Problem: Glass microscope slides are fragile, and cover glasses are thinner and even more delicate. They may need to be assembled in a clean-room environment to avoid cross-contamination of delicate slides.
Solution: Our LAL-30 actuators can control touch-down force to under 10 grams, and have been tested and proven not to break glass in this application. Used with a vacuum to pick glass covers, with a high-speed approach, and a slow softland pick and place of glass, our solution offers the best speed combined with controlled force ideal for this application. Can be used in a clean-room environment, to prevent contamination of microscope slides.
