Robotic Arms


PerkinElmer's four-axis SCARA robot with built-in safety features enables a side-by-side human-robot corporation without shielding. Its full metal casing space-saving design and high-end motion controllers guarantee fast, smooth and quiet movements.

Transform Your Devices Into a Complete Workflow Solution

plate::handler FLEX Collaborative Arm

Traditionally, industrial robotic arms used in laboratory automation have required shield and redundant safety measures to isolate robots and operators. The plate::handler Flex collaborative robotic arm is a next-generation industrial robotic arm that has been designed to allow safe, side-by-side cooperation with humans. Consequently, the plate::handler Flex collaborative robotic arm will enable the design of workstations automating scientific workflows that do not require expensive and cumbersome safety shields thereby allowing operators to interact with their systems much more closely.
