Virtually any application

The system is designed to be compatible with the commonly used Sigma series: Sigma and  Sigma Classic. This ensures consistency in your measurement results between different testers. The USB tweezers are fitted to a standard pull sensor.

This sensor can also be used to sense when the tips of the jaws touch your sample and can be used to land with a programmable force. However, the USB Tweezers are a stand-alone device and can be used with other systems and virtually any application.

 

Intelligent jaws

The gripping jaws (tweezers with tips) are driven by a built-in closed loop 3-phase brushless micro drive to accurately open or close. The jaw actuators incorporate a strain gauge to precisely measure and control the gripping force.

The gripping force can be programmed and will be maintained throughout the test with a force control loop. Similarly, the position of the jaws is known and controlled via the closed loop micro motor. This also enables programmable control of the closing and opening positions.

Exchange tips within seconds

A thumbscrew allows for quick and easy exchanging of tips. There is a standard range of tips to suit many different applications, for example gold wire pull or aluminium ribbon peel. Custom tip designs for application specific requirements are also possible.

 

Built-in LED lighting

The tweezers come complete with built-in high intensity LED light source. The power and control of the tweezers is delivered by one USB connection to the machine or computer.

Sigma

The Sigma offers a wide variation of tweezers with both a precise gripping action and the flexibility to suit a wide range of applications. Each of the 6 RMU positions can be equipped with manually controlled tweezers, while one RMU position is dedicated for an air controlled and/or electric (USB) controlled tweezer.
