Getting a grip on our automated plate handler

This short video presents the collaboration between PAA and Maxon Motors in the development of PAA’s new S-LAB automated plate handler. The Maxon Motor drives the S-LAB gripper mechanism which opens and closes the fingers on the plate. A core benefit of S-LAB is reliability in handling plates, which can vary in weight from 50g to 500g, so it is important that the motor provides the power to ensure a secure grip on the microplate.
