PreciseFlex Sample Handler
The PreciseFlex is an autosampler developed specifically for benchtop applications where price, ease-of-use, space requirements and safety are critical. This product is available in a four axis configuration with a servo plate gripper for handling laboratory plates from stacks and hotels or in a three axis configuration with a servo tube gripper for handling cylinder shaped samples from a sample rack. These servo grippers permit the PF to pick up a wide variety of different size samples without using expensive and complicated tool changers. In addition, with servo motors on all of the axes including the gripper, the PF provides facilities for collision/drop detection and squeeze force control not found in other autosamplers.
Optimized for Benchtop Laboratory Applications
This low cost, quiet OEM mechanism is designed to optimize the cost, safety and performance of your workcell. The controller and harness are embedded within the sample handler's structure. Combined with its space saving design, the PreciseFlex is able to service many stations in an extremely small workcell. Also, this sample handler includes safety features that disable motor power when a minimal, unexpected force is encountered, thus allowing the PF to operate without safety shields in benchtop applications.
The PF features a powerful embedded Guidance Vision-Guided Motion Controller. This controller offers unique free mode teaching aids and excellent capabilities for automatically generating elegant and reliable motion sequences. Its features permit you to program smooth straight line and arbitrarily complex paths by simply moving the sample handler by hand to start and end positions and letting the controller handle the rest. Combined with a simple, yet powerful programming language, kinematics for Cartesian motions and quiet, high performance servo motors, the PF reduces cycle times with the most efficient motions possible.
