2013-02-21 00:03:42 - Smart Tweezers from Siborg Systems Inc. has reached new markets in over 27 countries worldwide, launched websites catering to users in regions, established a new calibration facility, and begun development on a new model.
Smart Tweezers are the revolutionary tool from Canadian Siborg Systems Inc. The powerful device features an integrated set of tweezers and a highly accurate LCR meter able to test all types of passive and through-hole devices, on or off a PCB. Siborg has made agreements with new electronics companies, launched multiple websites, established a new calibration facility for European users and has begun development on a new model of the device with the Russian Academy of Sciences.
The integration of a pair of tweezers, an accurate LCR meter, and a small display screen completely changes the way to test surface mount technology. This technology is become the standard manufacturing process in electronics, and is made up of small components. These components
may or may not be labelled due to their small size, leading to lost component values. With just a touch of the tweezers to a component, Smart Tweezers identifies the type of component and tests for Inductance, Resistance and Capacitance instantly. With features such as; automatic LCR and Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) measurements, offset subtraction, adjustable test signals, diode and continuity tests, component sorting with variable tolerances, etc. make Smart Tweezers indispensable for testing, troubleshooting, debugging and repairing PCBs with Surface Mount Technology.
With new distributors bring Smart Tweezers to 5 continents, Siborg has launched websites dedicated to users in each region ( USA [http://www.smarttweezers.us], India [http://www.smarttweezers.in], Canada [http://www.smarttweezers.ca] , China [http://www.smarttweezers.tw], etc.). Each website features a video introduction [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GxgBbLK9JFM], and tips to help users. Siborg also launched the Smart Tweezers Blog [http://www.smarttweezers.us/blog] which features all the latest news about Smart Tweezers.
"In all electronic production lines, Smart Tweezers LCR-meter comes in handy perfectly complementing powerful but sometimes hard to use bench-type electronic test equipment. Smart Tweezers LCR-meter is an extremely useful tool, allowing to verify results of optical inspection," says Jason Yeh , Sales Manager at GoldTek Co. Ltd. in Suzhou, China.

"By the nature of our business we are in direct contact with many Printed Circuit Board (PCB) manufacturers and designers of new electronic products. They all value Smart Tweezers, the ultimate LCR-meter for Surface Mount Technology (SMT). Light-weight, ease-of-use and accuracy make Smart Tweezers an indispensable tool for PCB debugging and testing as well as component characterization." -Yoshitaka Sato , Director at Van Device Ltd.

The new distributors all agree that Smart Tweezers is a perfect match to their lines of high quality electronics, tools and consumables. These partners are all over the globe; Bokar International (USA), CF System Technology (Malaysia), Dipaul (Russia), SIBBIS International (USA), Production Solutions (Poland), GoldTek Co. Ltd. (China), PrinTec (Netherlands), Van Device (Tokyo), KT International (Indonesia) and Newly-Tsuchiyama (Tokyo).
With all these new places, Siborg Systems, with help from Bokar International and Production Solutions, a new calibration facility has been established in Poland at Production Solutions. This facility provides customers with a more conveniently located place to send their devices. Previous to this new facility, there were only 3 worldwide; in Pasadena, California; Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, and New Delhi, India. Sending devices abroad could be expensive and a timely process, most companies resorted to a third party calibration technique that doesn't actually calibrate the coefficients, but rather just compares the measurement values of Smart Tweezers with the true values of “standard components”. Although this proved that the device may be accurate, it does not guarantee that Smart Tweezers is working at optimal capacity. The new facility provides a place for European customers to send their devices for proper calibration without a lengthy wait.
Siborg Systems and the Institute of Automation and Electrometry at the Russian Academy of Sciences have begun developing a new model of Smart Tweezers. The new model will still feature all of Smart Tweezers aspects that customers have come to expect, but will feature a lower manufacturing cost.
