shut-off ESD-safe kit with Buna-N static dissipative non-marking Vac (AV-6000A-110). These vacuum tweezer kits have been added to the product line with an auto-shut-off feature. The new sensor turns on and off the Adjust-A-Vac, helping users to be more productive, save energy, and extend life of the unit.
Now, when users turn the power switch to the Auto position, the unit will be off. When you pick up the vacuum pen from its holder, the blue LED vacuum level bar will glow to show power is on.
The ESD safe kit with ESD safe Delrin small parts tips and ESD-safe vacuum tips 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. The bar graph will show minimum vacuum level until a part is grasped and then the blue LED bar graph displays the vacuum level presented to the part being handled. Additionally, the vacuum port integrates a user replaceable inlet filter that protects operation of the tool from dust particles – the filter part number to order is VF-40M-5. Kits are available in 110– or 220-volt operation.
