Ceramic Tweezer Tip Replacement – Alignable Tips Replacement Procedure
Easy tip replacement procedure for our high precision static dissipative black ceramic tip tweezers. Ceramic tips must be precisely aligned and this procedure ensures perfect balance and symmetry for your fine tip ceramic tweezers. In addition, replacement of these tips versus complete tweezers replacement has provided a cost of ownership reduction of 40%+.
Tip Replacement Instructions:
1.) First, use a small screwdriver to remove the old tips. Of course, if one tip is broken you can replace just one tip at a time.
2.) Next, use the screwdriver to assemble both tweezer tips loosely. Do not tighten them until they are properly aligned per steps 3 and 4.
3.) Vertical Ceramic Tweezer Tip Length Alignment: With new tip(s) on the handles, hold your tweezers vertically with the tips on a solid surface (Figure 1). Apply gentle downward pressure and firmly tighten the screw on the handle with the two oval holes.
4.) Horizontal Ceramic Tweezer Tip Alignment: Close the tweezer and hold the tips between your fingers (Figure 2). Finally, firmly tighten the last screw on the handle with one oval and one round hole.
