Manual Wands / Tweezers

Manual wands (tweezers)

Wafer tweezers

These manual wands, or tweezers, allow manual handling of a wafer without excessive contact. Fragile wafers are gently but securely gripped by an optically polished contact surface. This ensures that particle counts are greatly reduced and there is no risk of scratching. PEEK, ESD PEEK and PPS materials are available to suit the application, with a temperature limit of 130°C, while the M800 Vespel tipped stainless steel tweezers can withstand temperatures up to 288°C. Lockable versions are available for increased security of handling.

 

 

ESD safe wafer handling vacuum wands

Teflon wafer handling vacuum wands: F series wand bodies are manufactured in Teflon and are the cleanest means of wafer handling. Tips are available in PCTFE, PEEK, Vespel and stainless steel. The tips are optimally sized for each wafer diameter, ensuring that contact is both minimal and secure. The contact surface itself is optically polished, providing excellent adhesion to a wafer. Three body styles are available – fixed tip, collect joint and swivel joint – offering a choice of handling techniques. Our unique wand control valve ensures reliable suction and instantaneous release without particle generation.
