This section provides an overview for vacuum pens as well as their applications and principles. Also, please take a look at the list of 9 vacuum pen manufacturers and their company rankings.

A vacuum pen is a tweezer with suction power that uses a pump or other device to suck up spherical or small parts that are normally difficult to grasp.
There are two types of vacuum pen: those that require an electric pump and those that are portable. The electric pump type is available in battery-operated and power-operated types. The portable type is pen-shaped and fits into a small space, but it is not very powerful.
The vacuum type is particularly powerful, capable of holding up to 4oz. However, it cannot adsorb dust because the internal filter is clogged.
Vacuum pens can grip small precision parts such as semiconductors and other electronic components, so they are used for transportation and assembly. vacuum pens are useful for surface mounting, mounting on boards, and transporting ICs.
They are used for inspection and maintenance of analytical and physical instruments, semiconductor inspection equipment, various devices, precision instruments, the watch industry, precious metal accessories, etc.
Special vacuum pens are sold for wafers and operate in the same way as suction tweezers.
Vacuum pens are easy to use. Simply point the nozzle at the object to be vacuumed and lightly touch the object to be vacuumed. To release the object, slide the release lever or button on the vacumm pen.
The nozzle on the end of the vacuum pens can be used alone, but a pad can be attached to the nozzle for more stable suction. The pad is made of conductive silicon rubber. The larger the pad, the heavier the object is to be picked up. The conductive nature of the pad prevents static electricity.
Vacuum pens come in two shapes: one with a straight nozzle and one with a curved nozzle. In addition, battery-operated types are simple, while power-operated types are somewhat larger.
There are three types: those that connect to a pump for suction, those with a built-in pump, and those without a pump. The type that connects to a pump and has a built-in pump suctions the object with the force of the pump's suction. In the non-pump type, the pressure in the air chamber of the tweezers is reduced by pressing the air chamber with a finger to suction the object. The non-pump type is smaller and easier to use, but the type connected to a pump has more suction power.
