Agilent Velocity 11 Lid Store Hotel Lid Hotel
The Velocity11 Lid Hotel is compact device that is able to store plate lids so they can be returned to the plates that they were removed from. It includes a sensor at each lid position so the system knows which positions contain lids. Lidded plates are brought to the lid hotel, so that the lids are held by the rollers. The robot then pulls the plate down, leaving the lid behind. The Lid Hotel will not drop a lid in the event of a system power outage or air pressure loss.
Compact space-saving design
Random access to all positions
Gripping action independent of power, vacuum, or air pressure
Active sensing to verify lid location
