Guide to Cleanroom Hand Tools and Tweezers

Every cleanroom needs a set of hand tools. Cleanroom hand tools are instruments that perform high-precision tasks such as grasping small objects, cutting small wire, cleaning in tight areas, forming component leads, straightening wires, dissecting, or exploration in tight areas.

Some tools are more versatile than others and some are designed for more specific jobs. The type of hand tool needed depends on the type of work that needs to be done.

The placement of hand tools into a sterile environment can be challenging. That’s why cleanroom hand tools need to be pre-sterilized and packaged properly to reduce the risk of contamination.

There are many different types of cleanroom hand tools. The different types include the following:

  • Tweezers. Tweezers are small hand tools that grasp objects too small to be handled with human fingers. These are a necessity for any cleanroom. The Excelta cleanroom tweezers have handles made out of Thermoplastic styrenic elastomers. The rubber cushioned handles provide comfort and superior insulation from extreme heat. They are designed with straight, curved, or tapered tips and fine or flat points.

  • Cutters. Cutters are ideal for cutting small hard wire. Multi-purpose cutters are a great all-around cutter to include in your small hand tool collection. The Excelta multi-purpose cutter has a medium round head and is made out of stainless steel to resist corrosion. They’re also designed with carbide inserts for maximum blade life.

  • Brushes. Cleanroom brushes are designed for cleaning in tight areas. The Excelta brushes are ESD and cleanroom safe. They have handles made out of stainless steel and bristles made out of Statigo9 fiber. The bristles are clamped into the handle to ensure that no bristle is left behind.

  • Pliers. Cleanroom pliers are used for forming component leads, straightening wires, or just for general purpose applications. Excelta pliers are made out of stainless steel and are designed with dual leaf springs for a smoother action. They come with a variety of noses such as the medium needle nose, medium round nose, medium flat nose, medium bent nose, and medium chain nose. They are tapered for better visibility and accessibility.

  • Scissors. Cleanroom scissors are used for delicate precision cutting and dissection work. The Excelta scissors have a long curved blade made out of stainless steel and are used for general purpose applications.

  • Probes. Cleanroom probes are another small hand tool that is essential to any lab. Probes are medical instruments used for exploration. The Excelta probes are made out of stainless steel and come with either a plastic handle or a serrated handle. The tips are either straight or angled.
