Laboratory automation podcast
06 May 2021
In this Oriental Motor (UK) podcast, Paul Jepson shows the value of stepper motors, control software and communications systems in contributing to high precision automation systems for medical and laboratory use.
In this podcast episode, Paul Jepson takes us through the scientific and medical industries and discusses how precision, accuracy and control are achieved by carefully selected micro linear actuators, servo and stepper motors.
He explains how the movement of precious liquids needs to be managed for a steady movement in the research lab and how other fluids are moved while being protected in sterile environments (like kidney dialysis machines).
The relatable podcast gives the listener – including co-hosts Nicole Piesse-Turner and Caroline Hayes – insight into the world of high value liquids, worth thousands of pounds per ml and why fluid control systems and peristaltic pumps and more, rely on different motors.
Paul also elaborates on motor control software which support precision movements (e.g., position, speed, acceleration and vibration). He also looks to the role of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things, which rely on communication systems to ensure precision and reliability.
The podcast will appeal to more experienced engineers, who will be introduced to new application areas and real-life use cases as well as students and those taking their first steps in the motor and drive industry.
The Oriental Motor podcasts are designed to entertain and inform engineers in an easily accessible format. At its core is a deep knowledge of the automation industry and expertise in design and customer support for a broad and varied customer base.
