Products for laboratory equipment

Whether microtomes, centrifuges, cappers and decappers, analysis systems or pipetting robots. Measurement and analysis devices as well as machines for sample handling in medical diagnostics are characterised by the desire for ever greater automation and its highly dynamic yet very compact machines.
Our linear axes and motors, energy chains, gears, threaded systems and other components for laboratory equipment are therefore designed for maximum speeds with a long service life.
For example, our completely lubrication-free and maintenance-free plastic components or precise and reliable linear technology, such as linear modules or linear robots, contribute to this.
