arrow11Quick-Test Auto-Scanning Tweezers

Precise, non-magnetic tips reliably contact smallest SMD. The Quick Test tweezers gives users an easy way to sort and evaluate loose components and to perform on-board measurements and debugging. Surface mount devices are usually tiny and without wire leads, making it much more difficult to test and identify SMD than conventional components. Precise tips, made of non-magnetic steel, are able to pick and reliably contact even the smallest SMD components, or take measurements from the device already mounted on a board. The probe can also be used to test conventional components with wire leads too short to insert into the test terminals.


  • Measures AC/DC voltage, resistance, continunity & diode test
  • Auto Scanning Mode/Auto range
  • Testing pins gold plated to reduce resistance and prevent rust
  • Uses Lithium battery CR2032, included
  • Will automatically identify whether component is a resistor, capacitor or diode


Resistance Range 300/3K/30K/300K/3m/30M Ohms | Resolution: 0.1 Ohms
Capacitance Range 3/30/300/nF | 3uF/30uF/300uF/3mF/30mF | Resolution 1pF
Diode Check Open Voltage: 2.8V | Testing Current: 2mA

Handle delicate miniature objects without scratching, breaking or pinching. The system avoids contamination of parts and performs functions that tweezers does such as sorting, picking up, holding, carrying, and transferring. As well it is an alter-native way for handling cover slips without the use of forceps


  • Picks up grids faster and easier than tweezers – WARNING: Never use this device on coated grids.
  • Quiet operation.
  • Eliminates all tweezer damage to grids.
  • Good suction (produces 14" Hg vacuum and an air flow of 125 cubic inches/minute); Can pick up aluminum stubs.
  • Can be used as a tool to pick up glass slides, cover slips, wafers, thin film samples, etc.

Double-insulated (115-120V, 60Hz, 2-wire). Light weight, completely assembled and ready for immediate operation as soon as the proper tip is selected and installed. Vacuum is created at the tip by placing the finger over the control hole on the anodized aluminum vacuum pen. To break the vacuum, just remove your finger from the hole.

Vacuum Pick-up System includes:

Vacuum Pick-up System complete set: Vacuum Generator, Aluminum Vacuum Pen, Five Vacuum Tips, Set of seven Rubber Vacuum Cups (size ranging: 9/16", ½", 7/16", ⅜", 5/16", ¼" and 3/16"), an In-Line Filter, and 4 ft (122cm) of Vacuum Tubing.

  1. Select a tip with a rubber vacuum cup slightly smaller than the part you want to pickup. Place it on a probe. Put the probe firmy on the tip of the Handi-Vac tool. Make sure the rubber vacuum tip is free of dust.
  2. Gently squeeze the Handi-Vac bulb and place the soft suction cup squarely on the part, then relax your squeeze. The part is now firmly gripped.
  3. Move the part to where you need it and a give a second squeeze of the bulb to release it.
