Virtual Industries to Introduce New ADJUST-A-VAC for Handling Fragile Components at SEMICON West

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO — Virtual Industries Inc., a leading supplier of manual vacuum handling solutions, today announced that it will exhibit in Booth #935 at SEMICON West 2015, scheduled to take place July 14-16, 2015 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Company representatives will demonstrate the new ADJUST-A-VAC Vacuum Tweezer, developed in response to customer concerns about handling very thin/delicate substrates, wafers, MEMS devices and other very fragile components.

To limit the force applied to a part, this vacuum tweezer allows the operator to adjust the vacuum level from 1-10" of mercury. An integrated ten segment bar-graph-display visibly shows the vacuum level present during operation. The bar graph will show minimum vacuum pressure until a part is grasped and then the bar graph displays the vacuum level presented to the part being handled.

The vacuum port integrates a user replaceable inlet filter to protect operation of the tool.  The ADJUST-A-VAC Vacuum Tweezer is available in various models depending on the handling application. For more information, stop by Booth #935 at SEMICON West or visit
