ZEPHYRTRONICS® AIRPICK  ZT-3-MIL
SMD, BGA, Wafer, Glass Slides & Tiny Component Vacuum Handling System
"The ZT-3 AirPick is "used to lift the surface mounted devices evenly during rework,
minimizing chances of a lifted trace or pad."  -- NASA Report Jan 9, 2004
 

The ZT-3 AirPick is your all-purpose vacuum handling system for  miniature SMD’s, BGA's and tiny micro-electronic chips including: chip scale packages, very tiny 201’s, 402’s, 603’s and 805’s. It is ideal for handling semiconductors, wafers and small, flat surfaced objects like plain, siliconized and plastic cover slides.

The ESD-safe ZT-3 AirPick has a self-contained, internal long-life diaphragm vacuum pump relieving technician fatigue. 
No more squeezing bulbs or manipulating difficult buttons, because the ZT-3 has “continuous vacuum.”

The ZT-3 has 10 inches of mercury in vacuum and an open air flow of about 2 full liters per minute.

No Buttons to Press! Let's be brutally honest: There is nothing more awkward, or that complicates the process of lifting and manipulating tiny parts, if you also required the added burden pressing a button to start or stop the vacuum. Why? Trying to press a button with with finger pressure while positioning small devices is distracting and adds an unnecessary level of eye/hand coordination to your task. The ZT-3 requires no finger pressure or button pressing. So superior.

More Details:

The ZT-3 quickly releases parts without residual vacuum problems. The chief complaint by technicians who use other vacuum pick up pens is that they don't easily release the chip. The ZT-3 always releases the chip! The ZT-3 has a lighted power switch, a 3-wire power cord, seven ESD safe suction cups, non-skid rubber feet, most of all, a a slim-line, featherweight hand-piece!

Each ZT-3 AirPick is factory calibrated so vacuum balances the need for lifting the largest of SMD’s and chips, without excessive suction which can lift pads. This is critically important for those who rework with LowMelt®. Engineered with the technician in mind, the ZT-3 Air Pick features a holder integrated right into the center of the design (for right or left handed users) which helps protect and extend the life of delicate suction cups during the rigors of work activity. How thoughtful is that? With two decades in production, with thousands in the field. That's dependability and quality!

New! Ultra Tiny Vacuum Tips for handling microscopic parts. (Scroll down for more info.) The ZT-3 expands utility to even the tiniest parts imaginable. See the photos further down on this page.
