Virtual Industries has announced that it will display advanced systems for part handling in Booth #1935 at the Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) East exposition, scheduled to take place June 18-20, 2013 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. Demonstrated at the show, the Small Part Handling Kit for parts as small as 200 μm (TV1000-SP8-BD) is a general-purpose vacuum handling tool that plugs directly into 110 V (50/60 Hz). This compact unit will handle a variety of optics, ball lenses and SMT parts used in the industry today. An optional tip handles parts as small as 0.004" (0.10 mm) without damage. Vacuum tweezers eliminate lost parts associated with mechanical tweezer handling. The long-life diaphragm vacuum pump generates up to 10" of mercury with an open air flow of 2.3 lpm. The unit connects to ground automatically with a three-wire power cord.

Also to be displayed, the Mini Vacuum Pumps for OEM applications (VMP1621CN and VMP1625MX) can be used for applications requiring air flow, vacuum or air pressure. Typical applications include air quality sampling, organic vapor analyzers, equipment requiring a vacuum source or equipment requiring a pressure source. The mini vacuum pumps are small, but provide high performance with a motor life of up to 5,000 hours. The pump valves are made of durable stainless steel and the diaphragm is fabric reinforced viton. The pumps come with a 43 μm inlet filter and mounting clip.
