Knight Optical supply both pen and bulb type handheld vacuum pickup tools with a range of interchangeable vacuum tips to suit most small part handling applications. They are operated either with a simple click of a button or squeezing the air filled sack - please see options tab for images of each type of pickup. Knight Optical’s range of vacuum pickup tools are a cost effective solution to increasing throughput in optical manufacturing and other applications. Each system is ESD safe. Our Pro-Pen Plus comes with a high quality metal stand with vacuum tip holders to ensure your vacuum system is safely stored where you need it, every time.

Operating our handheld vacuum pickup tools couldn’t be easier! 

  1. Select the appropriate vacuum tip. The rubber seal should be slightly smaller than the part to be handled in order to allow a good vacuum to form.

  2. Ensure that the vacuum tip and optic are clean before use.

  3. Hold down the button on the side of the pickup tool or squeeze the bulb for bulb systems.

  4. Carefully place the vacuum tip against the part to be handled and release the button or bulb, allowing the vacuum to take hold.

  5. Move the part to the desired location and carefully release it by pressing the button or squeezing the bulb again.
