Our vacuum-bulb type tools are the lowest cost pick-and-place tools available. These tools operate very similar to a tweezer. Simply squeeze the vacuum bulb, place the soft suction cup to the part to be handled, then relax your squeeze and the part is firmly gripped. A second squeeze releases the part.
Applications for this tool include SMT parts, metal parts, plastic parts or any item having a smooth-nonporous-surface that the rubber vacuum tweezer tip can seal against. This tool can be used with any of our rubber vacuum cups ranging in size from 3/8” (9.53mm) to 3/4” (19.05mm) in diameter. Use the larger cups to pick up larger and heavier parts. For better precision in part placement see our PEN-VAC or PEN-VAC PRO-Series self contained vacuum pens.
