MX160 Ball Bearing 4-axis Manipulators - 22 mm Travel
A range of ball bearing 4-axis manipulators for life scientists
The MX160 Manipulator series incorporates fast-pitch, screw drive positioning, and smooth ball bearing motion in the X, Y, Z, and probe axes for precision positioning. The spring-loaded lead screw design and solid stop to ensure drift-free operation.
For added positioning versatility, the top stage tilts at any angle through 360°, and includes 22 mm of linear travel along the probe axis. This feature plus 22 mm of X-axis travel make the MX160 ideal for axial cell probing.
Colour-coded controls are used to identify axis location in low light conditions.
Siskiyou Corporation has been producing popular laboratory mechanicals for over 40 years; designing from the outset with quality and flexibility in mind.
Siskiyou do not aim at single disciplines, such as Photonics or Life Sciences, but craft their products to provide end users with the modular tools for constructing systems that are only limited by their imagination.
These concepts have ensured Siskiyou components outperform and outlast competitive products.
