Rave Scientific offers Vacuum Pick-Up Tools that are ideal for picking up lightweight and flat items without touching them by hand or with sharp tools. Delicate items or surfaces won't be scratched. Can be used for coverslips, Si substrates, quartz substrates, small components, parts and samples.
The lifting capacity of the vacuum pick-up tools depends on:
The lifting capacity and lifting time both increases when surfaces are flat and smooth (polished). Vacuum pick-up pens will not work on porous surfaces. The components of the vacuum pick-up tools generally are a body to generate vacuum, interchangeable vacuum needle tips and vacuum cups which fit on the needles to increase lifting capacity
Small, manually operated vacuum pick up tool with a squeeze bulb (no batteries needed) for picking up substrates, coverslip, small components and parts. Ergonomic ESD safe foam covered body with 2 straight tips, 2 bend tips and 4 silicone vacuum cups. Tips are 1.9mm O.D. (16 gauge) and effectively 20mm long. Cups size are 3, 5, 7 and 10mm diameter and can be used either on the tips or directly on the Micro-Tec mini vacuum pick-up tool
The swiss made Micro-Tec pen size, manually operated vacuum pick-up pen is easy to operate and doesn't require power or batteries. Ideal for picking up coverslips, substrates, components, small parts and samples. It is fully ESD safe with a conductive metal body and ESD safe plastic parts. Included with the vacuum pick-up pen are two metal needles (one straigth and one angled at 45 degrees) and 3 ESD safe rubber vacuum cups. Tips are 1.3mm O.D. (18 gauge) and effectively 20mm long. Cup sizes are 4, 6 and 9mm diameter and are intended for use on the needles. High performance piston actuated pump ensures excellent vacuum performance. A small vial of vacuum grease is included to ensure long term optimum lifting capacity.
