Xuron®’s ESD Safe Hand Tools Can Be Part of Your Static Free Program

Xuron® tools with ESD safe hand grips

Static electricity is not a friend to PCB (printed circuit board) manufacturers.  Static can cause component failures and a host of other issues.  Products that are “ESD Safe”, meaning they will not generate charge, are a requirement for PCB manufacturers as part of an comprehensive  ESD program.  

All Xuron® hand tools are optionally available with ESD safe handle grips.  They are identified by a black grip imprinted with the ESD safe symbol in yellow.  Adding “AS” after any Xuron® model number will designate this option.

The material we use for our ESD Safe grips conforms to ANSI/ESD.S20.20 and DOD-HDBK-263, and has a surface resistivity of 10(6)-10(9) ohms.  The material is both REACH and RoHS compliant.

If you’d like more information about Xuron®’s ESD safe hand tools, contact your local Xuron Corp. Sales Representative for a consultation or feel free to contact us directly.

I am the Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Xuron Corporation. I've had the pleasure of working here for 25 years and one of my favorite parts of the job is meeting Xuron® tool users and hearing the feedback about the products we make.
