Title: Fine wire manipulator

Abstract

A system for manipulating a filament can include a filament supply from which a filament can be drawn, the filament supply being positioned along an axis, a vacuum manipulator assembly positioned along the axis, wherein the vacuum manipulator assembly is configured to engage the filament when a vacuum is drawn through the vacuum manipulator assembly and draw the filament along the axis to a workpiece, and a welding tool comprising a welding head positioned along the axis between the filament supply and the vacuum manipulator assembly, the welding tool being configured to weld the filament to the workpiece.
