Vacuum tweezers

Vacuum tweezers, also known on the market as suction tweezers or Venturi tweezers, facilitate the manual positioning of miniature gears, pistons, housing parts, electronic components and other small parts involving difficult assembly work.


FIPA vacuum tweezers are prized for their low weight and ease of handling. The range includes vacuum tweezer sets with and without ejectors. The models with ejectors are available with or without compressed air valve. Each set consists of one pair of vacuum tweezers, four silicone vacuum cups with four different diameters (2, 4, 6, 8 mm), one spiral tube and two adapters for accommodating the different vacuum cup diameters.

  • * = Values depend on vacuum generator
  • Compressed air- or vacuum-operated special tool for assembly of small parts
  • VTA-Set:
    Vacuum tweezers with built-in ejector, without valve and with air vent. To pick up the object, close the air vent with the fingertip and release to place the object.
  • VTB-Set:
    Vacuum tweezers with built-in ejector, compressed air valve and built-in silencer - hence, very low-noise. The built-in compressed air valve is used to switch on the vacuum only when needed.
  • VTA-Set-1:
    Vacuum tweezers without ejector and with air vent. To pick up the object, close the air vent with the fingertip and release to place the object.
