The Precision Alliance Introduces the Industry's First Small Plate Handler for Medical Devices

TPA Motion has developed the first low profile micro plate handler. Its small size and low profile enable device manufacturers to make smaller diagnostic or instrument systems. . Each unit is factory calibrated and tested to provide maintenance free long life in clinical lab and office environments. . The new low profile 96-well plate handler can reach beyond its small foot print. .

Lubricants

Greases lubricate linear systems.

Constructed from compound of super-filtered synthetic lubricants, MSG#1 and MSG#2 optimize smoothness and dynamic life of anti-friction linear bearing and ball screw systems. MSG#1 ensures glassy-smooth, non-sticky feel at low speeds where very fine positioning is required, while MSG#2 features higher penetration number so that it will stay in place during high speed motion, but not so stiff that...
