Wandshop.com: specialist product handling solutions for a range of industries
Vacuum tools are ideal for handling semiconductor wafers, dies, electronic components, watch and camera parts, lenses, fibre-optics, jewellery and small parts of any kind. They can be used for any handling application where precision, safety and cleanliness are essential. The Wandshop website is owned and run by Windrush Technology Ltd, the European distributor for Fluoro Mechanic Co., Ltd of Japan.
Vacuum wands for semiconductor wafer handling.
Vacuum wands with cup, nozzle or slit tip, for handling semiconductor dies and small-diameter wafers, electronic components, fibre-optics, watch and camera parts, jewellery, lenses and more.
Manual wands (tweezers) for semiconductor wafer handling.
F series wand bodies are manufactured in Teflon and are the cleanest means of wafer handling. Tips are available in PCTFE, PEEK and Vespel. The tips are optimally sized for each wafer diameter, ensuring that contact is both minimal and secure. The contact surface itself is optically polished, providing excellent adhesion to a wafer. Three body styles are available – fixed tip, collet joint and swivel joint – offering a choice of handling techniques. Our unique wand control valve ensures reliable suction and instantaneous release without particle generation.
These wands are the safest means of wafer handling, and are manufactured in ESD safe materials including PEEK tips. The tips are optimally sized for each wafer diameter, and their design ensures that contact is both minimal and secure. The contact surface itself is optically polished, providing excellent adhesion to a wafer. Two body styles are available – fixed tip and swivel joint – offering a choice of handling techniques. Our unique wand control valve ensures reliable suction and instantaneous release without particle generation.
These wands are ideal for die and small semiconductor wafer handling. They handle a delicate and fragile wafer, part-wafer or die gently and precisely. The wands are available in ESD safe plastic or Teflon. A wide variety of nozzles in sizes down to just 80 microns in diameter are available in various sizes and materials to suit the application. Suction cups from 2.5 mm in diameter are also available for use where the application permits. Furthermore, our flat wafer handling tips can be used for large dies where contact on the back is possible. Our unique control valve ensures reliable suction and instantaneous release.

These wands offer precise, delicate and reliable handling, and are ideal for picking up a wide range of components. Typical applications include all types of printed circuit board work, instrument and general small parts assembly, watch and camera work, lens handling and jewellery making. Wand bodies are available in ESD safe plastic or Teflon. A wide variety of tips, including suction cups and nozzles, is available, with many material and size options. Our unique wand control valve ensures reliable suction and instantaneous release. The special 'slit tip' is designed for fibre-optic handling and similar applications.
These manual wands, or tweezers, allow manual handling of a wafer without excessive contact. Fragile wafers are gently but securely gripped by an optically polished contact surface. This ensures that particle counts are greatly reduced and there is no risk of scratching. PEEK, ESD PEEK and PPS materials are available to suit the application, with a temperature limit of 130°C, while the M800 Vespel tipped stainless steel tweezers can withstand temperatures up to 288°C. Lockable versions are available for increased security of handling.
