Tweezer Technical Information
5 Levels of Precision
Made in Switzerland from 40% cobalt alloy steel, harder than stainless steel, anti-magnetic, excellent resistance to corrosion and resistant to temperature up to 500°C (932°F). Used with very high magnification.
Made of titanium alloy, super neverust® or diamond coated tips. These three materials are stronger than the standard AISI 303/304 stainless steel, extending the life of the tips. In addition, solder will not stick to the titanium alloy and it is very light weight and temperature resistant.
Precision grade tweezers made from neverust® anti-magnetic stainless steel, stainless steel, or carbon steel and are manufactured in Switzerland with high precision points. The perfect choice when working under 5X to 10X magnification.
Standard grade “PI” tweezers are manufactured in Italy with fine precision points at a lower cost. Used with low magnification.
General Precision Grade “SE” tweezers are manufactured for general purpose work when magnification is not required.
Types of Tips
Micro Fine Tips
When working under high magnification with tweezers/forceps it is critical that the points are exactly the same size and meet precisely. Many of these tweezers have relieved tips allowing for excellent visibility under a scope.
These very fine tipped tweezers can be used for low magnification applications, or for work being done without the use of a scope.
General purpose tweezers with semi-fine tips are used for any work done without a microscope.
Blunt Strong Tips
Blunt strong tipped tweezers are the work horse of tweezers. Most of these tweezers can be dropped without much damage to the tips. They last much longer than fine or micro fine tipped tweezers, but lack the accuracy of finer tipped tweezers.
Flat tip tweezers are used for everything from placing and removing labels, to picking up flat items like lenses. These tips are generally rounded.
Application Specific Tips
We create application specific tweezers for ANY application. Over the years certain applications have repeated, prompting us to categorize these application specific tweezers. Those categories include cutting tweezers, paddle tip tweezers, wafer tweezers, miniature tweezers, cross-action tweezers, ergonomic tweezers and component handling tweezers.
