5 Stars for 5 Applications

The main difference between the different grades of tweezers is the precision or fineness of the tips and the Country of Origin. Tweezer part numbers are for the most part generic. The number, 7, 3C, 5, etc. denotes the style or shape. The letter designation after the dash, 7-SA, indicates the material. SA is the common designation for 300 series Stainless Steel.

Excelta offers the common shapes in all 5 grades. 5 star, made in Switzerland, for demanding applications under high magnification. 4 star, made in Switzerland, for Bio-Medical applications requiring high polished tips. 3 Star, made in Switzerland, for Electronic assembly. 2 Star, made in Italy when precision is required and price is a concern and 1 Star, made in Pakistan, for economical concerns.
