PST is Fluoro Mechanic's sole agent in Australia and New Zealand, but we ship advantageously world-wide.
PST discounts the Japanese list prices (converted to AUD) and no freight charge is added to reasonable-size orders. We don't hold these items in stock, but they are shipped direct from the manufacturer to the customer, generally within two days, from Japan to (non-Australian) customers direct.
This page has links to Fluoro Mechanic's extensive and well designed catalogue. Please choose your requirements and then ask ProSciTech for a quotation. Please don't double up by asking the manufacturer too; it just wastes effort.

Vacuum Wands can be used for handling of small items. Different nozzles are available - including ESD (ElectroStatic Discharge) safe, conducting silicone rubber cups. A complete system (wand, vacuum tube, small pump and suction tip) is more expensive than the E231 Vac-U-Pick, but this system is clean-room suitable, quieter and ESD safe.
WHAT ARE VACUUM AND MANUAL WANDS?
Vacuum and manual wands are tools for gripping and holding delicate miniature objects, especially silicon wafers, securely and without hand contact. This means the object is not contaminated or damaged. A diaphragm vacuum pump connected to a vacuum wand body provides the suction.
What can I use this for?
- Handling of large silicon wafers
- Jewellery making
- Die & small diameter wafer handling
- Camera & watch repair
- Computer & model assembly
- Picking up contact lenses
VACUUM WAND for semiconductor wafer processing
Our unique valve* ensures reliable suction and release of a semiconductor wafer. The well polished inner wall of the valve minimises particle generation. The optically polished wafer tip provides excellent adhesion to a wafer. The wand body can be easily detached from the tubing.
*US Patent 4767142, Japanese Patents 1698352 and 1885465
C SERIES FOR ESD PROTECTION
The body covered with conductive nylon reduces electrostatic effects towards a wafer. The wafer tip is made of conductive PEEK (Polyetheretherketone). The resistance of 106 to 108 ohms provides optimum static protection.
