Weidmüller offers a selection of ESD pliers, for use in the electronics and precision-mechanics sectors.
What does ESD mean?
Electrostatic discharge can damage micro-electronic components. In proportion to their dimensions, the energy of a electrostatic discharge in a semiconductor can be compared to a lightning strike on a tree. Thus the ESD pliers grip are made of additional materials which are very non-conductive. The static charge is then discharged harmlessly. Only by with working with ESD pliers can you guarantee that no sensitive electronic components are damaged. You also guarantee compliance with the relevant standards and regulations(for example, IEC TR 61 340-5, DIN EN 61 340-5, and SP Method 2472). The two-coloured multi-component grips are ergonomic and optimized for motion patterns during repair work. The shape and material provide a sure grip and reduce fatigue during work. Force is distributed over a larger contact area, resulting in a distribution of the pressure.
