Virtual Industries: Vacuum Handling Solutions
Vacuum-handling system.
Colorado Springs, CO — Virtual Industries, Inc. is showing several advanced systems including the Small Part Handling Kit (TV1000-SP8-BD-MAG1) for parts as small as 01005. This general-purpose vacuum handling tool plugs directly into 110VAC 50/60Hz. The compact unit will handle a variety of optics, ball lenses and SMT parts used in the industry today.

The kit includes a set of rubber-tipped vacuum tips as well as a set of eight small parts tips for parts as small as 250µ. Also included, is a free 2.5X lighted magnifier that runs on three AAA batteries (included).

A vacuum tweezer eliminates lost parts associated with mechanical tweezer handling. The long-life diaphragm vacuum pump generates up to 10-in. of mercury with an open air flow of 2.3lpm. The unit connects to ground automatically with a three-wire power cord. The PEN-VAC (V8901-LMS-B ) is ESD safe with a 5.75-in. (146mm) silver body kit with three bent and three straight probes with two (2) each 1/8, 1/4, and 3/8-in. (3.2, 6.4, and 9.5mm) diameter. The vacuum pens are suitable for SMT assembly or for handling any parts that have a non-porous surface. The vacuum cups are static dissipative and non-marking, and have no batteries or hoses to get in the way.

Mini Vacuum Pumps for OEM applications (VMP1621CN and VMP1625MX) can be used for applications requiring air flow, vacuum or air pressure. Typical applications include air quality sampling, organic vapor analyzers, equipment requiring a vacuum source, or equipment requiring a pressure source.

The mini vacuum pumps are small, but provide high performance with a motor life of up to 5,000 hours. The pump valves are made of durable stainless steel and the diaphragm is fabric reinforced viton. The pumps come with a 43µ inlet filter and mounting clip.
