Reading time ( words)

Virtual Industries Inc. today announced plans to exhibit in Booth #1809 at SPIE Photonics West, scheduled to take place Jan 29 - Feb 1, 2018 at The Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. Company representatives will demonstrate the ADJUST-A-VAC ESD Safe Kit and TWEEZER-VAC ELITE.

The ADJUST-A-VAC ESD Safe Kit With ESD Safe Delrin Small Parts Tips and ESD-Safe Vacuum Tips (AV-6000-SP8-BD-110) was developed as a result of customer concerns about manual handling of very thin/delicate substrates, wafers, MEMS devices and other very fragile components. This vacuum-tweezer 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. 

An integrated ten segment bar-graph-display visibly shows the vacuum level present during handling operations. Additionally, the vacuum port integrates a user replaceable inlet filter that protects operation of the tool from dust particles. Kits are available in 110 or 220 volt operation.

The TWEEZER-VAC ELITE (TV-1500-ELITE) was developed in response to customer concerns about firmly grasping critical components and not dropping them due to a vacuum leak. This vacuum tweezer uses an integrated ten segment bar-graph display that visibly shows the vacuum level present during operation. Additionally, the vacuum port integrates a user replaceable inlet filter that protects operation of the tool from dust particles.

The TWEEZER-VAC ELITE is available in various kits depending on your handling application. Kits are available in 110 or 220 volt operation.

An Alternative Approach to Vertical Integration in Manufacturing

07/13/2017 | Richard Kelly, MC Assembly
The days of OEMs owning large vertically integrated manufacturing assets are gone and will probably never return. Oddly, the large vertically integrated manufacturing capability of the OEMs started to be dismantled by the emergence of the EMS companies. Now, some of these same EMS companies are adopting the same, vertically integrated solutions themselves.
