High Precision Tweezers

What are tweezers and where are they used?

ESD tweezers are hand tools used to grab, handle or hold small objects or electronic parts which may not be possible to pick up by hand and require precision and care. They are ergonomically designed to sit comfortably between the thumb and forefinger and are often manufactured from an anti-magnetic stainless steel alloy for durability and longevity. This conductive material is optimal for handling electronic parts or components that are sensitive static electricity charges.

Tweezers can be used for various applications such as PCB repair and microelectronics where very fine pointed tweezers are required. Many people use tweezers for various jobs in assembly, servicing and repair. For holding small electronic parts, tweezers are essential.

Anti-magnetic tweezers can be supplied in a range of lengths and point types. Generally, they are designed for use in the electronics industry where static sensitive components and devices are handled.

Bondline offer precision-engineered, high-quality tweezers for handling small electronic components and parts. They are great for electronics assembly and inspection, PCB repair and laboratory applications. Bondline supply a vast range of tweezers of different sizes, tips and strengths to suit your needs.

Anti-magnetic property is essential

Despite how anti-magnetic tweezers can be expensive compared to magnetic tweezers, their properties do not affect the item being worked on since no magnetism is passed on. It is important to remember that if your tweezers are not completely anti-magnetic, then overtime they will eventually become slightly magnetic. This could happen from touching items that have magnetised parts or even from passing the tweezers over other magnetic fields.

Although an anti-magnetic alloy is used for Bondline’s high precision tweezers, it is not recommended to use them in strong magnetic fields or for handling magnets.

Grounding and ESD Effects

Operators who use tweezers in the electronic assembly are typically grounded, thereby eliminating the risk of static buildup and transmission of static electricity to the component. A bare tweezer, or a tweezer with a static conductive layer, will not provide that same protection and risks damaging the element. It is recommended that you use the correct grounding equipment and accessories alongside your tweezers to ensure maximum protection against ESD charge. Grounding equipment that is recommended to use in accordance to your tweezers include an anti-static wrist strap and cord, anti-static gloves and clothes and Earth bonding points.

Types of Tweezer

With a wide range of tweezers covering sizes, varying strengths and different tip points there are several factors you should consider before choosing a tweezer. Each tweezer serves a specific purpose, whether that’s for handling more delicate and fragile electronic parts or repairing electronic components.

Here is a quick guide on the types of tweezer tips you can find:

  • Bent/Curved – Easy control and accuracy at a more comfortable angle for the user, resulting in reduced operation fatigue.
  • Blunt – The finely curved tip is ideal for applications that may result in components getting damaged or entangled by a sharply pointed tweezer.
  • Cutting – The sharp edges enable the user to cut soft wires.
  • Flat – Ideal for picking up larger objects as they offer a larger surface area than standard tweezers.
  • Pointed – Designed for reaching into small, hard to reach areas for precise pick-up.
  • Round – Useful general-purpose applications that may not require as much precision.
  • Wafer – Flat tips enable safe handling of silicon wafers in the manufacturing of semiconductors without damaging them.

Tweezer Applications

Tweezers are a very versatile hand tool that can be used across a variety of applications and are an essential piece of equipment for those working on highly detailed tasks.

Tweezers are used in many industries, typically:

  • Electronics, Medical Device, Laser, as well as Microwave
  • Device Assembly
  • Circuit Die and Electronic Package Assembly
  • PCB Rework and Repair
  • Work under a Microscope / Microelectronics
  • Biotech, Biology, Military and Aerospace Electronics Assembly
  • Various Laboratory Applications
