Choosing Precision Tweezers

precision tweezers

Tweezers are tools used for picking up objects too small to be easily handled with human hands.

Precision tweezers - to meet applications in electronics, aircraft & aerospace, miniature assembly, precision engineering, optics, microscopy, etc.

In order to choose the best tool for your application:

  1. Determine the type of points best suited for your application.
  2. Refer to the material guide below and select the correct material for your application.
  3. Remember, there is a trade-off between hardness, magnetism, and corrosion resistance.
  4. Determine the quality level required for your application if applicable.
