Virtual Industries Inc., the leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, offers a variety of vacuum tweezer kits that are ideal for handling residue sensitive items such as lenses and optical filters. These affordable kits include the HANDI-VAC®, PEN-VAC®, TWEEZER VAC, and ADJUST-A-VAC™.
The HV-KIT-II-PUR HANDI-VAC Kit with 5 Probes + Cups offers one of the lowest cost pick-and-place tools available on the market today. This kit includes a vacuum-bulb tool with three bent probes, two straight probes, and PureAClean™ blue, non-marketing vacuum cups. The HANDI-VAC operates similar to a tweezer tool where users will squeeze the vacuum bulb and place the suction cup onto the part, relaxing the squeeze to firmly grip the part and squeezing again to release.
The V8901-HLM-PUR PEN-VAC Kit with six Probes + Cups includes a PEN-VAC® metal body kit with three bent and three straight probes and two PureAClean™ blue, non-marking vacuum cups. With no batteries required, this vacuum pen is ideal for handling lenses and optical filters. It works by pushing the vacuum button, placing the suction cup on the part and then releasing the button to firmly grip the part.
The TV-1000 TWEEZER VAC Kit offers a long-life pump with quiet operation and features a push-button release vacuum pick-up handle, perfect for lens and optical filter handling. Both the 110 and 220 V models come with 5' of coiled vacuum hose and seven PureAClean™ blue, non-marketing vacuum cups.
Yet another option for optics and lens handling tools is the AV5000-PUR10-110 ADJUST-A-VAC™ VACUUM TWEEZER™ Kit. This device allows the user to adjust the vacuum level from just below atmospheric pressure to up to 10" of mercury, making it a multi-purpose tool. This kit is ESD-safe and features an adjustment knob for vacuum level, replaceable inlet filter, and optional foot switch system. The kit includes coiled vacuum hose, push-button vacuum pen, and 10 PureAClean™ vacuum tips.
