HANDI-VAC KIT, Static dissipative, with conductive silicone vacuum cups. (1) 1/8" and (1) 1/4" vacuum cups on bent probes and (1) 1/8" and (1) 3/8" vacuum cups on straight probes.
Our HANDI-VAC kits are a low cost pick-and-place tool that can go in everybody’s tool box. These tools are simple to operate:
1. Select a tip with a rubber vacuum cup on a probe that is slightly smaller than the part you want to pick and place. Put the probe snuggly on the tip of the HANDI-VAC tool. Make sure that there is no dust on the rubber vacuum tip. NOTE: Our larger rubber vacuum cups can be placed directly on the HANDI-VAC tip without using a probe.
2. Gently squeeze the HANDI-VAC bulb, place the soft suction cup squarely on the pick-and place part, then relax your squeeze. The part is now firmly gripped.
3. Move the part to where you need it and a second squeeze of the bulb 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 3/32” (2.38mm) 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.
