CASE STUDY: Microscope Slide Assembly

Overview

Microscope slideThe Problem

The automation of microscope slide assembly is challenging. Glass microscope slides are fragile, and cover glasses are thinner and even more delicate. Often, assembly is in a clean-room environment to avoid cross-contamination of slides because they are to be used for scientific or medical research.

The ORLIN Solution

Our LAL-30 actuators control touch-down force to under 10 grams, and tests have proven proven not to break glass in this application. In this application, a vacuum picks glass covers with a high-speed approach, and a slow softland routine places the glass. Our solution offers the best speed combined with controlled force because it is ideal for this application. It is suitable for a clean-room environment to prevent contamination of microscope slides.
