Micro-Tec vacuum pick-up tools

Micro-Tec ESD safe vacuum pick-up pen, swiss made
 Micro-Tec ESD safe mini vacuum pick-up tool

Vacuum pick-up tools 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 componets, parts and samples.
The lifting capacity of the vacuum pick-up tools depends on:

  • the vacuum generated in the vacuum pick-up tool
  • the material surface
  • thesize of the pick -up cup; see lifting capacity table.

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.
