Handling small parts for assembly or inspection can be tedious and frustrating work for people. This miniature-component holding clamp makes picking up small pieces easier.
The device can be made inexpensively out of Teflon, Delrin, or aluminum by injection molding or single-point tooling on a lathe and mill. Optional O-ring increases gripping force.
